Raiders meet Tigers in junior lacrosse showdown

Kelowna in Vernon Wednesday night as teams battle for first place

A battle for top spot in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse will take to the floor Wednesday night at Kal Tire Place in Vernon as the Kelowna Raiders battle the hometown Tigers.

The Raiders (11-2-1) lead the Tigers (10-3-1) by two points for first place, as each team has two games left to play.

The Raiders have taken two of three meetings between the clubs this season.

“You want first place and home floor for the playoffs, so this is a big game for both teams,” said Raiders head coach Travis Wray. “Both teams have good firepower and are good defensively, so I’d say we’re pretty well matched.”

If the teams end up tied at season’s end, the most goals for during the regular season would serve as the tiebreaker.

Kelowna will close out its regular season on Thursday, June 27 at home to Armstrong.

The Raiders are coming off a 17-10 win over the South Okanagan Flames on Thursday night.

League-leading scorer Brendan Urban led the Raiders attack with four goals and six assists. Scott Renner had two goals and seven assists, Evan Helgesen scored four times, while Andrew McMillan fired a hat-trick for Kelowna.


Urban is a runaway in the scoring race with 58 goals and 95 points. The league records are 69 goals and 116 points, set by Alex Turner of Kamloops.
