Year-by-year review[edit]

2001 season[edit]

The Saskatchewan Major Box Lacrosse League was formed in May 2001 with the Big River Bulldogs, Saskatoon Smash, Regina and Assiniboia Attack. The Saskatoon Smash took the first year's unofficial league title by going undefeated throughout the season although no playoffs were held.

2002 season[edit]

The league added the Moose Jaw Mustangs team and the Mustangs did not disappoint, not losing a game all year to capture the first-ever official PGLL Provincial title by defeating the Saskatoon Smash in the final.

2003 season[edit]

The 2003 season was a huge success with the final game summarizing just how exciting this league is and will become even more so in the future as the developing teams become more competitive. The Moose Jaw Mustangs once again captured the league championship with a thrilling overtime victory over the Saskatoon Smash. The season saw large growth in the number of teams with the Swift Current Rampage, Yorkton Bulldogs, Prince Albert Predators and the first senior team, Regina Heat, entering the league.

The Saskatchewan Major Box Lacrosse League changed the name of the league to the Prairie Gold Lacrosse League at a meeting held on December 15, 2003.

2004 season[edit]

The 2004 season was another great season for the PGLL, including the first season of tiered Junior lacrosse. The Tier 1 title was once again won by the Moose Jaw Mustangs, although the team did lose its first ever game in the league. Moose Jaw dropped a game to the Yorkton Bulldogs in the best-of three final series. The Tier 2 title was also won by Moose Jaw, showing this program has a strong contingent of players ready to keep the Mustangs near the top of the PGLL for years to come.

2005 season[edit]

2005 was a history-making season with Saskatoon hosting the Founders Cup for the first time in Saskatchewan's history. The Moose Jaw Mustangs kept their Tier 1 championship streak alive, defeating the Saskatoon Smash in the final series. The Tier 2 championship was won by the Saskatoon Steelers. The Regina Heat captured the first-ever PGLL Senior title with a win over the expansion Saskatoon Brewers.

2006 season[edit]

The Moose Jaw Mustangs kept their Tier 1 championship streak alive defeating the Saskatoon Smash in the final series. The Tier 2 championship was won once again by the Saskatoon Steelers showing the upcoming depth of the Saskatoon program. The Regina Heat captured their second consecutive PGLL Senior title with a win over the Saskatoon Brewers.

2007 season[edit]
