June 21, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – The Victoria Blazers were on a mission Thursday night as the league’s 2 top teams faced off to decide the VSLL Championship Title for 2013. 

The Blazers went up against the Jokers last night at the Archie Browning Centre and came up with a 14 -10 Victory over the Jokers for their first VSLL Championship Title.  It would be a hard fight with both teams looking for the ultimate Victory, but there could only be one Victor. 

Although the Jokers earned their place in the championship game with an 11-10 victory over the defending champion Firefighters, they were no match for the Blazers fight and determination Thursday night.  The Blazers brought their “A” game, keeping Colin Bell at bay and working the floor like a well oiled machine.

Congratulations to the Victoria Blazers – VSLL Champions!
