Mid-Island Lightning finished regular season play with two convincing wins to take first place in the Tier 2 division for the island in Under 14 field lacrosse.

Mid-Island swamped Oceanside 11-2 and 12-4 at the Cowichan Sportsplex in make-up games from October.

Mathieu Jung led the Lightning with five points on two goals and three assists in the first game. Brayden Zunti fired a hat trick and added an assist while James Taylor scored a pair of goals.

Singles were tallied by Colton Lidstone, Trey Cleemoff, Thomas Vaesen and Callum Bevington. Kyle Page played well in goal.

Jung compiled the same scoring stats in the rematch. Cleemoff delivered a hat trick while seven players notched singles.

Rowan Clinging scored his first of the season and other goals came from Zunti, Jacob Taylor, James Taylor, Tyson Hendra, Brian Robb and Patrick Little. Lidstone took his turn in goal.

The Lightning U12 team also finished first in its Tier 2 division and went directly into the island championship game at Nanaimo.
