The Cowichan Valley Thunder took home the Island midget C lacrosse league championship, and are now taking aim at the playoff title as well.
The Thunder placed first in the midget C circuit, and were presented with the league banner on June 29.
The following Friday, they beat Juan de Fuca 10-2 in an actionpacked playoff game at the Island Savings Centre, and last Sunday, they knocked off Campbell River 7-0 in Nanaimo on the strength of Theron Keel’s shutout goaltending, earning a berth in the Island final.
The Thunder will head to Archie Browning Arena this coming Sunday to take on JDF once again for the Island playoff banner. That will be the team’s final game before they head to Campbell River for provincials at the end of July.
