Toronto Rock 14, Georgia Swarm 9, Scotiabank Arena, 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.

The Rock were hosting the Georgia Swarm ... the Swarm had beat Toronto in their first home game last month.  Coming into tonight's game, they were tied for first place in the eastern division.

Scotty Newlands sang the American national anthem.

Students from Mary Ward Catholic Secondary School sang the Canadian national anthem.

The Rock players huddled before the game started.

 And the game began ...

Here's the view from our seats ...

When the Rock scored the first goal, Tim and Gillian, season's ticket holders who sit in front of us, were happy.

DJ Sweet Lou provided the tunes during the game.

The red-wigged guys were there but were missing a couple.

At the end of the first quarter, the Rock were leading 4 - 0.

Charlie Montoyo, the new manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, and his family were at the game.

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained.

At the end of the second quarter, the Rock were leading 7 - 5.

The second half began ...

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained again ...

At the end of the third quarter, the Rock were leading 10 - 8.

The prize for the 50/50 draw was just over $5,625.

Alas, we didn't win.

We didn't see much of Iggy, the Rock mascot, until the fourth quarter.  Everyone loves Iggy and Iggy loves everyone!

He's so proud of his abs!

The attendance at tonight's game was 7,118.

The Rock won 14 - 9 ... whoohoo!

Tim and Gillian were happy!

The Rock players shook hands with the Georgia players.

The Rock players thanked their fans.
