The Kelowna B1 team celebrates its victory at the Bill McBain Peewee Lacrosse Tournament last weekend at Memorial Arena.

The host Kelowna B1 team hoisted the championship trophy at the 2013 edition of the Bill McBain Memorial ‘Raised in a Cage’ Peewee Lacrosse Tournament.

In Sunday’s gold medal final at Memorial Arena,  the Kelowna boys overcame a slow start to defeat Shuswap 6-3.

After a scoreless second frame, the hosts erupted for four unanswered goals in the third period to secure the tournament title. Bradley Swecera scored a hat-trick in the third, while Tyler Johnstone added the other.

In the round robin, the Kelowna B1 squad defeated West Kootenay 10-0, lost to Shuswap 4-2 and defeated Kelowna B2 6-5.

In the semifinal, the B1s downed the B2s again, this time by a 4-2 score.
