Toronto Rock 7, New England Black Wolves 8, Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON

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 sixth year going to the games and our fifth year having seasons tickets.

Toronto was playing the New England Black Wolves.  Heading into the game this afternoon, the Black Wolves were in first place in the east but are just a half game in front of the Rock.

As usual, Scotty Newlands sang the national anthems.

The Rock players huddled before the game.

And the game began ...

Tim and Gillian, season's ticket holders who sit in front of us, were happy when Toronto got the first goal.  Today is Tim's birthday.

Here's the view from our seats.

The red-wigged guys sat across the way, as usual.

At the end of the first quarter, the Rock were losing 4 - 1.

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained in the second quarter.

At the end of the second quarter, Toronto was losing 6 - 4.

Here are me and Gord.

The Rock Cheerleaders again entertained in the third quarter.

The prize for the 50/50 draw was almost $8,000.

Alas, we didn't win.

Iggy, the Rock mascot, came over to our section.  Everyone loves Iggy!

There were over 10,000 people at today's game.

Bellosound provided the music during the game.

The score was tied 7 - 7 and we cheered on the Rock to score.

New England scored in overtime, winning the game.

Despite the loss, Tim and Gillian showed their appreciation.

The players shook hands.

The Rock players thanked the fans for coming out.
