#19 Cliff Sepka
Sepka, too, ended his playing life after the 1968 season, but with a great deal more glitter. As playing-coach, Cliff led his Salmonbellies to the National Lacrosse Association professional championship with an upset four-games-to-two series win over Detroit. He used himself sparingly throughout the season, managing just 29 points in 21 games; but, during playoff wins over Vancouver, Portland and Detroit, Cliff came through with 54 points in 18 games and was named the most valuable player in the New Westminster-Detroit finals.
Cliff scored his first point (a goal) on May 1, 1954 in a 14-11 loss to Nanaimo and his last point (also a goal) in the final 22-14 victory over Detroit. Altogether, he totaled 746 goals and 581 assists for 1,327 points in 484 games and was, at the time of his retirement, the all-time scoring leader in Western Canadian senior lacrosse. Barclay accumulated 429 goals and 266 assists for 695 points in 441 games while Stewart earned 301 goals and 140 assists for 441 points in 386 games.
Needless to mention that awards were many, topped by Cliff’s induction into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1973 and Black Jack’s entry in 1978.
