Battered, bruised, and injury-depleted the Victoria Shamrocks battled to the very end before finally succumbing to the Lakers by a score of 7-5 in the 5th and final game of the Mann Cup Finals presented by Island Savings.  With the victory, the Peterborough Lakers claimed their 3rd consecutive Mann Cup. 


Missing the likes of Jesse King, Rhys Duch, Casey Jackson, and Tyler Pace the Shamrocks certainly entered game 5 behind the eight ball.  Despite all of that, the club battled with an intestinal fortitude that many would have forgiven them if they didn't display it. The Shamrocks turned game 5 into a defensive war and it nearly worked in their effort to extend the series to the weekend.

It could be a while before Island lacrosse fans hear that familiar squeak of sneakers on the concrete floors of arenas.


The Western Lacrosse Association, which includes the Victoria Shamrocks and Nanaimo Timbermen, has joined the long list of sports leagues and events impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.


It was announced Tuesday the 2020 WLA season, set to open May 21, has been postponed.


“First and foremost, it is about following the provincial guidelines, and keeping everyone safe and well,” said Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch.

Victoria Shamrocks part ways with head coach Bob Heyes 
FEBRUARY 15, 2021 
Bob Heyes got the relationship-type ‘it’s not you, it’s us’ line in being dismissed as head coach of the Victoria Shamrocks after eight winning seasons and four Western Lacrosse Association championships. 
“Bob has done a great job but it was time for a change,” said GM Chris Welch. 
“Eight years is a long run for a head coach in our league and we felt the time was right for a change. It’s just a reality of coaching in sports that it is a temporary job, and every coach will eventually run their course with a team. I feel we have reached that point.”
