January 4, 2014, Vancouver (ISN) – Vancouver Stealth (0-0) vs Colorado Mammoth (0-1) Game Broadcast: TSN2, January 4th, 2014 – 6:00 PM PST The Lacrosse Network – Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado (YouTube).
Last Season: In their two meetings with the Mammoth in 2013 the Stealth controlled both ends of the floor outscoring the Colorado Mammoth 30-19. Cliff Smith put together two solid performances against his former team recording 11 points on 6 goals and 5 assists.
What’s New: The Stealth made some big changes over the offseason with probably the biggest change being their move from Everett to Vancouver. A new home and a new look, but some familiar faces will be returning to the lineup including Captain Kyle Sorensen, last year’s leading goal scorer Rhys Duch and goaltender Tyler Richards.
Richards will also have a strong group of returning D-Men in front of him starting with Assistant Captain Mike Grimes, nine year defenders Curtis Hodgson and Jeff Moleski, Chris O’Dougherty, Justin Salt, Matt Beers, Bill Hostrawser, and Tyler Garrison. The only new addition to this years defensive core is Ilija Gajic who brings four more year’s of experience.
Head Coach Chris Hall will be at the helm once again for the Stealth as he enters his 6th season with the team. The Stealth were one win away from the Championship title last year as they look for another trip to the final. The team’s first Champions Cup title came back in 2010 and the Stealth have been in three of the last four Championship games, as they look to add another banner in their new home at the Langley Events Centre.
