FLORIDA — The Six Nations Thundertribe U-17’s added to their growing list of championship titles by defeating all-comers at the I.M.G. National Field Lacrosse Championships held in Sarasota, Florida between Nov. 23rd and 24th.

The Tribe won all five games on their way to the championship, by scoring 15 goals in the first game and 14 goals in the last four.

“We should have gone to the roulette table at the casino and put money on #14,” laughed coach Willy Skye. “We took it as a good sign when this Bald Eagle landed on a light pole right over our heads.”

The tournament opened with a 15-4 win over the Georgia Copperheads, which was followed by a 14-4 win over the Columbus Ohio Blackjack Elites, and a 14-2 win over the Ponte Verda Possums of Orlando Florida.

The Tribe shut down the Blackjack Elites 14-0 in the semi-final game before taking the title with a 14-4 win over the West Cobb Chargers of Georgia.

In six tournaments so far this year, the Thundertribe have gone undefeated in attaining six championships. And it doesn’t end here. On December 29, 20, 31, the Tribe will defend their class Championship from last year at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions, to be played in Wesley Chapel, Florida.

As if that wasn’t enough, their impressive performance at the I.M.G. Nationals this year earned the entire team an invitation to the I.M.G. Sports Academy in Florida for one full week of intensive lacrosse training, plus a personal invitation by organizers of the U-17 World games next July in Denver Colorado.
