PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The Fort St. John Minor Lacrosse Association’s teams were in Prince George this past weekend for a number of games.

A team from the ‘Tyke’ division competed in a league game for the first-ever time on Saturday against players from Mackenzie. Both teams were bolstered with a number of Prince George players.

The Midget team also took to the floor on Saturday for a pair of back-to-back games against two Midget teams from Prince George. Despite a solid attempt, the team fell to the PG1 team 10-5. Fatigue ended up being a factor in the team’s second game of the afternoon against PG2, which they also ended up losing 17-4.

The Pee Wee team also played two back-to-back games on Saturday afternoon, losing the pair to the Prince George PG3 and PG1 teams by scores of 11-5, and 30-0 respectively.

The Novice team was the first to hit the floor bright and early on Sunday morning, and despite dropping their first game to Prince George, came back and won their second game against Williams Lake 13-10.

The combined FSJ/Mackenzie Bantam team also ended up with a 1-and-1 record in weekend action. The team doubled up against Williams Lake in a close 6-3 win before dropping to Quesnel 15-2.

All four teams will be headed on the road again this weekend, making their shortest journey of the season to Mackenzie, which will also be their last weekend of regular season action.
