AK­WE­SASNE, On­tario – Ak­we­sasne A`nowara`ko:wa Arena hosted the lacrosse Founders Cup ear­lier this month. Eight teams de­scended on the re­gion to com­pete.

“We stepped up to host when Seneca could not longer host it,” said Bon­nie Ruest, one of the event or­ga­niz­ers. “We are re­ally happy with the re­sponse and the vol­un­teers who have stepped up.”

Ruest said that she had heard a lot of pos­i­tive feed­back around the tour­na­ment.

“Ak­we­sasne has a rich his­tory in lacrosse and is po­si­tioned to host a suc­cess­ful tour­na­ment,” she said. “The feed­back we’ve re­ceived has all been pos­i­tive.”

At the end of the tour­na­ment the Elora Mo­hawks took home the gold, the Seneca War Chiefs won sil­ver, Co­quit­lam Adanacs took bronze and the Cal­gary Sham­rocks won Tier II.
