Shout out to MAVERIK (thanks, BILLY!) for lacing us with a pair of these buttery team issue, GEORGETOWN HOYA ROME RX3 gloves. Mad light and comfy-womfy. Three words on the spot to describe this glove would be flexy, snug and soft. They fit like a glove - Pun intended. PORON XRD tech foam keeps your thumbs and index digits protected. Subtle textural differences, like a raised honey comb pattern adorn select pieces of the glove, presumably incorporated for aesthetic reasons rather than functional. Enjoy luxurious Ax SUEDE QUATTRO palms between your hands and your shaft. FLOWCOOL air vents for a cool breeze. So comfortable, they make you want to curl up and take a nap with them still on. More on these later. Possible giveaway? Follow us on social media and subscribe to our youtube channel to find out. Links are up top and to the right. Capiche

"Inside the Boards"

BOXLA analysis  - Dig in!
In my travels I was able to get up to Toronto and check out game 2 of the Ontario JR A final between Mimico and Six Nations Arrows.  After seeing the intensity and quality of play, I can’t help but think that this summer model beats the USA model of traveling all around to play in club tourneys.

The Canada model provides a higher level of competiveness and passion.  The Six Nations team was loaded with top talent, headlined by Austin Staats and Tehoka Nanicoke.  Nanicoke is scheduled to play for Albany this season, he is a total difference maker.  His size, physicality combined with the stick stills and IQ make him a dangerous player.  If you haven’t seen him look him up on YouTube. 

Staats played for OCC this past season and won a JUCO title.  If he declares eligible he would easily be a top 3 pick in the NLL Draft.  Unlike his brother Randy, the younger Staats is a crafty lefty.  His office is the half boards on the left side.  He is a deadly passer, dodger or shooter from that spot.

Goalie Doug Jamieson is already a New England Blackwolf.  Couldn’t be more impressed with his size and rebound control.

Six Nations swept the Ontario final 3-0, Mimico also qualifies for the Minto finals event this week in Brampton Ontario.  Ontario being host and gets two spots so Mimico gets a chance to redeem itself.

The ultimate in Canadian JR lacrosse is the Minto Cup, to win a team must go through provincial playoffs and then win a finals tournament.  Six Nations, Mimico will represent Ontario, Coquitlam is the British Columbia entrant, while Okotoks Raiders will be carrying banner for Alberta.  My money will be on Six Nations. 
You heard it here first!
