Burnaby Laker To Retire First Ever Jersey
The Burnaby Lakers Senior A Lacrosse Club is very pleased to announce that it will retire the jersey of
former Laker star and future hall of famer, Russ Heard, in July, 2013. The retirement ceremony will take place at 7:45 pm on July 5th just prior to the start of the game against
the Lakers’ cross town rivals, the New Westminster Salmonbellies
Russ Heard was a key member of the Burnaby Lakers (and their predecessor team, Richmond Outlaws, from 1986 to 1998 where he played 312 of his 399 Senior A career games. As a player with the Lakers, he scored an amazing 358 goals and 938 points in total. Russ retired from playing Senior A Lacrosse in
2000 but still plays the game he loves at the Masters level.
This is the very first jersey retirement in the 25 year history of the Lakers and we are expecting a large
turnout for this important occasion. To ensure that the evening is affordable by all Laker fans, a special
admission price of two for the price of one will be offered to adults.
All lacrosse players under the age of
19 will be admitted at no charge if they wear their team jersey (regardless of which club).
In addition, the Lakers will be hosting a salmon BBQ before the game for a very low price of $8.00 per
plate (salmon/green salad/dinner bun).
Russ is a great supporter of minor lacrosse so it is only fitting that the retirement ceremony will be held
the same weekend as the annual Jack Crosby All Star Novice Tournament. We expect many of the
novice teams from out of town to take in the ceremony and the game afterwards.
Please come and join us for this special night at Bill Copeland Arena, 3676 Kensington Ave, Burnaby.

2013 North Shore Ice Breaker
The 8th annual Ice Breaker kicked off the box lacrosse season this Easter weekend with some new faces and exciting action.
In the "B" division the Vancouver Justice were looking to defend their title from last year but had to face the new entry of the Burnaby Firefighters. After a day of round robin games it was the South Fraser Stickmen who ended up on top after pulling a big win over the Firefighters setting up a Gold medal rematch while the Poco Saints would battle the Justice for Bronze.
On Saturday the Saints put together their A game and came out hot defeating the Justice and capturing the Bronze medal. Later Burnaby battled the Stickmen in a back and forth hard fought and controversial game. The Stickmen came within one with a minute left but failed to match the Firefighters who won the Gold in their first outing as a masters team.
In the "A" division the new team this year was the New West O'Keefs, a scattered collection of the old Bellies Minto championship team. Despite the slow start they finished strong winning the Bronze medal in the "A" flight with a strong performance over the Cowboys. In the gold game it was an old rematch between the Burnaby Coasters and the Ladner Pioneers.
All teams competing in the BC Masters year end tournament will be charged $5 on top of their registration fee starting in 2012 as a web hosting and maintenance fee. Thank you very much for this approved motion from the 2011 AGM.
