U17 Blaze Wins Provincial "B" Field Championship!
Burlington Blaze’s graduating U17 players' minor field lacrosse careers ended memorably with a Provincial "B" Division championship win amongst Victoria Day fireworks and under the lights at Creditview/Sandalwood park in Brampton. 

Advancing after a win and a tie in round-robin play on Sunday, and then a 12-4 semi-final win over Oakville on Monday, the U17 B final vs Barrie was scheduled for a 6:00pm start. 

 

After an intense storm, and two field moves, the game began at 8pm but was paused at halftime because of darkness. Following a wait for a field to open up with lights, the final continued under a foggy moon and with fireworks in the distance. 

 

An intense, well played, back and forth game was won at about 10:15 pm in the second sudden-death overtime when a Nolan Kennedy pass down low to Shane Zabransky ended up in the back of Barrie's net for a 12-11 win. Shane's "golden goal" was a dramatic ending to a long and exciting day of field lacrosse.
 

Led by coaches / staff members Jim Shea, Pat Shea, Josh Morton, Zach Leblanc and assisted by trainer Brett. Also a big help from guest coach Matt Anger, who subbed in for the championship weekend while members of the coaching staff were away for a wedding.
