The opening quarter has started with an early goals 34 seconds in from Rhys Duch with Logan Schuss and Anthony Malcom getting helpers.

The Roughnecks countered with a four-goal performance that saw the first end with a 4-2 lead for the visitors.

Calgary continued their power performance with a seven-goal second quarter that saw them take a 11-6 lead to the dressing room at the half.

While the game was going to the “dogs” it was the “Superdogs” that were at time more entertaining than the game utilizing their amazing tricks and the tag-team relays that clearly entertained the stealth crowd.

Calgary wasn’t finished and managed to add 10 additional goals in the third with a commanding 21-8 lead after three quarters. 

The Stealth were led by Tony Malcom who notched three (3) goals and three (3) assists, while Corey Small and Casey Jackson had 2 goals and 2 assists each.

Rhys Duch had 1 goal and 2 assists, and Logan Schuss had 1 goal and 1 assist. Seth Oakes, and Andrew Suitor had the other goals for Vancouver.

He continued “We have great support here in Langley. It is incredible seeing how many fans stuck around just to chat with us after the game. Tonight, I saw kids wearing jerseys from every lacrosse organization across British Columbia and that is exactly who we want to be. We strive to be BC’s team.”
