It’s all over but the crying, and the celebrations. At least we figure that’s what’s going on in Orangeville after the Northmen clinched the 2012 Minto Cup. It’s the third Minto title in 5 seasons for the Northmen, who put on a dominant display of lacrosse en route to the championship. They clinched the Cup with Saturday’s win over the Coquitlam Adanacs, and ILIndoor was fortunate to have photographer Tim Prothero of VintageLax.com provide images from the tournament, which we proudly share with the lacrosse community. For your viewing pleasure, after the jump.
