The Commissioner assesses a $1500.00 fine to the Victoria Shamrocks Lacrosse Club for failure to control the bench.
During the game a number of items were thrown from the Victoria Shamrocks players’ bench. Some of these landed in the Maple Ridge players’ bench, and one item, a water bottle, struck a young fan behind the Victoria bench.
After conversation with several persons in the area of the incident, there is at this time no clear identification of the person or persons who threw the items.
In the absence of this information, the fine of $1500.00 has been set.
Notes: The WLA Governors have placed top priority on protecting the safety of all persons involved in WLA events. The WLA Suspension Guidelines addresses the issue of players and bench personnel interacting with fans and lays out appropriate disciplinary action.
