Toronto Rock 11, Buffalo Bandits 10

Gord and I are season ticket holders for the Toronto Rock lacrosse team games ... the Rock is a professional lacrosse franchise in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).  This is our third year going to the games and our second year having seasons tickets.

Going into tonight's game, they were 9 - 2 and they were playing the Buffalo Bandits (who won last night's game against the Rock).

As usual, Scotty Newlands sang the American national anthem.

It was Kidz Night and Isabelle Funk sang the Canadian national anthem.

The Rock huddled before the game to get psyched.

And then the game began ...

The Rock scored first ... yay!

The season tickets holders around us were happy ... we always high-five

The red wig guys are always there.

At the end of the first quarter, the score was 2 - 2.

Last night's game was apparently scrappy.  There was one major fight in tonight's game.

The Toronto Rock cheerleaders entertained.

At the end of the second quarter, the Rock were winning 8 - 5.  Whoohoo!

There was a Mini Miss Cheerleaders Camp earlier today and they entertained during the intermission.  So cute!

The Rock huddled at the beginning of the third quarter to stay psyched.

The goalies' pads were measured ... this happens in every game.

The Toronto Rock cheerleaders entertained again.

At the end of the third quarter, Buffalo was winning 9 - 8 ... oh oh!

Iggy worked the crowd.

Roger and his father, Ben, came to the game with us.

The 50/50 prize was almost $5,300!

Alas, Gord and I didn't win it.

The attendance at tonight's game was almost 11,500.

At the end of the fourth quarter, the score was tied 10 - 10.

Iggy got the crowd pumped up for overtime.

The Rock scored in overtime to win.  Yay!

The Rock players congratulated each other

Then the two teams shook hands
Gillian and Tim were happy with the win
The Rock players thanked their fans

Here are the three stars of the game.

It was a good game ... exciting right to the end!  The Rock are now 10 - 2.
