The Toronto Beaches Junior A lacrosse team hosts its home opener tonight (Thursday, May 23) at Ted Reeve Arena.
The team plays in the Ontario Junior A Lacrosse League (OJALL).
Coached by Glenn Clark, Toronto Beaches has a 1-1 record after opening the season with a pair of road games.
Toronto’s first game was against Kitchener-Waterloo on May 16, and the Beaches boys came home with a 10-5 win.
In their second game on May 21, the Toronto Beaches played in Whitby and were on the wrong end of a 11-6 decision.
Tonight’s home opener will be a rematch against that same Whitby team.
Start time for the game is 8 p.m. at Ted Reeve Arena, 175 Main St. at Gerrard Street.
There are 12 teams in the OJALL loop this year, and they will all be competing for a chance to win the coveted Minto Cup which is awarded to the Canadian Junior A lacrosse champs.
