IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship
For those that don’t know, the IIJL has just wrapped up in Mississauga, ON, Canada.
Australia entered in the competition for the first time and players from Australia were invited to tryout in the age bracket of ‘U20’
Malvern representative Aaron Currie was selected for the team and went up against teams such as Canada, Iroquois, USA, Israel & Poland.
Their tournament games were:
Game 1 – Loss to Canada 24 – 4
Game 2 – Win against Israel 8 – 7
Game 3 – Loss to USA 11- 9
Game 4 – Win against Poland 19 -10
Being the first representative team, the coaching staff did well with the boys as some were very ‘green’ to the style of play.
The boys showed the typical Aussie spirit of ‘never give up’ and were well received by the organisers and other teams.
Aaron played well enough to be selected in the ‘All World 2nd Team’ as a forward, so the inside scoop tells me his parents were very proud of his efforts.
Hopefully, this is the start of an ‘ongoing’ event and all players in that age group tryout as the experience was ……. ‘amazing’ (That’s the pc version of his quote!)
Malvern would just like to thank you for representing your club and country on the big stage and hopefully, you made some friends that might like to travel ‘Down under’ for a Lacrosse holiday next year! ; )
