The Nanaimo Timbermen bantam A2 team was second best in the province this year. The Island champs took silver at the B.C. Lacrosse Association’s provincials in Vernon last weekend.
Nanaimo lost to the Kamloops Rattlers 6-3 in last Sunday’s gold-medal game in Vernon. It was Nanaimo’s only loss in its five games as the team defeated the North Shore Indians and Mission Sasquatch and tied the Rattlers in pool play. The bantam Timbermen then edged the Saanich Tigers 9-8 in Saturday night’s semifinal.
Jake Mickelson was chosen a tournament all-star and Martin Hermans won the Fair Play Award.
Nanaimo’s Jacoby Krassman was selected as the tournament’s Fair Play Official.
