They had their closest contest in the championship game, but the Gloucester Griffins Midget Boys’ Lacrosse Team kept its perfect record intact at their home club’s Ray Broadworth Memorial Tournament from July 12-14. The Griffins edged the Sarnia Pacers 5-4 in the division final on the heels of earlier victories over West Island, Nepean, Sarnia (in pool play) and North Shore (in the semi-finals). The Tournament brought together a total of 35 teams from as far as Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Akwesasne. The host club made semi-final appearances in the Tyke, Novice and Bantam events (the Griffins’ top Peewee team was away competing in ‘A’-level provincial championships qualifiers). Midget Griffin Austin Lamoureux will represent Team Ontario at the Aug. 20-24 Minor Box Lacrosse National Championships in Coquitlam, B.C.
