Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
It's been a pretty good week for lacrosse at a number of levels.
Probably the biggest news came down the pipe on Tuesday when the Toronto Rock of the NLL acquired Owen Sound native Adam Jones from the Saskatchewan Rush in exchange for 2 first round draft picks.
Jones who is approaching his 28th birthday this month, has had a storied lacrosse career beginning in Owen Sound Minor Lacrosse and stretching to every conceivable corner of the sport.
Meanwhile, the Owen Sound Senior NorthStars will suit up tonight and attempt to finish the Oakville Titans in the Ontario Senior Lacrosse Semifinal.
With back to back wins last weekend, the Senior NorthStars lead the best of 5; 2-0 and can advance to the Championship Final with a victory on home floor tonight.
Game time is 8:30 this evening at the JD McArthur Arena.
And finally, circling back to Owen Sound Minor Lacrosse, they announced their rep awards and recognition night will be staged on August 17th at the Harry Lumley-Bayshore Community Centre.
Have a great weekend.
I'm Fred Wallace
