Toronto Rock 10, Edmonton Rush 13

Gord and I went to the Toronto Rock game this afternoon (we have season's tickets this year).  The Rock is a professional lacrosse franchise in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

The Rock were playing the Edmonton Rush.  The Rush were undefeated so far this year ... 12 - 0.  The Rock were 5 - 9.  Go Rock, go!

We got there early and watched the teams warm up.

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained.

Scotty Newlands sang the national anthem along with the Adam Beck Jr. Public School Choir.

The Rock players huddled before the game started.

And the game began ...

Tim and Gillian, who always sit in front of us, cheered the Rock goals.

The game was a bit scrappy.

The action from our seats.

At the end of the first quarter, the Rock were down 4 - 3.  Oh no!

The Rock cheerleaders entertained again in the second quarter.

At the end of the second quarter, the Rock were winning 7 - 6.  Whoohoo!

Iggy was enthusiastic at the beginning of the third quarter.

The Rock huddled again to get psyched.  Go Rock, go!

There were some minor scuffles in the third quarter.

Gord's birthday is tomorrow and birthday wishes were on the jumbo screen!

The Rock cheerleaders entertained once again.

At the end of the third quarter, the Rush were winning 9 - 8.

The attendance at this afternoon's game was almost 11,000.

We bought 50/50 tickets and the prize was almost $5,600!

Alas, we were 31 tickets away from winning it!  Boo!

The final score was Edmonton 13 - Toronto 10.  Sigh ...

The Rock should each other's hands.

Tim and Gillian cheered the Rock after the game.

The teams shook hands.

The Rush players got a big cocky and the Rock players tried to put them in their place.

The Rock quickly thanked their fans before they left the field.

One of the Rock player was one of the three stars of the game.

The Rock played well in the first half but fell apart in the second half, which is where they seem to have trouble.  There are only two games left in the season and it's not looking good for the playoffs.
