The Langley Minor Box and Field Lacrosse associations have a little more money to operate this season thanks to 50/50 draws.

The association will receive $9,476, which was raised at the six games of the Minto Cup championships held at the Langley Events Centre last week.

The Canadian junior A championship ran Aug. 16 to 23 with Ontario champion Six Nations Arrows defeating B.C. champion Coquitlam Adanacs four games to two.

“We’re honoured and privileged that the Langley Events Centre thought enough of us to include us,” said Langley Minor Lacrosse Box president Brock Rose.

“I can’t speak enough of the people that made the event possible and we were fortunate enough to be a part of it.”

In total, 9,516 people came through the doors of the LEC over the course of the week. That works out to an average of 1,586 fans per game.

An additional 1,787 watched the action online during the series, which is nearly 300 fans per game.
