The Surrey Rebels Bantam A2 team has returned home from Kelowna with the provincial banner.

A lacrosse team with a Cloverdale connection has plenty to celebrate this summer.

The Surrey Rebels Bantam A2 lacrosse team has won the provincial championships, capping off a regular season that saw the team in third place heading to Kelowna, with a record of 12-4-2.

The provincial championship tournament, held July 15 to 19 in the Okanagan city, included teams from Maple Ridge, Vernon, Coquitlam, Kelowna, Victoria, New Westminster and Vancouver Island.

The Bantam A2 Rebels finished the tournament undefeated,

beating teams from New Westminster (9-5), Kelowna (6-5), and Victoria (3-1) in the lead-up to the semi finals, where Surrey beat Peninsula (Vancouver Island) 8-1, and again bested Victoria (7-5) in the gold medal game.

Surrey goaltender Ryder Bremner was named tournament MVP and was named to the All-Star Team.

Surrey’s Keenan Martin received the Fair Play award for his play in the provincial tournament.

It’s been a successful season for the Surrey Rebels Bantam A2s, who also took the gold medal at the Hyack Tournament in New Westminster and won silver at the Barn Burner tournament in Penticton.

Several members of the team hail from Cloverdale, which is also where the team practices twice a week (at Cloverdale Athletic Park). Their home games were held at Cloverdale Arena.
