Bantam Voltz win league championship

With no losses in their league’s regular season, it would come as little surprise to find the bantam Voltz were able to step up and win the league’s playoffs last weekend.  

The team went 10-0-2 in the South Saskatchewan Lacrosse League regular season and a perfect record in the playoffs en route to their trophy with a 7-2 win over the Swift Current Rampage Blue.

But it took the Voltz until overtime to take care of the Swift Current Rampage White in the semifinal. Tied 3-3 after three periods on two goals from Kalen Stang and once from Kaden Chrest, the teams played another full period to determine a winner. Stang and Chrest each scored in the opening moments of overtime and the Voltz held on after a late Rampage White goal for the 5-4 win.

The final was close on the scoreboard until the third period when the Voltz took care of the Rampage Blue team with some late magic. Chrest scored three and Nathan Wagstaff scored a pair, while Stang and Kolby Forseth scored a single. Eight different players scored assists in the gold medal game.

The Voltz will now get ready to play in provincials, hosted in Estevan July 6-8.
