Posse claims bronze reward in peewee lacrosse provincials

The Prince George Posse saddled up and rode out of Ladner Leisure Centre Sunday afternoon clutching bronze medals.
The Posse defeated Richmond 9-5 for third place in the six-team A2 peewee provincial lacrosse championship.
Jackson Moleski scored three goals for the Posse, his brother Hunter had two goals, while Garrett Sakamoto, Chayse Poustie, Lane Broster and Jayden Larmand fired singles.
"I've never coached kids who play that hard, so it's a real treat to coach them," said Posse head coach Jeff Moleski. "It's actually fantastic. I couldn't be happier and prouder of the kids."
Kael Frederick went the distance in goal for the Posse.
"He was our backbone all weekend," said Moleski.
Saanich edged Kamloops 4-3 for gold.
The Posse tied Richmond 9-9 on Saturday to finish third in the round-robin tournament with a 2-2-1 record. Fourth-place Richmond went 1-2-2 in the preliminary round.
The Posse opened the tournament with a pair of victories – 8-5 over Vancouver and 7-5 over Langley. Saturday’s tie in Ladner came after consecutive losses for the Posse to the two frontrunners. Prince George dropped a 7-6 decision to Kamloops Friday afternoon, then lost 11-6 to Saanich, which went undefeated and wrapped up first place in the standings.
"It was close, we were one goal away from going to the final, if we'd beaten Kamloops, but it was  a good tournament," said Moleski.
The other players on the Posse are: Bryce Heggie, Peter Macneill, Gage Quiring, Jacob Vallentgoed, Linkin Waldner, Nicolas Gerow, Kobe Kidd and Dustin Jones.
n The Prince George bantam Posse will be in Victoria/North Saanich for the A2 bantam championship next weekend. The Posse’s first game is Thursday at 5 p.m. against Ridge Meadows.
