Raptors get ready for lacrosse playoffs

    The Sports Room SFS Pee Wee Raptors wrapped up their regular season play in fine form. 
    They came out right from the start hard scoring on the very first play of the game and never looked back.  The Innisfail Pee Wee’s were no match on this Sunday going down to the Badlands squad 13-0.
  The Raptors jumped two spots in the standings with the win and get a bye in the first round of playoffs which begins on Saturday June 19, in Red Deer.
    Friday night, June 11, both the Bantams and Midget Raptors played their final games. 
    The Midfield Bantams finished up the season in Three Hills playing one of the top teams of the league. They put out a strong effort but just couldn’t keep up with this very strong team. They go into weekend action against Innisfail Friday night at 6 p.m.
    The Ramada Midget Raptors finished their season playing the number one team from Red Deer. The local boys put out their best effort of the year and showed both themselves and Red Deer they can be a force to be reckoned with when they put out their best game.  Badlands played strong defense and controlled the ball for most of the game.  They ended up defeating the Red Deer team 6-4 to drop Red Deer out of first place in the standings. They take on Lacoka Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in Red Deer.
    Dan’s Oilfield Novice Raptors were off this past weekend but will begin playoff play Friday night at 6:15 p.m. against Olds in Red Deer.
    Playoffs are a double elimination format that runs June 18-20 and then finishes up June 26 and 27 in Red Deer.
