The Thunder made sure that Raachel was present in spirit, by proudly hanging her jersey beside their team banner behind the bench. During the game Langley never relinquished the lead, with game MVP Jordan Daniel scoring 4 of the team’s 7 goals against North Delta, and goalie Jaxon Hendrickson playing an outstanding game in net. Final score of the game was 7-4 for Langley. > > This caps off an amazing season for the team, which was mostly composed of first year Bantam players. Thanks to Coach Brad Johnson, Assistant Coach Jamie Hendrickson, Doormen Karl Daniel, Randy Beaulieu, and Rusty Hendrickson, our amazing manager Mike Garbutt and the entire team of talented kids and supportive parents – ‘the little team that could’!

Washington Stealth moving to Vancouver

VANCOUVER, BC (Tuesday, July 2, 2013) – The Vancouver Stealth introduced themselves to the Province today at the Langley Events Centre during their introductory Press Conference. The junket was in follow up to the announcement last week that the National Lacrosse League (NLL) was coming back to the Greater Vancouver Area. National Lacrosse League Commissioner George Daniel was joined by media and the lacrosse community as the Stealth announced their plan for ticket sales while introducing the gathering to team ownership, management, coaching staff and a select group of players. Stealth ownership, led by Denise Watkins, discussed the team’s goals and vision while extending her excitement over the move to Vancouver;

“We want the fans to be as passionate about this team as I am,” Watkins, who has owned the team since 2007, acknowledged there will be work to do, “this is a great sport and a great team and our goal will be to entertain the fans on a nightly basis and integrate ourselves throughout the Lower Mainland and the Province.”

National Lacrosse League Commissioner George Daniel was equally excited about the professional box lacrosse circuit taking up residence on the west coast of Canada;

“British Columbia is one of the great hotbeds of lacrosse and now thanks to Stealth owners Bill & Denise Watkins, the NLL is back in BC to stay.”

With the inclusion of Vancouver as one of the nine teams in the league, the NLL can now boast coast to coast representation in Canada (with other Canadian teams being Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto).

Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese noted the impact that having the team call the LEC home will have on the community and the surrounding areas; “Having professional sports, the biggest stage in the world for lacrosse, playing out of the Langley Events Centre will be of tremendous benefit to the entire province of British Columbia,” Mayor Froese noted, “not only will it provide some exciting sport, but restaurants, hotels, and other local destinations will be the benefactor.”
