Is Lacrosse a Fringe Sport?

Posted: September 7, 2013 by Paul Rai in Alberta Lacrosse, Box Lacrosse, Senior A

Not in Victoria.  It looks like the game is alive and well.  Mann Cup has begun.  This kind of tradition breeds great lacrosse players  both male and female.  Tough to replicate in Alberta.  Would be nice if we can get our Junior A program to this type of high profile.

 

The Mann Cup is tied 2 – 2 in the best of 7 series between the Langley Thunder and the Peterborough Lakers.  The series features some of the top names in all of box lacrosse.  The crowds have been great and after the visiting Langley Thunder took a two game lead in the series, the Lakers came back with two victories to tie the series.  As an Albertan watching from afar, it becomes clear why Ontario and BC continue to be strongest provinces in the sport.  With such great talent playing in their Senior leagues, the young players are exposed to the best and brightest stars during the summer months.   And with the possibility of three more games left in the series, there is still more great lacrosse to be played.  Here are the highlights from Game 4.

Good tilts in Western Lacrosse Association action from the past week.  Nothing like a few scraps to get the lacrosse fans all riled up. One good shot by Scott Rouse.

The Western Lacrosse Association (WLA) is the home of Senor A lacrosse in BC.  Many NLL players toil in the league in the summer to stay in shape.  A lot of young players trying to make it to the NLL use the league as a way to improve their game and get noticed.  It is a very good lacrosse league that has a great tradition in BC.  For fans, the games are affordable and enable young kids to see the game of lacrosse being played at an elite level.  With the good there is always a little bad.  This past week in a WLA game things get a little crazy. Check out his video at the 1 hour and 17 minute mark to see the fun times in the Western Lacrosse Association.  Also check out the rest of the game to watch some very good lacrosse action.  You never know what you will see.
