Lightning romp to medals in Richmond

The U13 Mid Island Lightning won gold at the Richmond Roadrunner Romp while the U15 Lightning played to silver.

The U13 Mid Island Lightning won gold in their division at the sixth annual Richmond Roadrunner Romp field lacrosse tournament last weekend, while the U15 Lightning played to silver in their division.

The U13 Lightning got off to a slow start out of the gate in their opening game, falling behind North Shore by three goals at halftime, but they rallied to salvage a 4-4 tie. Building on that comeback, they went on to beat Pacific Rim 8-5 and Vancouver 9-6 to finish first in the round robin as the only undefeated team in their pool.

Another sluggish start in the semifinal put Mid Island down 2-0 in the first quarter against the Victoria Titans, but they turned that around and won 10-3. They were even stronger in the tournament final against the Kelowna Kodiaks, romping to a 10-2 victory.

Game MVPs for the Lightning in Richmond were Devyn Zunti, Connor Loch-Labelle, Joshua Wong, Ethan Owen and Brandon Carlson.

The U15 Lightning sailed through the round robin, beating Delta 11-1, Coquitlam 12-5 and Ridge Meadows 2 13-2. They dumped Richmond 12-5 in the semifinals, then played Kamloops in the final, losing a close battle 13-8.

“Every player on the team contributed to the score with either a goal or an assist,” team manager Paula Harris noted. “It was a true team effort for the silver medal win.”

Goalie Keegan Smith, Gavin Spencer, Jazzy Shafi, Jack Sanderson and Sam Baxter were the game MVPs.
