Langley’s Stealth to take on Saskatchewan

Lacrosse teams from the coast and prairies will clash in the home-and-home series.

The Vancouver Stealth have their first home and home of the season starting Saturday when they head to chilly Saskatoon to take on the Rush.

After their road trip to the Prairies, the Stealth will be back in their home base at the Langley Events Centre on Feb. 10 for a re-match.

Local fans can follow the Saskatchewan game via NLL TV and on radio on TSN, as well as through the National Lacrosse League’s “Twitter Game of the Week.” The game will be livestreamed free on Twitter.

“It is exciting that the Stealth are playing in the Twitter Game of the Week, it is a chance to show their fans and teams that they are ready to start a run. It is also incredibly important to capture new eyes on the best game in the world,” said Stealth play-by-play broadcaster Jake Elliott. “Vancouver has matched up well with the Rush over the past few seasons and I am expecting another similar performance on Saturday night.”

After starting the season in a bit of a funk, the Stealth’s Corey Small has found his scoring touch, bagging 12 goals and five points or more in his last four games. Meanwhile, Logan Schuss has started the 2018 season off hot, already tallying 15 goals and 15 assists in five games and is on pace for his most prolific season in the National Lacrosse League.

Tickets to the next home game on February 10 are still available online.
