MANN CUP PREVIEW

By Stephen Stamp-IL Indoor | Published: 9/6/2013 at 9:46:42 AM



If you were looking for fresh blood in the Mann Cup, you’ve got it. Neither the Western Lacrosse Association champion Victoria Shamrocks nor the Major Series Lacrosse titlist Six Nations Chiefs have been there in a while—it’s been since 2006 for the Shamrocks and back to 1996 for the Chiefs. Both have won their way back with deep rosters featuring strong team defence and a host of options on offence, along with outstanding goaltending. Today we take a look at the rosters and the seasons of these teams, trying to get an idea of how the series may play out. It’s always a tough call when you have teams from across the country facing each other; it’s even tougher when most of these players haven’t been to Mann Cups and haven’t played each other, as is the case this year. Make the jump to see a breakdown of the 2013 Mann Cup matchup.
