The Alberni Valley Novice Tyees show off their silver medals earned in the Annual Travis Bateman Memorial Lacrosse tournament in Victoria.

The Alberni Valley Novice Tyees came home sporting big smiles and silver medals after participating in the Annual Travis Bateman Memorial Lacrosse tournament at the Bear Mountain Arena in Victoria last month.

The Tyees opened with a 5–5 tie against the host Westshore Whalers. They then proceeded to post back-to-back victories (6–3 over the Victoria Esquimalt Eagles and 5–2 over the Campbell River Ravens) to finish first in the 12-team house division.

Alberni advanced to the gold medal game against the Comox Valley Wild and fought hard, battling back from several two  goals deficits during the final that ended 10–7 in favour of the Wild.

Team manager Tricia Marriot was proud of the team’s effort and hard work, especially since they played shorthanded all weekend. Five of their teammates were unable to make the trip, she noted.

Alberni’s Memphis Dick, Travis Smith and Ethan Eyford earned Player of the Game honors during the tournament.
