Lacoka midget Locos are perfect in tournament en route to winning gold medal


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.
