The Calgary Shamrocks are Founders’ Cup champions! The Shamrocks built a five-goal advantage during the championship match, and would hold on to defeat the Six Nations Rebels 16-15.
It is the first time in ten years (Calgary Mountaineers in 2009) a team outside of Ontario captured the gold medal.
The gold medal capped off an incredible season for the Calgary Shamrocks who won the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League South Division title with a 19-1-0 regular season. Calgary would go on to win the Larry Bishop Memorial Trophy league championship, as well as sweeping the best-of-three Alberta Provincials.
