Just getting back from the golf course and taking it easy on a beautiful day here in San Jose. We played well in the Western semi-final and beat the Portland LumberJax 20-16. From the first whistle to the end we were all over them. They pulled their starting goalie Matt Disher after the first quarter. Our offense played really well and didn’t give the Jax’ defense any rest.
This weekend may 9th we play the number one seeded Calgary Roughnecks for the Western Final in the Saddle Dome. We are only one game away from going to the NLL Championship!!!! Guys play for years and years and never get the opportunity to play for a championship. Coach Chris Hall tells us every weekend, “winning an NLL championship will change your lives.”
This league is filled with the best talent in the world so winning the Championship sets you apart from all the rest in the lacrosse world. We are one game away from getting there and this weekend we will see who comes to play and which team wants it more. I think with the leadership and talent that we have on this team, I don’t see why we can’t walk away this weekend as the Western champs.
Tune in this weekend at 9pm Eastern Time on www.nll.com to watch the action!!!
