Lee, Alberta finish fourth at lacrosse nationals

It’s been a summer to remember for Isaac Lee of Erskine.

It’s been a summer to remember for Isaac Lee of Erskine. As part of Team Alberta, Lee earned a fourth-place finish at the Canadian Warrior peewee lacrosse championship this month in Whitby, Ont.

In the bronze-medal contest, Alberta lost 8-2 to perennial lacrosse powerhouse British Columbia.

The team’s fourth-place finish was bittersweet for Alberta, which had upset silver-medallist Iroquois in round-robin play.

At the end of round-robin, B.C., Alberta and Iroquois each sported 6-2 records. After a points-forand-against formula broke the tie, Alberta missed playing in the semifinals by just three points. Iroquois defeated B.C. to move on to the gold-medal game.

Ontario took home gold.

Lee had a strong showing at the national tournament, with two goals and four assists. He was a first-line penalty-killer, and his coaches noted his development as a defensive player.

Alberta’s game of the tournament was a comeback win over Iroquois, as Lee scored the tying goal.
