Lacrosse standouts back east at national tourneys

Nick Jensen playing in his second straight Minto Cup, this time with Coquitlam Adanacs

A pair of Richmond lacrosse standouts are back east trying to win national championships.
Nick Jensen is closing out his junior career at his second straight Minto Cup championship. The B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League champion Coquitlam Adanacs entered last night’s game down 2-0 to Six Nations in a best-of-five final being played in Brampton.
The defender scored in Coquitlam’s 12-7 game one loss on Tuesday. Six Nations then took game two 9-4 on Wednesday.
Jensen was dealt to the Adanacs by the Delta Islanders at the league trade deadline in early July. Last season, he helped the Islanders win their first-ever league title by scoring in double overtime in the deciding game against Coquitlam.
Meanwhile, Dan McDermott leaves today for the President’s Cup senior “B” national championships in Six Nations.
The defender and assistant captain helped the Ladner Pioneers win their first provincial title in 10 years with a five-game series win over Royal City.
The Pioneers begin an eight game round-robin schedule on Sunday against Saskatoon. The tournament concludes with the medal games on Sept. 3.
Earlier this summer, McDermott played for England at the European Box Lacrosse Championships in Finland.
