The Ken Gallucio Cup is the largest lacrosse tournament in Europe, according to the ELF site. Around 24 men’s and women’s teams from over 15 countries duke it out over the span of three days for European supremacy.

LCC Radotin, out of the Czech Republic, took home the women’s championship after defeating English lacrosse club Centaurs Lacrosse 13-9 in what was a tightly-fought contest, that was much like their pool play meeting in which Radotin scraped-out the 10-9 victory. English lacrosse club Poynton Lacrosse ran away with the 15-5 victory in the men’s championship over HLC Rot-Weiss München, and went virtually untouched throughout the entire tournament to claim the European championship crown. Congratulations are in order for both teams!

European lacrosse has grown substantially over the years, and the quality of play has gotten is excellent. European lacrosse teams had a great showing at the most recent FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Netanya, Israel.
