If you missed the exciting fun of the Round One of the Second Annual Rock, Paper, Scissors Fundraising Tournament, here is a quick recap:
As each team battled for the notoriety of being the best this round, three teams (Some Kids, Misfits and Just Smoked Salmon) struggled to keep up with the two top contenders; Kool Kids and PWDT. The last two teams standing were the Kool Kids and last year’s tournament champions – PWDT. These two powerhouse teams played two back-to-back rounds – each winning one round. In order to break the tie, theyhad to choose a player to face off in a sudden death match. The pressure was on!
Stepping up for The Kool Kids’ team was their powerhouse player, Shailah. PWDT chose their ‘anchor’ player, Jonas. With fierce determination, these two challengers stepped forward with the full pressure of their team at their backs. Every eye in the place was on them, especially the hawk-eyed refs, waiting to see who would come out on top. To further add to the pressure, the PWDT coach offered a $200 donation to the NOPYL: if the girls won, they would get to help determine how this donation would best benefit the lacrosse program. If PWDT won, they would get the honor of presenting the donation to the kids at an official game.
With the pressure on, the two competitors stepped to center stage waiting for the sound of the ref’s booming voice; ‘one, two, three, shoot’. With several quick ties, it was finally Shailah who lead her team to victory! The crowd roared in approval of this win, and the Kool Kids basked in their victory. Meanwhile, Jonas bowed his head, accepting defeat.
We would like to thank everyone who showed up to support this fundraising opportunity. A special thanks goes out to those who donated items for the raffle. We would like to especially thank Peninsula Bottling Company for their generous donations and participation.
The second round will be held during the first week of June. All winners will go to the Final Round. If you are interested in participating in the next round, all you need is a total of four players, a name and a donation of $25.00 per player/$100 per team. All funds go to support the NOPYL. You can email, call or simply show up and sign up at the next event.
We look forward to seeing you there!

The event is open to all and team entries are ages 12+.
Don’t miss this wild event! BarN9NE is located at 229 W. First St. Port Angeles.

Tomorrow’s game will be played at Agnew Field (The practice field) NOT Carrie Blake.
Players will be expected to show up at the same time as previously discussed (3:45)
Saturday’s game location TBA. Game starts at 2. Show up early as discussed with coach Dave.
A great way to volunteer and learn more about this game is by helping out. If you are interested in learning more and/or would like to volunteer to be a time keeper or score keeper, please contact Sharon Prosser. We need three for each game/team. This is an important job, as we are the “official” record when we are playing home games. You are needed!
Also, we need sideline managers; the basic job description for a sideline manager is crowd control. It is with your help to make sure that the fans are not too rowdy (as we can occur penalties for fans being “too” excited.) As well as making sure that the fans stay outside the set borders of the playing field. Please contact your teams coach if you would like more information or to volunteer for this position.
Thank you for your volunteer time.
All the team schedules are now available online. We will keep these schedules as up to date as possible. Any last minute changes (we all know they happen) you will be contacted by either the team managers, team captains, team parent or coaches.
We are off to a great season start with 20 HS players, 20 MS players and 12 girls; this is the minimum required for a girls team, so if you know of any one who would be interested to play, it is never to late; just have them register online or contact one of the coaches.
Also, we are excited to announce that we have a 5/6 boys team for the first time; if you know any one who wants to try out this great sport in that age range, please contact Coach Jim Deckman.
We are looking to build both HS and a younger girls lacrosse teams; so again, if you know of anyone in this age bracket who would be interest in learning more or being a part of this great sport program, give them the website address or contact the coaches or invite them to a game so they can see first hand how the game is played!
