As the summer rolls on here in the old US of A, club lax season is in full tilt mode down in Western Australia. The Wembley Wolves continued to dominate the WA Smokefree State League and dismantled the Phoenix Lacrosse Club in their latest game. They started out pretty tight with Wembley leading 4-3 after the first quarter but things got ugly soon after as Wembley took an 11-5 lead into halftime and really poured it on in the second half with a final score of 30-6. Yes, 30 to 6, I did not e-stutter.
In Western Australia, East Fremantle has long been regarded as the top club side for men’s lacrosse. Before East Freo’s rise to prominence, Wembley Lacrosse Club was probably the top side in the WALA [Western Australia Lacrosse Assoc.] so anytime these two clubs get together for a game, the intensity and importance is guaranteed to be at the absolute highest level.
(Editors note: Let’s take a closer look at how the game is played internationally. Like he recently discussed on the LacrosseAllStars Podcast, writer Wheniwasakid has some stories to tell about living the lax life down in the land of koala bears and kangeroos )
