The Vancouver Stealth have proudly been named a co-presenting sponsor of the 2013 Minto Cup which will be held at Queens Park Arena in New Westminster, BC. The tournament will run from August 17-26, and will feature the Coquitlam Adanacs (BC Champions), the New Westminster Salmonbellies (BC Hosts), the Whitby Warriors (Ontario Champions) and the Okotoks Raiders (Alberta Champions).
Lacrosse has definitely become more popular across Canada in recent years and in particular, in the province of BC. With the 2013 Minto Cup coming to BC starting this weekend (August 17), Stealth President and GM, Doug Locker is excited to have the Stealth organization involved,
“We are thrilled to be a co-presenting sponsor of the 2013 Minto Cup to be held at Queens Park Arena. As an organization, the Vancouver Stealth is proud to support this great event and the continued growth of the game in the province.”
The Stealth has one player and one coach competing in the tournament. Tyler Garrison Captains the Coquitlam Adanacs and Dan Perreault who is an Assistant Coach with the Stealth and the Head Coach of the Salmonbellies.
The winning team will be crowned National Champions of Junior A Lacrosse, but it is a long road to the final and Doug Locker expects the competition level to be high,
“This year’s Minto Cup will be especially exciting with four outstanding teams battling for this year’s championship.”
Tournament play starts this Saturday (August 17) with the first two matches set, as Whitby takes on the host team from New Westminster at 5pm, followed by the Okotoks and Adanacs at 8pm.
