Returning for the 2019 season, Duch and the Shamrocks are looking to make another run for the Mann Cupp National Championship.

“I’m excited and proud to be a part of my home town team for another year,” said Duch, in a release. “Management and coaching have put together an awesome group of experience, talent, and youth that will certainly challenge for another Mann Cup.”

The two-time Western Lacrosse Association (WLA) scoring champion boasts a 4.25 points per game average and has tallied 416 goals and 507 assists in 217 regular season and playoff games with the Shamrocks. He was the WLA’s most valuable player in 2016.

In a release, the Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch said Duch is a “threat to score” every time he plays.

“When you need a goal it’s good to be able to put ‘Clutch’ Duch on the floor,” he said.

Duch joins teammates Keegan Bell, Larson Sundown, Marshal King, and Chris Boushy as the Shamrocks compete for the western championship and ultimately, look for their 10th Mann Cup win.

The national championships of Senior “A” lacrosse will be held in B.C. this year by the team that wins the WLA playoff championship.

Victoria Shamrocks 2019 season starts in May. Tickets are available at VictoriaShamrocks.com.
