With numbers on the lower side this year, a handful of lacrosse players from the Oceanside area are taking their talents elsewhere to continue playing this season.

At the start of their season, Eric Thompson, Taylor Hutchison, Sterling McCullough and Garrett Bell all headed up to Campbell River to join the North Island Rage.

Since joining the team, the group of four has become a trio as Bell suffered a broken leg and will miss the rest of the season.

Thompson, Hutchison and McCullough continue to play for the Campbell River side, holding on to top spot in the U-16 division.

With provincials slated to take place in Burnaby starting in February, the team is bound to battle for a shot at being crowned the best in B.C.

Another group of players, playing the in U-14 division, are Tyler Smith, Leino LeStage, Arthur Miller, Derian Thompson and Jasmine Shafi.

The Mid-Island Lightning is currently sitting in first place in the U-14 division and is also poised to make a run during the provincials, also in Burnaby.
