You might not have heard of Bob Watson.
He’s an Ontario police officer with the Waterloo Police Service.
On Sunday, he finished his athletic career in sports as the greatest goaltender in the history of lacrosse.
The Toronto Rock defeated the Washington Stealth 8-7 in the Champion’s Cup Final. For the second time of his career, Watson that was named Champion’s Cup MVP.
It was also Watson’s sixth Champion’s Cup, having previously won in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2005.
On Sunday, the Rock dominated the first half, while the Stealth dominated the second. In the end, Toronto hung on to win by a single point.
The Rock were significantly faster in their transition to offense than the Stealth, especially in the first half, where they took a 7-1 lead.
Washington roared back to pull within one, when the Rock got a critical insurance goal by Stephan Leblanc to put Toronto up by two.
Toronto had revenge on their side as it was Washington that defeated them to win the 2010 Champion’s Cup in Everett, Washington last year.
