North Okanagan Legends dominate Burnaby lacrosse event

Novice team goes 7-0, outscoring opponents 61-7, at Jack Crosby All-Star Tournament

North Okanagan Legends had a legendary weekend to wrap up their minor lacrosse season.

The organization combined the top players from its two Novice Division teams to form a select squad that would compete at the Jack Crosby All-Star Tournament earlier in July in Burnaby.

The Legends won all seven games to capture the gold medal, scoring 61 goals in the seven games and allowing only seven against, an average of one per game.

The players sent thanks to the coaches and parents for a great weekend, and were recognized at the Vernon Tigers’ Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League semifinal match against the South Okanagan Flames.
