National Lacrosse League (NLL) Retro Game Of The Week

Edmonton Rush vs. Washington Stealth
January 20th, 2013.

The Washington Stealth had been on top of the league the last few years. They faltered however in 2012 with only four wins, and were looking to rebound in 2013. Edmonton had made it to the finals in 2012 and were looking to win the championship this year.

This battle for West supremacy would have Mark Matthews, Corey Small, Zack Greer, Curtis Knight, as well as Aaron Bold in net for Edmonton, going against a Stealth team of Rhys Duch, Athan Iannucci, Lewis Ratcliff, Brett Bucktooth, with Tyler Richards in net, in a who’s who of professional Lacrosse.

This was a Sunday matinee played in Everett, Washington at the Comcast Arena.


*As a side note…

The Washington Stealth made it to the finals this year, but couldn’t secure their arena for the championship game. They went to the Langley Events Centre in Langley, B.C. to play the game…moving the franchise to Langley the following year, changing their name to the Vancouver Stealth.

The Edmonton Rush would spend three more seasons in Edmonton before moving the franchise to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in time for the 2016 season, becoming the Saskatchewan Rush.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.
