    Lucas also go in a few minutes playing back-up to his big brother Noble this past season with the Red Devils. I wish both Tanner and Lucas, and their respective teams, all the best at this years’ ‘Championships’. Tanner is going to be a star in this sport and if Lucas can follow in Noble’s footsteps…he will be too. Look OUT world!!! Here comes Wallaceburg!!!
