We’re on the hunt for three titles.
The Junior Roughnecks are in Oakville, Ontario, this week to participate in the sixth-annual Junior NLL Tournament at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre.
The event runs Aug. 24-26.
Our Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget teams will be joined by squads from the Buffalo Bandits, Colorado Mammoth, Georgia Swarm, New England Black Wolves, Rochester Knighthawks, Saskatchewan Rush, Toronto Rock, Vancouver Stealth and Junior Edmonton.
“We are excited to once again be competing at the Junior NLL tournament in Oakville this year,” said Roughnecks GM Mike Board. “The players, coaches, volunteers and parents have put in a lot of time and effort to be ready for the event and we wish all three teams the best of luck.
“We look forward to everyone playing lacrosse, learning more about the game and representing the Roughnecks, while meeting new friends throughout the tournament.”
Last year, the Junior Roughnecks Midget team beat the Junior Rock 7-5 to earn gold.
The Bantams will play four round-robin games over the weekend, with the potential of two playoff games, dependent on their record. The other two divisions will play three games with the potential for two playoff tilts.
