Scots snatch top pop lacrosse title

By Laura Taylor, Jun 27 2019 03:28PM


A Scottish school saw off the best of their British opponents to be crowned winners of the 2019 National Pop Lacrosse U11 Championships in Sheffield.


Strathblane Primary School, near Glasgow, defeated Hampshire’s Kingscourt School 12-9 in a hard-fought final to take the trophy north of the border.


After topping their pool, Strathblane pipped Honeywell Junior School 11-10 in the quarter finals and St Peter’s Primary School 11-7 semi-final

.

Last year’s champions, Hale Prep School, from Altrincham, were looking for a sixth title in seven years but were unable to get past Kingscourt in their semi-final, losing 10-6.


Twenty one teams travelled to Sheffield’s English Institute of Sport for the finals after qualifying through their respective regional tournaments earlier in the year.
