FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The 13th Annual Allen LaFleur Tournament of Hope Red Eye took place on August 16 to the 18 in Taylor.

The event was originally started by Allen LaFleur to support a young boy battling cancer from the neighbourhood.

After the death of LaFleur a number of years ago, the Tournament was switched to a Red Eye format to allow for more teams to participate.

Winning this year’s Red Eye in the A Event was the Warriors as they beat the Chetwynd Padres.
