Last weekend saw plenty of lacrosse action across all divisions for the Taber Thrashers.

U9

The U9s had a two-game as they were in Lethbridge to take on the Lethbridge Cudas and the Brooks Drillers. The first of the weekend went on Saturday and saw the Thrashers line up against the Cudas and unfortunately for Taber, they were blanked 8-0.

Looking for a Reb sound, the team was back in action later that night as they took on the Brooks Drillers. The Thrashers struggled again to find the back of the net as they fell 11-0.

The next action for the U9 Thrashers comes on June 15 when they head to Medicine Hat to take on the two Sundevils teams. The first game is at 11 a.m. against Sundevils White and then 2 p.m. against Sundevils Black. The following day the team lines up against the Sundevils Black at 10 a.m. and then Sundevils Yellow at 1 p.m.

U11

It was a two-pack for the U11 Thrashers as they were also in Lethbridge. First up was a game against the Medicine Hat Sundevils Yellow on June 1. In a big offensive day, the Thrashers were able to carve out a 10-7 victory. Holden Capner led the way for Taber with four goals while Kade Lebeuf had a hat trick and a single assist. Acacia Bear had two goals while Damien Ellis had a single goal in the win. Augustus Rucker collected the win in the net.

Looking to sweep the weekend, the Thrashers took on the Sundevils Black later that afternoon. It was another tight game but this time, the Thrashers could not mount a comeback as the Sundevils took it 7-3. Lebeuf had all three Taber goals while Bear had a lone assist.

The Thrashers are back at it on June 15 when they head to Medicine Hat for two games. First up is a rematch with Sundevils Black at 9 a.m. followed by Sundevils Yellow at 1:30 p.m.

U13

It was a single-game weekend for the U13 Thrashers as they were in Lethbridge to take on Brooks Drillers White on Saturday evening. No boxscore was available Tuesday morning.

The Thrashers see two more games on June 15 in Medicine Hat as they take on Sundevils Black at 9 a.m. and Sundevils White at 6 p.m.

U15

The U15s took on the Lethbridge Cudas in their single game this past weekend. On the road, the Thrashers fought and clawed but could not find a win as they fell 10-7.

June 15 sees a road trip to Medicine Hat as they take on the Lethbridge Cudas at 12:30 p.m. and then the Medicine Hat Sundevils at 6:45 p.m.

U17

It was a tournament weekend for the U17 Thrashers as they were in Innisfail for the 2024 Spirit of the Sticks Tournament. The Thrashers got off to a great start in the round-robin as they went 3-0 with wins over the Strathmore Venom (10-4), Innisfail Phantoms (9-5), and Calgary Axemen (7-4).

With a 3-0 record, the Thrashers found themselves in the tournament final where they took on the Red Deer Chiefs. With another great performance, the Thrashers were able to come home with gold medals as they took the game 7-5.

The Thrashers look to continue that success on June 15 in Medicine Hat as they return to league play. First up is a matchup against the Lethbridge Cudas at 2:45 p.m. followed by a game against the Medicine Hat Sundevils at 8:15 p.m.
