Lacrosse is over for the season, at least in Stettler, as none of the Thunder teams made it into the post-season.

Despite missing playoffs, the teams showed great improvement all year long, according to Kim Smyth, association vice-president. The association held its annual tyke and mini-tyke festival this past weekend, Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12.

“We had a great wind-up for tyke and mini-tyke Lacrosse this weekend,” she said. “Twelve teams from all over central Alberta were here on Saturday for the tyke festival (7-8 year olds) and nine mini-tyke teams (3-6 year olds) on Sunday, where we handed out just under 300 medals to players and coaches.”

While the mini-tykes and tykes held their season-ending festival, the other divisions played their final games.

Midget faced Olds, losing 12-1. Bantam also faced Olds, losing 10-3, before capping their season with a 14-1 loss to Red Deer.

Peewee headed to Didsbury on Sunday, where they lost 8-1. Novice played Ponoka on Saturday, losing 6-2, before hosting Sylvan Lake on Sunday, ending in a 3-3 tie.
