The Year in Lacrosse







  • The Vancouver Athletic Club defeated the Calgary Chinooks and Brampton Excelsiors in Mann Cup challenge matches, but the Mann Cup Trustees disputed the status of one of the Vancouver players and refused to recognize the Vancouver team and awarded the championship to the Chinooks. However, Vancouver refused to turn the cup over to either the trustees or the Calgary side. 
  • Several years later (After the Mann Cup was turned over to the control of the Canadian Lacrosse Association in 1926) all references to the Calgary Chinooks title were removed from the recordsand and the  opinions of the national lacrosse , amateur athletic organizations, and the BCLA bodies (that had all supported Vanocuver's position at the time of the wins ) prevailed and the VAC is formally recognized as the winner of the series - their 4th consecutive Mann Cup.
