Lacoka midgets were in the Baggataway Memorial Tournament hosted in St. Albert, June 10 to 12. It was an exciting weekend of lacrosse.
Their first game, Lacoka played Westlock, winning 7-0. On Saturday, the Locos played Edmonton and again won, 7-2. On Sunday the team made up of Ponoka and Lacombe Midgets played the host team, St. Albert, winning 10-4.
The win meant Lacoka was off to the gold medal final against a team they face in their regular league play, the Red Deer 1 squad. Red Deer 1 has given Lacoka some problems throughout the season but the Locos pulled ahead when it counted the most, winning gold by a final score of 6-5.
The gold is one notch better than the silver the Locos picked up in Wainwright earlier in the season and now the team is gearing up for playoffs.
