Moose Jaw’s Williams, Seaborg off to solid start in lacrosse at Canada Summer Games

Saskatchewan battles to 4-4 tie with Manitoba, take 10-2 win over P.E.I. to open tournament

So far, so good for a trio of Moose Jaw Lacrosse Association products with Team Sask male box lacrosse at the Canada Summer Games.

Mustangs standouts Caston Seaborg and Mason Williams along with MJLAX product and current Swift Current resident Carter Michaluk are all in action with Saskatchewan at the multi-sport event in Niagara, Ont.

Team Sask opened their round robin with a 4-4 tie with Manitoba (1-0-1) Tuesday before rolling to a 10-2 victory over P.E.I (0-2) in their first game Wednesday, with a contest against New Brunswick (0-2) slated for later tonight.

Seaborg was the lone local product to hit the scoresheet in their opener, drawing an assist on Mason Luoma’s goal 7:53 into the third period. The marker gave Team Sask a 4-3 lead, but Manitoba would score to tie the game with 7:44 remaining to salvage the tie.

Manitoba led 3-2 after the first, with the game tied 3-3 through two.

Michaluk had an impressive showing in Saskatchewan’s second game, scoring the opening goal against P.E.I. only 2:08 into the proceedings and finishing with four points in the comfortable win.

Neither Williams nor Seaborg had points in the contest, which saw Team Sask take a 3-1 lead out of the first and turn it into an 8-2 edge through two.

Saskatchewan closes out their round robin against Quebec (2-0) on Thursday before turning their focus to the playoffs. After the fourth-place team from Pool A takes on the fifth-place team from Pool B, the remaining crews advance to the quarter-finals on Friday, followed by the semifinal on Saturday and consolation and medal games on Sunday.

A total of four MJLAX players are in action at the Canada Summer Games, after Mykenzie Shymko captained Team Sask to an eighth-place finish in the inaugural female box lacrosse event last week. She had six goals and an assist throughout the event.
