Raiders second in provincial lacrosse

The Kelowna Raiders put up a fight but had to settle for the silver medal at the B.C. Lacrosse senior C box lacrosse championship in Port Coquitlam.

Named in honour of former Raiders player Dave Bannister, the provincial tournament was part of a dual championship featuring a total of nine teams from B.C. and Alberta.

After beating the Alberta champs from Calgary 9-6 in their opener on Friday, the Raiders

followed up with a 9-6 loss to the Coquitlam Cobras.

On Saturday, Kelowna dropped two tough games to the Ladner Pioneers 12-10 and 10-6.

Ladner, a bigger and faster squad, burned the Raiders with their fast-breaking style.

The Port Moody Express won both the provincial and tournament gold medals.

On the basis of goals for and against, the Raiders ended up with the silver provincial medal,  with the bronze going to Prince George.

The Raiders won the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League title last month, their sixth senior C men's valley title in the last seven years.
