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.
The A's pick up a big road win in Game 5 of the OJALL Semifinal series with a 7-6 defeat of the Burlington Chiefs on their home floor.
Sniper Jake McNabb had a huge, clutch performance picking up 6 points (3 G and 3A) including the game winning goal with only a minute to play in the third period.
Brayden Mayea also contributed 4 points in the win including 2 goals and 2 assists
The win forces Game 6 back home in St.Catharines on Sunday night with a 7:00pm start at the Jack #PackTheJack
Come out Sunday and cheer on the boys as they continue to try and make the epic series comeback!
Be Loud, Be Proud and Let's make some noise........Let's Go DoubleBlue!!!!

Let's Go A's!
Prior to the start of last night's Game 4 playoff game, the A's welcomed new sponsor Meridian Credit Union to our family of supporters.
Meridian representatives Miranda Walorny and Jordan Houtby were on hand for the ceremonial ball drop with Captains Latrell Harris of the A's and Callum Jones of the Chiefs.
Thank you Meridian for joining our Jr. A Lacrosse Family!

A's dropped Game 4 of the OJALL semifinal series against the Burlington with a 9-6 loss to the Chiefs at the Jack.
With the loss, the A's fall behind 3-1 in the Best of 7 series and now will need to win 3 straight to advance into the finals.
Kealan Pilon, back from missing Game 3 due to injury, led the way for the A's picking up 5 points on 1 goal and 4 assists in the losing cause.
Sniper Jake McNabb continued his torrid scoring pace picking up two goals and now leads the league in scoring in the post season with 21 goals.
A's will travel down the road to Burlington for Game 5 with an 8:00pm start at Central arena where the Double Blue will try to stave off elimination and come back home for Game 6 at the Jack.
