National League Lacrosse: Colorado Mammoth Defeat Minnesota Swarm 20-14 In Season Opener As John Grant Jr. Scores 4 Goals With 7 Assists

The Colorado Mammoth immortalized Brian Langtry on Saturday night by retiring his jersey. If the Mammoth hadn’t scored so often, they would have made prognosticator out of him as well in a 20-14 season-opening win against the Minnesota Swarm.

After his No. 6 was raised to the Pepsi Center rafters before the game, the recently-retired forward predicted to the fans that Colorado would win by three. Close enough, according to teammates.

John Grant Jr. (#24) registered 11 points (four goals, seven assists) and Prout surpassed the 800-point mark for his career with three goals and six assists, allowing Colorado to kick off its 10th season by equaling a club record for goals.

“Did he say three? That’s it?” Mammoth captain Gavin Prout quipped. “He obviously has no confidence in this team. But seriously, we had about 18 or 19 Brian Langtrys running around out there tonight.”

Before a small-but-enthusiastic crowd undoubtedly reduced because of the Broncos-Patriots game, the Mammoth broke a five-game losing streak to the Swarm with one of the finest offensive outbursts in team annals.


National League Lacrosse: Washington Stealth Lose Season Opener 13-10 To Calgary Roughnecks

The Washington Stealth opened the 2012 schedule tonight against the Calgary Roughnecks at the Comcast Arena at Everett in a rematch of the 2011 Western Division Final. Calgary avenged the loss that ended their 2011 campaign with a hard-fought 13-10 victory on Saturday night to improve their record to 2-0 on the season, while the Stealth falls to 0-1.

The game was a back-and-forth battle from the start. The teams traded goals throughout the first quarter as the score was tied at three after fifteen minutes of action.

Stealth All-Pro forward Rhys Duch tallied two goals in the opening frame.

Duch completed his first half hat trick in the opening minute of the second quarter to make it 4-3. Curtis Manning answered with the first of two goals on the night to knot the score once again, but Jeff Zywicki had the last word of the half with 1:45 left in the second quarter to give the Stealth a 5-4 lead at the break.

The third quarter saw the momentum shift in the Roughnecks favor. Within the first two minutes and twelve seconds of the second half, Calgary netted three goals to take a 7-5 lead. They wouldn’t trail again. Lewis Ratcliff scored the Stealth’s only goal of the third, and the Roughnecks took a 8-6 lead into the final stanza.
