Young Langley lacrosse squads nail it at Golden Spike tourney

Langley’s younger lacrosse players are bringing home the hardware as the popularity of the sport grows locally.

The Novice A and B squads, nine- and 10-year-olds, were at the Golden Spike Tournament, earning silver and bronze, respectively.

“They played amazing and came out with a victorious silver medal,” said Jenn Schroeder, about the Novice A team.

Langley Novice B manager Mya Bainbridge said the team were on the road this past weekend.

“We played in the Port Moody Golden Spike tournament on June 26 against Port Coquitlam 2 for the bronze medal and won 15-4,” she said

Goalie Deklan Morrison put up a strong defense on both the Saturday games only allowing in one goal per game, which is a very low score for lacrosse, she noted.

“On Sunday’s bronze game the entire team worked hard together to ensure the 15-4 win,” Bainbridge added.

The Novice As head off the to Jack Crosby Tournament July 7-10.

The season started in April and finishing after the Crosby, Schroeder explained.

“Then most of the kids start to get heated up for Field Lacrosse which starts in September,” she said.
