Chilliwack’s Zack Porter the top rookie for Vancouver Warriors

The National Lacrosse League team recognized the Chilliwack Mustangs grad with a team award.

Chilliwack’s Zack Porter has been named Rookie of the Year for the National Lacrosse League’s Vancouver Warriors.

The NLL team wrapped up its season Friday with a 15-9 loss to the Toronto Rock at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

Porter, a Chilliwack Mustangs alum, didn’t play in the season finale, but logged 15 games during the regular season. The five-foot-eight and 175 pound righty defender produced two goals, four points and 21 penalty minutes.

The 26 year old shared the floor with a familiar face as older brother Colton Porter also enjoyed a successful season the Vancouver D.

Colton, 28, dressed for all 18 regular season games, collecting two goals, eight points and 25 penalty minutes.

He too is a graduate of the Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse program.

Both brothers played junior lacrosse with the Langley Thunder and both played summer-league lacrosse with the Maple Ridge Burrards, appearing in two Mann Cup senior box-lacrosse nationals.

Unfortunately, their Warriors didn’t make the playoffs this season, finishing 5-13 and last in the West division standings.
