National Lacrosse League (NLL) Retro Game Of The Week

December 27th, 2003

Another National Lacrosse League Eastern Division match-up pitting the Wings against the Knighthawks at the War Memorial.

It’s the opening game of the 2003/2004 season, with the Knighthawks coming off a stellar 2002/2003 season finishing 12-4 and making it to the Champions Cup finals (Beaten by the Toronto Rock). The Philadelphia Wings were looking to recapture some of the magic from a few years past, finishing the previous year at .500, with more expected from them this year.

Dallas Eliuk and Pat O’Toole are the goaltenders in this game.

It’s always a battle when these two teams meet, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the game calling of 2020 Tom Borelli Award winner, Craig Rypczynski call this game.

Of note: The ceremonial faceoff was a who’s who of lacrosse with Randy Mearns dropping the ball, with Jake Bergey and Mike Hasen taking the faceoff.
