Toronto Rock 8, New England Black Wolves 12, 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 seventh year going to the games and our sixth year having seasons tickets.

Tonight the Rock were hosting the New England Black Wolves ... it was the home opener.

Isabelle Funk sang the national anthems and Owen Sound Northstars held the giant Canadian flag.

The Rock players huddled before the game.

And the game began ...

Here is the view from our seats.

Tim and Gillian are season ticket holders who sit in front of us.  Since the end of the last season, they have had a baby boy.  Congrats!

At the end of the first quarter, the Black Wolves were winning 4 - 3.  Our section was full of Black Wolves fans so they were happy.

Our friend, Trish, came with us to the game ... here we are.

Gord, me and Trish

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained in the second quarter.

The red-wigged guys were back tonight.

At the end of the first half,  the Black Wolves were winning 8 - 6.

The Rock Cheerleaders entered in the third quarter.

At the end of the third quarter, the Black Wolves were winning 11 - 8.

This Black Wolves fan tried to climb up the glass.  Security and the police weren't impressed and she and some buddies were escorted out.

The prize for the 50/50 draw was over $5,000.  Alas, Gord and I didn't win.

The attendance at tonight's game was just over 7,000.

Alas, the Rock lost 12 - 8.

The players shook hands.

The Rock fans thanked their fans for coming out.

It was great to have the Rock back!  The next home game is in January.
