Trent University Athletics welcomed the expansion of a Women's Lacrosse Program in 2013. The women's LAX team will look to build upon their first year success in 2014. 

Peterborough has been recognized as the Lacrosse capital of Canada and it is Trent's goal to make this statement true at the University level as well. Having both a men's and women's lacrosse team will give Trent a competitive edge in the LAX world and build on the great lacrosse viewership here in Peterborough. With the newly renovated stadium and grass playing fields, Trent has the facilities to make this happen.

The Trent Men's Lacrosse team is looking to continue the great success of the program in the upcoming 2014 season. Our LAX boys finished the 2013 CUFLA season with an 11-8 quarter final playoff loss to eventual semi finalist, The Queens Gaels. Great job boys!  

Trent Lacrosse has a bright future!

If you are interested in joining the Men's or Women's Lacrosse programs for the 2014 season please fill out a recruitment form on the right and a member of our coaching staff will contact you.

Men's Lacrosse Ousted from Playoffs

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Lennoxville, QC

The Men’s Lacrosse team travelled to Lennoxville, QC Saturday to take on the second ranked Bishops Gaiters at Coulter field.

It was a baumy 2 degrees at Bishops on this evening for the CUFLA east divisional playoffs. The winner would advance to the National Championship “Baggataway Cup” Nov. 7-9 in Oshawa, ON.

Trent capitalized first with a rip from senior captain Josh Gilray (Oshawa, ON). He would follow it up with an encore 4 minutes later with an assist from 5th year Niall Caravello. Bishops Ryan Dewar would make a nifty cut through the middle to pull the score to within one. Zack Wainman (Peterborough, ON) got inside on BU goalie David Bigley for a great chance but was denied. BU marched the ball down the field and Dewar would notch the game at 2. Gilray found the back of the net once again with a great feed from Junior Travis Szabolcs (Orangeville, ON). Trent would lead at the end of the final quarter 3-2.

The second quarter began with Bishops on a 2 man advantage after 2 untimely penalty calls at the end of the first quarter. BU was able to capitalize twice on the man up and would go on the outscore Trent 5-1 in the second stanza to take a 7-4 lead into the halftime.

Bishops experience showed again during the 3 quarter as they would follow up with another 5 goal performance and hold TU to zero goals.

With the game seemingly out of reach Trent began to rally. Bishops undisciplined play part way through the fourth put Trent on a multiple man advantage and were able to fire back to back goals from Senior Steve Nicholls (Peterborough, ON) and Szabolcs. Trent found the net again with another goal from Szabolcs with 9 minutes remaining. Bishops slowed the ball down looking to halt Trent’s momentum and kill the clock. With less than 3 minutes to play things got increasingly chippy as competitive tempers flared and cheapshots were taken by both sides.

“They took some cheap shots near the end of the game when they were up that didn’t need to happen and our guys took exception. It’s unfortunate, but that is the playoffs and that is the level of compete that guys are showing, everyone wants to get to the Baggataway and guys are competing hard to get there.”

Despite Trent’s late surge and great defense of holding Bishops scoreless in the fourth quarter the Gaiters would go onto win this contest by a score of 12-8.

Junior defender Brandon Armstrong (Orangeville, ON) anchored the defense being flanked by Peterborough natives Jake Venton and Cole Murduff. Graduating Senior Brett Snell (Orangeville, ON) was also very impressive on the draws.

“Our guys battled for a full 80 minutes tonight, they rode the wave a kept battling. This is a tough place to play and this young group came in and gave all they had. At the end of the day we had several bounces that did not go our way and that has been something we have dealt with throughout the season, this type of game is great experience for this core group moving forward.” Head Coach Geoff McKinley

Trent will graduate 5 players off of this team and would like to recognize Josh Gilray, Brett Snell, Niall Caravello, Steve Nichols, and Riley Thompson (Sarnia, ON) for their contributions. Caravello remains the program leader in points over his 5 years at Trent and was voted CUFLA Midfielder of the year in 2011.

With 29 players returning the future is looking bright for the TU Squad. The team would like to thank all of its supporters throughout the year and are looking forward to the 2015 edition.

Bishops will go on to face defending National Champion the Guelph Gryphons Friday November 7 in Oshawa, ON. Western will take on Queens on Friday as well. While the winners of each of those games will go on to face Brock and McGill in the respective semi-finals.
