New Westminster Salmonbellies win the first of 3 consecutive Mann Cup Championships (after a two year break they would win another 6 in a row from 1920-1925 and then win once more in 1927 before going on a decade long drought) A new pro league, the Western Lacrosse Association, was formed in 1915, but after the initlal announcement of the newly formed league consisting of teams in Vancouver and Victoria, no further mention of it is to be found.

Several years later (After the Mann Cup was turned over to the control of the Canadian Lacrosse Association in 1926) all references to the Calgary Chinooks title were removed from the recordsand and the opinions of the national lacrosse , amateur athletic organizations, and the BCLA bodies (that had all supported Vanocuver's position at the time of the wins )prevailed and the VAC is formally recognized as the winner of the series - their 4th consecutive Mann Cup.

However, Vancouver refused to turn the cup over to either the trustees or the Calgary side.

As control of the Mann Cup had been retained by the British Columbia Amateur Lacrosse Association (after the New Westminster Salmonbellies left that league to join the Pacific Coast Amateur Lacrosse Association), when the Vancouver Lacrosse Club won their schedule they were awarded the Mann Cup, About a week after the Vancouver Lacrosse Club was awarded the Mann Cup a match between them, as champions of the British Columbia Amateur Lacrosse Association, and the New Westminster Salmonbellies, as champions of the Pacific Coast Amateur Lacrosse Association was held.
