Ballers are national champions

Field lacross team defeats Ladner Pioners in championship game

Undefeated in four round robin games, the Whalley Ballers had little trouble winning a pair of playoff contests to claim the national field lacrosse championship last month at Winskill Park in Delta.

After placing first in the five-team round robin tournament, Whalley topped the Calgary Raiders 18-10 in a semifinal contest, then won an all-B.C. final 15-10 over the host Ladner Pioneers in a rematch of last spring’s provincial championship game. Ladner gave the Ballers the toughest test of the round robin, losing 15-14.

Goaltender Tom Johnston, midfielders Matt Leveque and Brian Poole, and face-off specialist Ian Poole were named to the tournament’s all-star team.
