Stealth drop season opener to host Mammoth

Langley’s pro lacrosse team came up empty-handed in its season debut Saturday night in Colorado.

The Vancouver Stealth fell 13-12 to the Colorado Mammoth to drop to 0-1 in their National Lacrosse League season.

The Mammoth, cheered on by a sellout crowd at Colorado’s Pepsi Centre, evened its record to 1-1 on the year.

“There’s a lot of one goal games in this league and the team that weathers the momentum storms and doesn’t make those fundamental mistakes usually end up on top,” Stealth head coach Chris Hall said, on the team’s website. “In the final minutes we made a number of those fundamental errors that ended up costing us.”

The Stealth led 8-5 at one point in the third quarter, but saw the lead slip away.

In his NLL debut, Vancouver’s Tyler Digby finished with three goals and six points in a losing cause.

Alex Gajic scored his first NLL goal since 2011 and finished the game with a game high eight points (including seven assists).

Rhys Duch scored scored four goals and added two assists.

The Stealth will play their first ever home game in franchise history this Saturday, Jan. 11, when they host the Minnesota Swarm at the Langley Events Centre. Game time is 7 p.m.
