National League Lacrosse: Washington Stealth Looks To Compete In Third Straight NLL Championship Game In 2012

“It’s going to be another exciting year of Stealth lacrosse,” said Stealth President David Takata. “Having competed in the last two NLL Championship Games and still bitter from a one goal loss to the Toronto Rock last year, our players are hungry to hit the floor and bring the Champion’s Cup back to Washington. We have one of the best products in all of sports and off the floor, and we have a number of great events planned for the season that we know our growing fan base will love.”

One of those events will take place on Opening Night, when the Stealth hosts the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday, January 14 at the Comcast Arena.  The Stealth will be raising their 2011 Western Division Championship banner and hosting a special fundraiser for the American Red Cross. The home opener is always one the team’s best attended games and fans are urged to purchase tickets early to get the best seats.

Takata noted, “We open the season facing one of our toughest western rivals, the Calgary Roughnecks, and finish at home against two eastern teams sporting a combined 10 winner’s plates on the Champion’s Cup. Fans can expect a special year in 2012 and we’re making it easy to catch several games for those unable to purchase a full season package.”
