Lacoka Locos finish off season at provincials

A few Lacoka Lacrosse teams made their way to provincials, but just one came away with a title.

The event was played at several venues around Calgary July 11 to 14 with Lacoka represented in the Midget boys and girls, Bantam boys, Peewee boys, Novice and Tyke divisions.

Lacoka’s Tyke squad won all three of its games in the round robin format. They defeated the Calgary Sabrecats 5-2 on July 11, doubled up the Calgary Axemen 6-3 on July 12 and then did the same thing July 13 to Okotoks.

Meanwhile, the Midget boys fell 11-5 in their opener on July 11 to the Calgary Hornets, but recovered later in the day to defeat the Okotoks Raiders 9-7. Lacoka would lose July 12 7-4 to the Calgary Axemen and closed out their round robin with a 7-2 loss to Lethbridge July 13.

For the Midget girls, it wasn’t a tournament, but a best-of-three series against Beaumont that was used to determine the provincial champion. The first two games were played July 13 with Beaumont coming out on top in both games by scores of 9-3.

The Bantam squad didn’t get started off on the right foot, as they were trounced 14-5 by Lethbridge July 11. The team bounced back the next day to post a 9-8 win versus the Calgary Axemen. Unfortunately, Lacoka needed to win both games on July 13 to have a shot at making the final, but lost to Lakeland 11-6 before beating Olds 9-4 to end their tournament.

Provincials also ended with a 2-2 record for the Peewee club. They opened up with a 12-7 loss July 11 to Sylvan Lake then edged Lakeland July 12 by a score of 10-8. On July 13, Lacoke beat up on the Calgary Axemen 10-3, but were hammered 13-6 later in the day by Grande Prairie.

In the Novice division, Lacoka managed one victory in four games — 9-2 over Okotoks in their last contest on July 12. The other three games saw Lacoka was edged 7-6 by Grande Prairie after compiling a pair of lopsided losses 13-1 to Wood Buffalo and 12-1 to Innisfail.
