Langley boxla trio wins four medals in 40 days

A trio of Langley Thunder midget A1 lacrosse players have captured four medals since the beginning of summer.

Ryan Martel, Nathaniel Kozevnikov, and Quinn McItrick earned their first gold medal with their Thunder teammates, with a 7-6 win over Cali-Lax in the Calgary Canada Day National

Lacrosse tournament held over the Canada Day weekend in Calgary.

Then they were off to Nanaimo for the BC Summer Games, where their Zone 3 squad earned a silver medal after falling 5-4 to Zone 2 in the final.

The next weekend saw Martel, Kozevnikov, and McItrick competing with their own Langley Thunder midget A1 team in the B.C. provincial championship in Campbell River.  

The Thunder faced their longtime rival, the Coquitlam Adanacs, in the championship game of the tournament, finishing with a silver medal.

And just this past weekend saw them playing with Team B.C. in the Canadian nationals in Coquitlam and New Westminster, where they defeated Team Alberta 14-2 on Aug. 9 at

Queen’s Park Arena in New West to become the Canadian midget national champions.

Martel scored a hat trick and added two assists in Team B.C.’s lopsided win over Alberta. Quinn also scored for the provincial squad.

Next up for this threesome is a friendly five-game “bragging rights” series against Team Ontario to be played later this month.
