Colorado Mammoth vs. Portland Lumberjax
January 21 2016 – The high scoring Colorado Mammoth visit the expansion Portland Lumberjax for the Home Opener of their inaugural National Lacrosse League Season at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon.
Game Notes: The Colorado Mammoth went on to win the 2006 NLL Championship. The Portland Lumberjax were the first expansion team in league history to win their Division.
Both teams lineups were stacked, making this one of the MUST SEE games of the year.
Colorado had Captain Gavin Prout, Chris Gill, Brian Langtry, Dan Carey, and Dan Stroup for offensive power. Portland answered with Mike Hominuk, Peter Morgan, Del Halliday, and Ryan Sharp with Brodie Merrill vacuuming up loose balls, as well as being a huge force in transition.
The goaltending battle had Dallas Eliuk for the Lumberjax against Chris Levis for the Mammoth.
This was an intense game that went right down to the wire, with the outcome not determined until the final horn!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.
