The 2015 Junior B lacrosse season is quickly coming to a conclusion across Canada. In British Columbia there are three Junior B leagues with playoffs recently concluded. League champions will meet host Westshore Bears in Victoria to crown a provincial champion. The three-day tournament begins July 31 and ends with the Gold medal game on Sunday, August 2. All games will be played at The Q Centre.
In the Pacific Northwest Junior Lacrosse League playoffs Saanich Tigers swept a two-game series over Westshore Bears, the tournament host. Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoffs went the distance with the Kamloops Venom knocking off the undefeated regular season champ Vernon Tigers. Regular season winner Coquitlam Jr. B Adanacs went undefeated in the West Coast Junior Lacrosse League, but were upset in the league finals by New Westminster Jr. B Salmonbellies.
This season the Founders’ Cup national tournament is scheduled for August 18-23 in Calgary. Due to costs associated with competing at the tourney, the provincial champion will not automatically compete. Instead, Coquitlam will represent the BCLA in 2015, regardless of medal placement.
