Week four of the ALL season was a weird one as only two games were played due to inclement weather. The games that were cancelled will be made up at a later date.

Cam Milligan, F, Whitby Steelhawks

The Whitby Steelhawks lost to the St. Catherines Shockwave by a score of 14-9. Four of those nine goals for Whitby came from Cam Milligan who tallied 8 points (4G/4A). That means Milligan was a part of every Whitby goal except for one.

Thompson got the 2018-19 season off to a hot start as he helped lead Peterborough to a 13-11 victory over Six Nations on Sunday. In the win Thompson tallied 10 points (6G,4A). Thompson looks to be rolling with the Timbermen early on in his first season in the ALL.

The Arena Lacrosse League (ALL) has released their schedule for the upcoming 2018-19 season. There will be 49 regular season games with the  season opening on December 29th with the Six Nations Snipers visiting the Toronto Monarchs. The defending ALL Cup champions Whitby Steelhawks will open their season on December 29th as they take on the Paris RiverWolves. The ALL draft is usually held in December. 
For those who don’t know, the ALL is an amateur developmental box lacrosse league that plays in the winter and based in Ontario. The league started back in 2017 when CLax folded. The ALL is made up of seven teams and plays by NLL rules in everything as players must be 18 or older to play in the league. The ALL is also a pay to play league where players have to pay $350 to enter the league. The ALL is seen by many as a sort of minor league to the NLL as many current NLL players have spent time in the league. Blaze Riorden, Craig Wende, Cam Mulligan, and Mike Burke all played in the ALL last season and have now signed NLL contracts for the 2018-19 season.
