The Midwest Cities Lacrosse Conference (MCLC) regular season has come to an end for the Minnesota Lakers with only the post-season tournament yet to be played on June 21-22. After a 5-1 spring season, the Lakers will be the top-seed in the tournament.
This summer the club will also compete in the Lavin League, a five-team made up of two MCLC clubs (Minnesota Premium is the other) and three MCLA college clubs (Minnesota Gophers, Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs and St. John’s Johnnies). UMD (Division 1) and SJU (Division 2) recently won the UMLC tournament championships to advance into the MCLA National Tournament. The Johnnies made a run all the way to the championship game, coming up short 12-11 against Grand Valley State.
The summer league will be played on Monday nights through August 11 with all games being held at Hopkins High School.
After a Week 1 bye, the Lakers opened play in the Lavin League on June 9 against St. John’s and came away with a 17-10 victory. The club will next take the field on June 16 against the Minnesota Gophers. Game time is scheduled for 7 PM.
