South Sask Stealth open lacrosse provincials weekend with pair of gold medals

South Sask claims title in U17 and U15 divisions, win bronze in U13 division as tournaments underway in Prince Albert

MOOSEJAWTODAY.COM -- The South Sask Stealth turned a season filled with success into a pair of Sask Lacrosse provincial championship gold medals on Thursday.

The Stealth claimed gold in both the U15 and U17 ‘A’ divisions, while the U13 Stealth won bronze as provincial tournaments get underway in Prince Albert.

South Sask finished in first place with a 10-4 record in the three-team U17 league during regular season and received a bye to the final, where they’d battle to a 4-3 overtime win over the Saskatoon SWAT.

The Stealth were also tops in the regular season in the U15 division at 9-4-2 and opened with a 13-2 win over the Northern Predators before downing the SWAT 7-3 to claim gold.

The U13 crew didn’t have as much luck during the season with a 3-12-0 record, and they’d fall 12-5 to unbeaten Regina in their opener. The Stealth were able to rebound in style, though, claiming bronze with a 7-5 win over Saskatoon.
