The Jamieson Elementary Junior Boys lacrosse team took home gold for the sixth consecutive year at the Mary Louis Memorial Six Nations District Lacrosse Tournament hosted at the I.L.A. on Thursday. The game ended 11-2 against Kawenni:io/Gawennyo Elementary School, who combined with the Everlasting Tree School.
With goals scored by Blair Green (1), Donovan Monteforte (1), Keelan Point (2), Owyn Smith (2), Dayton Sawyer (1), Brendan Anderson (3) and Kole Bomberry (1), Jamieson went undefeated with a 9 point lead. K/G returned two goals scored by Nick Johns and “Thunder.”
After defeating I.L. Thomas 9-4 and K/G 7-4, Jamieson was guaranteed a spot in the championship. By losing to Jamieson in their third game, K/G would have to defeat Jamieson with a double knock-out to obtain gold. Both teams fought hard, but the Jamieson defence re-obtained possession quickly as they hurdled ahead leading into the second period.
Tournament Coordinator and K/G Coach Russell Davis explained that the tournament was a great experience. “It was a successful tournament, everyone showed good sportsmanship,” said Davis. “The cooperation with the Everlasting Tree School helped us make it to the championships, and that was awesome.”
Davis explained that he was thankful for the many volunteers that helped make the tournament successful. “I would like to give thanks to all of the participants, all of the parents, and Kurt Styres for lending us the floor.”
