Boys in the box win lacrosse gold

Manitoba whips Saskatchewan in Bantam B title final

  • Print

It was exactly where they wanted to be at the end of the competition. Team Manitoba won the gold medal B championship to wrap up a successful run at the 2013 Bantam Box Lacrosse National Championship.

Manitoba head coach Lyle Sasek and his team of 13- and 14 year-olds set their sights on getting to the gold medal B game at the championship at Billy Mosienko Arena from Aug. 2-7.

Team Manitoba defeated Saskatchewan 6-3 in the final game to claim the championship. Manitoba was leading 2-1 after two periods of play and tacked on four goals in the final frame. Garrett Depape led Manitoba, scoring three goals and tacking on an assist for four points in the game. Depape led all Manitobans in points for the championship, accumulating nine (six goals, three assists) through eight games.

The victory was especially sweet considering Saskatchewan walloped Manitoba 11-1 during the round-robin portion of the event. One of the keys to the victory was limiting Saskatchewan's leading scorer Matthew Henry's chances. In the final, Henry only scored one goal. In the round robin game Henry scored three goals and one assist for four points.

The Manitobans went 1-5 through the round robin with their lone win against Quebec. They played Quebec in the bronze medal B game and defeated them 3-2 to advance to the final against Saskatchewan.

Team Ontario won the gold medal A game by defeating British Columbia 9-1.

Ontario went undefeated at the championships, winning all seven of its games.
