Vancouver stealthFebruary 14, 2014, Denver (ISN) - The Vancouver Stealth (3-6) dominated the Colorado Mammoth (4-6) 19-9 at the Pepsi Centre in Denver, on Friday night. With the win the Stealth bump the slump earning their first victory in five games, their first road win and they evened the season series with Colorado at two games apiece.

It was an impressive first half for the Stealth as their offense came out firing on all cylinders scoring nine goals to Colorado's one, in the first period. At the end of the first half the Stealth led 13-4 and were in complete control of the game,

"We had our backs against the wall a little bit so it was time to see what we were made of," said Stealth head coach, Chris Hall.

"It was also the first time this season that we pretty much had our offense from last year intact."

The offense continued to stay hot in the second half as the Stealth scored another 10 goals on route to a huge victory.

The Stealth were led by Brett Bucktooth who had a monster night, collecting a remarkable 12 points (6+6),

"Bucktooth was obviously phenomenal tonight," said coach Hall.

"He played well last week too but we were without Duchee and we finally had our captain back on defense and he's our leader back there."

Bucktooth was playing in just his second game of the season after missing time with injury, and it was his first game back alongside Rhys Duch this season. The two proved to be unstoppable tonight, as Duch had a breakout game as well, after missing last week's game with a suspension, he had four goals and seven assists.

Cliff Smith and Tyler Digby also contributed in a big way tonight tallying a combined 15 points. Smith had three goals and five assists, and Digby added one goal and six assists.

It was also a big night for another Stealth rookie, as Chris Wardle scored his first career NLL goal in highlight reel fashion, in just his second career game.

The Stealth were clicking in all aspects of their game tonight and will look to carry that momentum into tomorrow night's game against the Calgary Roughnecks. It's another important divisional matchup as the Stealth could pull even with Colorado in the Western Division standings with a win.

Game time tomorrow night is 6PM PST at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary. The game can also be seen on YouTube via The Lacrosse Network.
