Acme Timbermen B.C.'s best at Cup

The Nanaimo Acme Timbermen were competitive at the Presidents’ Cup, but weren’t in the championship hunt.

The Acme Painting T-men senior B lacrosse team went 2-4 at the week-long tourney at the end of last month in Coquitlam to finish fifth of seven teams.

Nanaimo defeated the host Tri-City Bandits 8-5 on Aug. 25 to start the tourney and also beat the Akwesasne Outlawz 8-3 on Aug. 27.

Steve Higgs was Nanaimo’s leading scorer at the tournament with nine goals and 15 points and he was selected as a second-team all-star.

The Onondaga Redhawks are 2014 Presidents’ Cup national champions after defeating the Six Nations Rivermen 9-7 in Sunday’s final.
