Toronto Rock 16, Saskatchewan Rush 13, 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 theme was Country Night and KX Country was giving out prizes.  Gord is a big country fan ... he spun the wheel and won a pin.

The Rock were hosting the Saskatchewan Rush ... the Rush were last year's league champions.  The Rock are in first place in the eastern division.

The Silverthorn Collegiate Choir sang O Canada.

The players huddled before the game started.

And the game began ...

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

Here is the view from our seats ...

The red-wigged guys were there.

Everyone loves Iggy, the Rock mascot, who embraced the country theme.

 DJ Sweet Lou provided the tunes during the game.

At the end the first quarter, the Rock were leading 6 - 5.

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained.

 Iggy roamed around our section.

Everyone love Iggy!
Look at those abs!

 After the first half, the Rock were winning 11 - 7.

 Keeping with the country theme, Jade Edington was the halftime entertainment.

 The second half began ...

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained.

At the end of the third quarter, the Rock were winning 14 - 10.

The prize for the 50/50 draw was just over $7,000.

Alas, we didn't win.

The attendance of tonight's game was just over 8,000.

And the Rock won 16 - 13 ... whoohoo!

The Rock players shook hands with the Rush players.

Tim and Gillian were happy with the win!

 The Rock players thanked their fans.
