Estevan's peewee and bantam teams, along with several local midget players, competed in the Sask. Lacrosse Festival Provincial Championships from July 4 to 6.

Their first game was on July 5 against the Swift Current Rampage, and they lost 13-1. The following game they were defeated15-0 by the Regina Titans.
The next day they faced the Saskatoon Exterminators, and fell 15-3. After finishing fourth in their pool, they played the fourth place Moose Jaw Mustangs from the other pool, and lost 8-3, ending their tournament.
Fogarty said the tournament was a great learning experience for the Cannons.
Cannons goaltender Christian McArthur received the tournament MVP award, and captain Cale Adams earned all-star honours.
The Estevan Cathedral Energy Bantam Warriors went winless at provincials, but coach Rhett Handley said that they improved each game.
Their first game was against the Moose Jaw Mustangs on July 4, and they lost 14-2.
The following game they fell 13-1 to the Regina Honeybadgers. Handley said he noticed the team’s confidence grew from the first game.
The final game, on July 5, resulted in a 14-2 loss to the Saskatoon Mammoth.
Throughout the tournament, Handley said that the team played physical, and he hopes to see the players come back next season.
Local midget players Tianna Sieben, Derian Pratt, Wyatt Haux and Austin Ludwig played for the Moose Jaw Mustangs at the tournament, and earned bronze medals with the Mustangs.
Tianna Sieben was named the midget tournament's MVP.
The Estevan Tarpon Energy Juvenile Big Dogs lacrosse team's season came to an end in a forfeit.
They were scheduled to play the Saskatoon Smash in a Prairie Gold Lacrosse League first round playoff match-up. But the Big Dogs didn’t have enough players to compete, and so the Smash automatically advanced to the semi-finals.
