Don't miss your chance to cheer on your Lakers as they will play 2 games on Monday. At 11am, the Thunder Bay Kings will be welcomed to town by the Lakers. At 7pm the Opening Ceremonies will take place followed by a spirited tilt between League Rivals as the Lakers will face the Alliance Champion Elgin Middlesex Chiefs. It was the Chiefs that eliminated the Lakers in the Alliance Semi-Finals so payback will be on the minds of our players!
