From Minor Soccer to Minor Lacrosse


By Fred Wallace

Annual Owen Sound Minor Lax Tournament This Weekend



Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".

The Owen Sound Minor Soccer Association had an eventful weekend with a variety of games, contests and fundraising events at the Kiwanis Soccer Complex.

This coming weekend, Owen Sound Minor Lacrosse gets the city spotlight as the annual Father's Day Heritage Minor Lacrosse Tournament is being staged.

The tournament, which dates back to the late 1980's, is so large in scale, it needs multiple venues inside and outside of the city in order to accommodate all the teams and all the divisions.

The Harry Lumley-Bayshore Community Centre & the JD McArthur Arena are focal point of the event with every team in every division competing to advance to Championship Sunday with the Divisional Championship games hosted there.

But from the opening faceoffs of Friday through the weekend, floor space is also utilized at the Plex in Port Elgin, the Shallow Lake & District Community Centre plus the Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre.

It's a big tournament in terms of participation, and there's no question it's a big tournament for the participants based on their reaction to the results of Sunday, all of which makes this coming weekend another big weekend for Minor Sports in Owen Sound.

I'm Fred Wallace
