U12 Bucs off to Victoria this weekend

Local field lacrosse team set to play rescheduled games

From John Shafi an update on the Oceanside Buccaneers field lacrosse season.

According to the longtime local box lacrosse coach turned field general, the U12s will play Vic Field on UVIC Turf Fields this Sunday.

“These two games are make-up games from last November that had to get rescheduled.”

The U12’s will then have two playoff games against Vic Field 2 back down in Victoria on Sunday, Jan. 29.

Win that game and the young ‘Bucs advance straight to the Island Championship. Lose and they will play one more game against the other losing team for third spot on the Island and the final berth in the BCs.

The U14’s are back home up at Springwood Park Jan. 29 to take on Vic Field.

Win that game and the ‘Bucs will play either Mid-Island or PacRim for the Island title the following weekend.

“We are trying to get the Island Championships played in Nanaimo on the Turf Field at Beban Park,” said Shafi, “but it may end up down at UVic.”

 

UVic is also hosting this year’s BC Field Lacrosse Championships Feb. 16-19.
