The Airdrie Mohawks of the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League have claimed their sixth straight Senior C Provincial Championship.
The Mohawks completed the job beating Edmonton Sr. C Warriors 10-5 in the championship game.
Gareth Barley, Head Coach of the Mohawks is proud of how the team overcame some adversity this year.
"It's nice to keep the tradition going, this year was very competitive, especially in the South Division, nothing can be taken for granted like we could have in years past."
The Mohawks finished the regular season beating the Calgary Bears to claim first place in the division with a 12-2 record. The Mohawks would then play the Bears again in the South Division Final but would defeat them two games to zero.
"The Bears put together a really good lineup this year and it shows. Our record against them was two and two heading into the playoffs."
Now slowly becoming an older team, Barley mentioned the Mohawks hope to get at least one more competitive year.
"A lot of us are in our 40s and getting older, you're not sore for one day, you're sore for two or three days after a game. Right now the talk in the room is staying competitive for one more year."
While the season is officially over this year, Barley does hope next year if they win again, they can have a bit of a longer season and try to host the National Championship at the senior C level.
"That's something we've been trying to do for years, I think we're going to make one more run at it and try to bring it to Airdrie."
The Mohawks will try to make it seven in a row provincial titles next year!
