It was another successful weekend for the Cranbrook Junior Outlaws, winning their playoff series against the Calgary Wranglers. The Outlaws swept the three game series two games to none.

The first game was a 16-10 victory for the Outlaws. It was hard fought game with the Wranglers scoring five goals in five minutes at the start of the third. The Outlaws regained their composure and stuck it out to win that game.

The second game was a 17-7 win for Outlaws. This game was a complete effort from the Outlaws. Each and every player chipped in to play sixty great minutes of lacrosse and come away with a great victory.

The Outlaw players and coaches would like to thank all the fans that showed up for the ten home games throughout the season.
