Let's Go A's
Legacy, Tradition, Family
The hopes of a Minto Cup in 2019 came to a sudden end last night as the A's dropped an 8-5 decision to the Burlington Chiefs in front of a season high crowd of 734 fans at the Jack #PackTheJack.
A's got behind 5-3 going into the third frame but there were no more miracle comebacks left in the tank as the Chiefs secured the win with a stingy defence and solid goal-tending from Drew Hutchinson.
Brayden Mayea led the A's in scoring picking up 2 markers on the night while Tyler Brown scored the most points with 3 helpers in the losing cause.
The boys in Double Blue had high hopes for a championship season in 2019 but as the season's team mantra #EarnedNotGiven indicates, Championships have to be earned and this year the A's came up short.
It will be extra difficult for our graduating players as they won't have a chance to wear the Double Blue again as they move on in their lacrosse careers in the Pros and Senior leagues.
Good luck to all our graduating players of 2019.
Thank you to all of of great sponsors, volunteers, supporters and our dedicated fans!. St.Catharines had the best attendance in the OJALL and most vocal supporters in the league!!
Good Luck to Burlington Chiefs as they face off against the Orangeville Northmen in the OJALL final. May the best team win and bring back the Minto Cup to Ontario in 2019.
