The Sylvan Lake Yetti rolled at the most critical juncture of their lacrosse season.

On the road in Fort Saskatchewan, the Yetti won three games to clinch the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League Junior B Tier II Championship title.

First up, Friday night they knocked off the High River Heat 14-7 to win the RMLL South Division title. Joel Hollingsworth had a hat trick and Zachary Daniels four goals in the victory.

Saturday, they continued their pursuit of a provincial title. They knocked off the Lakeland Heat 13-8 to move to 2-0. Eric Taylor had six goals in the victory, while Daniels and Kien Bowen each added a pair.

In the final game of round robin, the Sherwood Park Titans edged the Yetti 5-4 but the two teams met again Sunday for gold.

In the gold medal game, the Yetti came out on fire and rolled to a 14-3 victory.

Hollingsworth led the charge in the final with a four-goal night. Bowen, Tristen Hess, and Eric Taylor also each buried a pair in the gold medal game.

Since 2000, it is the first Junior B Tier II provincial title for the Yetti.

The winning roster included Ethan Hanson, Eric Nikolai, Joel Hollingsworth, Joshua Koger-Ebertz, Cameron Tubbs, Eric Taylor, Braydon McLaughlin, Tristan Tubbs, Colton Harnack, Kien Bowen, Vitaliy Kravchuk, Tristen Hess, Zachary Daniels, Dawson Hilla-Hartt, Adam Sylvester, Noah Sinclair, Sam Stacey, Austin Gallant, Khale Skinner and Andrew Barnes. The Yetti were coached by Cal Thudium, Arnold Bowen and Justin Moltzahn.
