In Dallas Eliuk’s own words…
Back when there were only a couple pair of goals used for the entire league, on this night neither set could be found. SO, this match-up features two goaltenders of opposite style contending with goals used for ice hockey, wearing very little equipment by today’s standards. Ted Sawicki for Detroit and Dwight Maetche (one of my lacrosse idols) for Philadelphia, both at the top of the MILL, both wishing they’d stayed home. Enjoy this high scoring affair.
Note to NLL: With the advance of plastics and foam there’s absolutely no reason for today’s goalie equipment to be so bulky.
If it’s lots of goals you like, then this is the game for you!
This is a scoreboard feed, and in-house announcer for audio.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety!
