U12 Lightning romp to silver at Richmond lax tournament

The U12 Mid Island Lightning brought home the silver medal from the tier 2 division of the Richmond Roadrunner Romp field lacrosse tournament held over the Remembrance Day weekend.

The Lightning blazed through the round robin with a perfect 4-0 record, beating Port Coquitlam 9-3, Ridge Meadows 3-1, Penticton 10-1 and Vancouver 8-4. Mid Island faced North Shore in the semifinals, winning 7-4 as Cameron Lumb scored five goals and Brandon Carlson added a pair of his own.

That set up the final against Kamloops, which turned out to be Mid Island’s closest game not only of the tournament, but of the season so far. The teams went into the second half tied 2-2. Kamloops scored in the third quarter to go ahead, but Lumb scored his third of the game to tie it up. It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that Kamloops was able to get the upper hand on Mid Island with two unanswered goals.

Lumb led the team with 24 goals and one assist over the six games, followed by Carlson, who scored 10 goals and set up five others.
