Lakers Sign Evans and Three Others

Peterborough, ON- The Peterborough Lakers sponsored by Doughty Masonry have re-signed four key players from last years Mann Cup championship. Major Series Lacrosse scoring champion, for the past two years, Scott Evans headlines the signings. Also re-signed are Captain Jason Clark and Assistant Captains Mat Giles and Scott Self.

Scott Evans led Major Series Lacrosse for the two past seasons in point total. Evans was the third highest scorer on the National Lacrosse League’s Rochester Knighthawks this winter with 70 points. Evans has been a vital part of the Peterborough Lakers since his rookie season in 2003.

Evans is often unnoticed due to the star cast the Lakers put together each season, but his contributions on the floor speak for themselves. He is a pure goal scorer, a playmaker and he’s not afraid to fight either. Scott is definitely a fan favorite in Peterborough. Scott is a player who is always willing to sign an autograph for a fan. He is devoted to his fans as much as they are devoted to him. Not to mention back to back 90+ point seasons that have turned him into one of the biggest names in the sport of lacrosse.

The Lakers are pleased to have Scott Self back in the lineup.
