Toon Town Showdown for the Stealth
Vancouver, BC - Saturday, March 3, 2018 - The Stealth flew into snowy Saskatchewan for a showdown in Toon Town.
Vancouver opened the game with a pair of goals before the Rush got on the board, Corey Small quickly made it a 3-1 game, but the Rush piled on and did not look back after taking a 5-4 lead in the first, 10-4 lead in the second, 13-7 in the third and 16-10 after the fourth was finished.
"We had a bad second quarter where they beat us 5-0 and that is the tale of the tape," said Head Coach and Assistant General Manager Jamie Batley. "They were five for seven on the powerplay. If you give them one chance on the powerplay they will score."
Vancouver went 1-for-4 on the powerplay, while Saskatchewan went 5-for-7 including three powerplay goals in the first half. Stealth captain Matt Beers added a shorthanded goal, while Corey Small had 1 goal and 5 assists, Rhys Duch added 1 goal and 3 assists, Joel McCready, Tony Malcom and Pat Saunders each had 2 goals and 1 assist and Brandon Clelland had the other marker.
"We are not out of the playoffs, as we are only a couple wins away from catching Calgary," said Batley. "We have a couple games against Calgary and Colorado, so we need to win these divisional games. By no means are we throwing the towel in. We believe in the players in our dressing room and in two weeks we need to beat Colorado."
Vancouver will have a Week 14 bye, before returning home on March 17th against the Colorado Mammoth.
