Larry S. G. Ferguson

Larry is another example of quality graduates from Peterborough minor lacrosse, playing on Ontario championship teams at peewee, bantam and midget levels, and in 1957 he was a member of the Minto Cup-winning Brampton junior club.

In 1958, he stepped up to Peterborough seniors and, although still junior age, won the Sr. OLA scoring crown. He won the scoring title again in 1965. Larry appeared in eight Mann Cup Championship series, emerging triumphant three times:  Peterborough Pepsi’s in 1966, the Lakers in 1973 and Red Oaks in 1978. In 34 Mann Cup games he scored 63 points.

Known particularly for his cool head and remarkably accurate underhand shot, Ferguson’s scoring exploits were remarkable. In 18 seasons he played 544 games, scored 750 goals and assisted on another 718 for 1,468 total points. He also played and coached pro lacrosse with Philadelphia Wings and Boston Bolts, and coached Peterborough Lakers in 1987. Ferguson was elected to the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1989.
