National League Lacrosse: Washington Stealth (7-4) Beat Philadelphia Wings On The Road 16-10 On March 9 To Stay On Top In NLL West


Washington Stealth

Washington’s special teams play held a coming-out party, scoring five short-handed goals to silence a potent Wings offense with a 16-10 road win, Saturday night at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center.
The victory – the Stealth’s third straight giving them their longest unbeaten run of the season, was Washington’s first-ever in Philadelphia and halted a three-win run by the Wings.
Now 7-4 with just five games remaining and holding down first in the NLL West, Washington needs just an eighth win, combined with a Colorado loss and a favorable tie-breaker scenario, to secure its third playoff berth in four years.
“It’s always difficult to win on the road and especially in the East Division,” said Stealth Head Coach Chris Hall.
“Road wins are hard to come by in this league. We were able to pounce on them early and got a huge lead,” he said. “We took advantage of the situations that presented themselves to us.”
And the situations were plentiful.
Entering the game with just a single short-handed goal on the season, the Stealth exploded for five scores on man-down situations to clip the Wings power play threat and quiet the Wells Fargo Center.
With season-high performances, NLL leading scorer Rhys Duch delivered five goals and three assists for eight points, while Lewis Ratcliff hit a career milestone with four goals for his 401st in 11 years of NLL play. Along with three assists, Ratcliff had seven key points on the night.

Rhys Duch delivered his 400th career point as the Washington Stealth powered to a full-game lead in the NLL West with an 11-8 win over the Minnesota Swarm, Sunday before 2,663 at Everett’s Comcast Arena.
With its second consecutive win over a West Division opponent, the now 6-4 Stealth moved a full game ahead of both Edmonton (5-5) and Calgary (5-5), which fell to the Rush on Saturday. Minnesota, now at 3-6, is fourth in the West followed by Colorado at 2-6.
“To be alone in first after ten games in the West is pretty gratifying,” said Stealth Coach Chris Hall. “Even when Minnesota came at us we held up pretty well. I think we earned that tonight.”
In what has become an up-and-down season in a highly competitive NLL West, Sunday’s victory marked the second time in the 2013 campaign where the Stealth put together back-to-back wins since downing defending NLL champion Rochester and then Colorado in the first two games of the season.
“I think we learn game-by-game the offense is showing better signs of chemistry,” Hall said.
For Duch, who entered the game with 395 points, his career milestone came in the unselfish fashion that has characterized the Stealth’s play all season – with his fourth assist of the night on a Brett Bucktooth goal just 30 seconds into the fourth.

National League Lacrosse: Colorado Mammoth (1-2) Defeated 19-12 By Calgary Roughnecks On Jan 25


Colorado Mammoth vs Calgary

Six days ago, the Colorado Mammoth stole a win from the Calgary Roughnecks at Scotiabank Saddledome in Alberta. On Friday night, the Roughnecks got their revenge, beating the Mammoth, 19-12, on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center.
“It’s tough to find a positive after tonight,” said Colorado captain Gavin Prout, whose first of two goals he scored on Friday was the 200th of his Mammoth career.
A week after Roughnecks forward Shawn Evans’ four-goal, three-assist performance was outshined by NLL Offensive Player of the Week John Grant Jr.’s six goals and two helpers, the 26-year-old answered back. Evans finished with 13 points (4g, 9a), 10 of which came before halftime, to set a new franchise single-game points record.
Mammoth forward Sean Pollock, who netted the overtime game-winner last Saturday, scored on the power-play 34 seconds into Friday’s contest, giving Colorado its first lead in regulation this season. Goals by Jamie Lincoln and Mat MacLeod quickly made it 3-0, but Calgary was fast to respond. The Roughnecks would score seven of the next eight to finish the 1st quarter with a 7-4 cushion…and they never looked back.
