Congratulations to our JDF Bantam B2 team for coming in 1st place and bringing home Gold from the Hyack Tournament in New Westminster. These boys put it all on the floor each game winning 5 of 6 games over 3 days. Sweet victory came when they won over POCO in the final, a team who barely beat JDF in the round robin. Great job boys !

Local Celebrity Steve Duffy tells the story of how he became the MC:
Steve Duffy’s Sports Comment For Tuesday, May 20th, 2014
May 20, 2014 7:58 AM from Steve Duffy
While my family and I were holidaying in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, name-dropping here, we received a Facebook message from Victoria. It basically asked if I’d like to MC a special lacrosse game when we got back.

Well, it took me all of about 1.47 seconds to reply that I’d love to. The game in question was a ‘first.’ The Victoria Day Lacrosse Showdown was billed as Stars of the Past versus Stars of the Future. In this case, it was the Juan de Fuca Midget ‘A’ boys taking on the Victoria Shamrocks Alumni.

Let me say something about these Midget A boys, who are mostly 15 and 16 years old. I took in part of their game on Sunday against arch-rival Saanich. And these kids have a ton of talent already. Watching them play, I almost forgot how young they are, they are THAT good!

And they’re very competitive. They were playing against some legends of the game, and were visibly downhearted when they lost 13-5.

I say to these young men, hold your heads up high, you put on a great show against some of the best who ever played the game.

And what a treat to see the likes of Grant Hamilton, Bill Marachek, Rick Brown, Alton Davis, Marty O’Neill and many others. Involved in the coaching were Tyson Leies and Dave Bremner. For me, it was a huge honour to announce this game, which the organizers say they hope is the first of many. So my many thanks, in particular, to Christine Campbell, for asking me.

It also reminds me that the defending Western Lacrosse Association champion Shamrocks open their 2014 season tonight, in Nanaimo. They’ll then play their home opener this Friday, against those same Timbermen, in Colwood.

I know where I’m going to be that night, and you should be there, too. It’s top-notch entertainment, featuring the best in the world.

That’s my Sports Comment. I’m Steve Duffy.
