Northmen Jr B
The game of lacrosse is steeped deeply in the historical past of this community, dating back to the 1860's. They resurrected the Jr. "B" Northmen in 1989. The team consisted of local players who had finished their minor years. Being a first year team, expectations were not that high but with the support of this community, and some tremendous "Northmen" pride they went on to capture the Canadian Jr. "B" championship (Founders Cup). To prove to any detractors that this was not a fairy tale season, they repeated this feat the following year. The fan support is the first thing that impresses most visitors to Orangeville. The Orangeville Northmen are a great source of pride for our community, not only because they are winning teams but the strength of this organization and sense of family it envelopes everyone involved.
MacMaster Buick GMC has been a proud sponsor of the Jr B Northmen for over 20 years. In addition, we have happily employed many past and current players.
