On this week’s edition of Lacrosse Classified, we discuss an amazing end to this week’s Founders Cup and hand out our Stampede Tack Weekly Report Cards, as Andrew McBride and Jason Crook join us on the show. Jumbo can’t discuss Evan’s photo from the 2006 world championships without laughing.
Andrew McBride, Jason Crook
Our first guest is the general manager of the Okotoks Raiders and assistant coach of the Colorado Mammoth, Andrew McBride. We discuss the Raiders recent success at the Minto — where they will face the Victoria Shamrocks in the semifinal tonight — as well as the hard road the Raiders had to take to get there. The Raiders are making their second semifinal appearance in a row at the Minto Cup.
Our second guest is Jason Crook, the head coach, general manager and team president — and whatever else he can cram in to his busy schedule — of the Calgary Jr. B Shamrocks. The Shamrocks won the Founders Cup over the Six Nations Rebels 16-15 in a nail-biter, after losing to the Rebels 19-3 the day before. It marks the first time in 10 years, and only the fourth time ever, the Founders Cup was not won by a team from Ontario.
Then, we wrap things up with another round of Stampede Tack #WhoYaGott, where Evan has taken a two-game lead over Jake. We hand out another hat from the fans playing along in #WhoYaGott, some news and notes, and how important are 5th and 6th round picks are in the NLL.
Then, feast your ears on our all-NLL late round team.
