The Cranbrook Outlaws minor lacrosse program hosted a tournament this weekend and were involved in a number of high-spirited games.

With every age group from Tyke to Midget participating in the ‘Kootenay Shootout’, Cranbrook teams competed valiantly across the board.

In the Novice age group, the Outlaws #1 Re/Max won 14-1 over Castlegar to earn a bronze medal, while the Outlaws #2 Edward Jones won silver after losing 6-5 to North Okanagan.

Cranbrook’s lone team in the PeeWee group made it to the finals, but after taking a 3-1 lead into the third period of the gold-medal game, lost in heartbreaking fashion to a Medicine Hat team who came back and won 5-3.

The Outlaws Bantam team lost 6-5 to the Calgary Sabrecats in the bronze medal game of their tournament, finishing in fourth place out of seven teams.

The Midget Outlaws, meanwhile, captured a silver medal after beating Blackfald in the semifinals 4-3 and losing to Calgary 5-1 in the finals.
