Bantam Outlaws capture silver

In the past: Midget Outlaws move on, put appeal behind them

The Shuswap Outlaws Bantam box lacrosse team are returning home with silver hardware.

The Outlaws battled with the Campbell River Ravens for the Bantam B box lacrosse provincial title in Kelowna last Sunday.

Over the four-day tournament the Outlaws played a total of five games, including the final.

In the first game of the round robin, Shuswap easily defeated the Langley Thunder 9-2.

Fatigue set in for the Outlaws in their second game of the day versus the Juan de Fuca Whalers.

The game was closely contested, but the Whalers out-shot the Outlaws 8-5.

The following day, Shuswap regained their composure, seeing off the Coquitlam   Adanac 6-3.

The Outlaws two wins in the round robin was good enough to advance them into the semi-finals.

The Prince George Posse was unable to match the offensive output of the Outlaws in the semi-final. Shuswap edged the Posse 5-4, booking a spot in the finals against Campbell River.

Following the tournament, two of the Shuswap Outlaws players were awarded for their play at the recognition ceremonies held at the Prospera Place Arena.

Jorge Arrazola-Sam earned a Team Warrior Award, and Mitchell Brown earned the Team All Star Award.

Midget Outlaws

The Shuswap Outlaws Midget box lacrosse team is prepped and ready to head to Prince George for the Midget provincials.

Following the zone championships against Merritt and the appeal to have the decision overturned, the Outlaws are poised to return home with some hardware. The Outlaws will face off in three round  robin games against the Ridge Meadows Burrads, from Maple Ridge, the New Westminster Salmonbellies and the Peninsula Warriors, from Victoria.
