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.
