The Nanaimo Timbermen came ever so close to bringing BC its first Presidents' Cup since 2004, but it was the 2016 and 2017 champion St. Albert Miners who came away with a 10-8 overtime win to claim the top prize in senior B lacrosse Sunday September 2nd. It was the first time since 2009 that a team from BC played in the national championship gold medal game.
The tournament host and Provincial Senior B Lacrosse Champion Timbermen went 5-2 in round-robin play and then defeated the Oakville Titans 10-3 in its semi-final match to move on to final, played in front of a big crowd at Frank Crane Arena.
The Nanaimo Timbermen are the 2018 WCSLA and Provincial Senior B Lacrosse Champions after defeating the 2017 champion Ladner Pioneers two games to one in the best-of-three final series. Nanaimo rallied after dropping Game 1 to win both Games 2 and 3 in overtime to claim the crown.
The Timbermen, as regular season champions, earned a bye to the semi finals and knocked out the Victoria Wolves 3-1, who swept the Langley Warriors 2-0 in their quarter final series. The second place Pioneers also earned a bye to the semi finals and proceeded to sweep the Coquitlam Adanacs, who edged out the Royal City Capitals 2-1 in their quarter final series, 3-0 to advance to the league finals.
The Timbermen now go on to host the 2018 Presidents' Cup, with the Pioneers also taking part in the tournament, representing BC.
