Cowichan Midget B Thunder ousted by Peninsula

With a pair of games on July 4, the 2015 box lacrosse season came to an end for the midget B Cowichan Valley Thunder.

As the fourth-place team in their division during the regular season, the Thunder ended up meeting the first-place Peninsula Warriors for a best-of-three firstround series.

The first two games were scheduled for July 4 at Kerry Park Arena, and the third game was unnecessary as the Warriors swept their way to victory with 12-3 and 8-3 wins.

Jacob Middlemiss-deGroot got the Thunder going early in the morning game, scoring after just a minute and a half of play, but the Warriors retaliated with three goals before the period was over. Eric Young got Cowichan back within a goal in the second period but Peninsula surged ahead again. Brayden Grantham scored for the Thunder in the third period, but it was too late to narrow the gap. Brendon McDill, Sam Baxter and Clayton Raphael had assists in the opening game.

Miles Brooks scored a pair of goals in the first period of game two, and Cowichan held a 2-1 edge after 20 minutes. The Warriors dominated the second period, but the Thunder weren’t going to give up quietly and got a goal from Baxter in the last five minutes of the game to keep things interesting. McDill, Young and Kurtis Smith recorded assists in the second game.
