Maple Ridge Burrards scoring sensation Curtis Dickson may have already cemented his place in the world championships.

Dickson was a standout at the Team Canada tryouts for field lacrosse. The team will play in next year’s Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) world championships.

The Port Coquitlam sniper was an offensive leader in Canada’s 14-10 exhibition win over the University of Denver in Buffalo, scoring four times in the third quarter en route to a six-goal game.

That will be no surprise to box lacrosse fans, who watched Dixon torch opposing goaltenders all year in the Western Lacrosse Association. He led the league in scoring with 58 goals and 45 assists for 103 points, despite being the focal point of opposing defenders for much of the campaign.

Other players who stood out for Canada, as reported by Inside Lacrosse, were former Coquitlam senior Adanacs John Grant Jr. and Brodie Merrill, Kevin Ross and Logan Schuss. Coquitlam senior Adanacs Matthew MacGrotty is also among the 52 players on Canada’s tryout roster.

The FIL world championships go July 11-19, 2014 in Denver.
