— image credit:

The preliminaries are out of the way and the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League showdown everyone expected will start Wednesday night.

The New Westminster Salmonbellies will take on the Coquitlam Adanacs in the league final. After finishing first with a 20-1-0 record, New West advanced by completing a sweep of the Delta Islanders in a best-of-five series last week.

The second-place A’s did the same by beating the visiting Victoria Shamrocks 15-9 in Game 3 of their semifinal Saturday.

That sets up a best-of-seven BCJALL final that starts at Queen’s Park Arena Wednesday starting at 8 p.m.

The series will resume Friday in Coquitlam, Saturday back in New West and Monday in Coquitlam. If further games are necessary they will be at Queen’s Park next Wednesday (July 30), in Coquitlam Aug. 1, and in New West on Sunday, Aug. 3.

The winner will play host to the Alberta champion in a best-of-five series. The Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League final is being contested between the Calgary Mountaineers and the Okotoks Raiders.

The Minto Cup will be a best-of-seven series between that winner and the Ontario champion to be held at the Langley Events Centre starting Aug. 9.
