State team captain and MVP medal winner Ben Game had a national championships tournament to remember.

Game has only been playing lacrosse for five years but comes from a long line of lacrosse players, with both his cousins playing in America at college level.

He was one of seven Bayswater Lacrosse Club players selected for the national championships and led the State team as captain.

‘I was very proud of myself,’ he said.

‘It was a great team and I think some of the other boys really look up to me.’

Despite making it to the championship final, the WA boy’s team lost to Victoria after a very close game with the interstate team breaking the tie by scoring in the last 16 seconds and recording a 13-12 win.

‘It was one of the worst feelings in the world losing to them,’ Game said.

‘There were definitely a few tears shed after the game.’

Victoria also defeated the WA girl’s team in the final, with a 17-4 win to the interstate team.
