Jensen helps Canada West capture inaugural U19 World Lacrosse Challenge

Richmond’s Nick Jensen has helped Canada West capture the inaugural U19 World Lacrosse Challenge, hosted by Six Nations in Ontario.
The 12-team event featured Germany, Czech Republic, United States, Scandinavia, Squamish, the CLAX all-stars, two Canadian regional squads and three Iroquois Nations teams.
The Canada West entry included talent from B.C. Alberta and Saskatchewan. 
Jensen was joined on the roster by Burnaby Lakers Junior “A” teammate Tyler Vogrig, while Greg Rennie of the Delta Junior “A” Islanders looked after the coaching duties. All three were at one-time part of the Richmond Roadrunners Intermediate “A” program.
Canada West went 4-0 in round-robin play with wins over Scandinavia, Iroquois Seneca (New York), Germany and Iroquois East.
 A shootout was required to break a three-way deadlock and Jensen and Vogrig both converted their attempts to help send Canada West off to semi-finals.
The run was complete with a 10-3 triumph over the United States and a 5-4 victory against the CLAX all-stars in the championship game.
The tournament served as a prelude to the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships which starts Friday and runs until Sept. 27 in Syracuse and Onondaga.
