After an intense season, the Edmonton Rush lacrosse team has secured a spot in the National Lacrosse League Playoffs in May, looking to claim the 2013 Championship title after narrowly missing a win in 2012 in the final 6-9 game against Rochester Knighthawks. With one game left in the regular season, the Rush hope to go in to the playoffs on a high note with a win against the Calgary Roughnecks.
Lacrosse is exciting — it is Canada’s official sport, and the action is extremely fast paced. Even if you’ve never been to a game before, it’s easy to catch on to the process and you certainly won’t be bored. Our team is passionate, skilled, and extremely determined about strategizing and winning. If you want to know what to expect from a game, have a look at previous game footage on the National Lacrosse League’s You Tube Channel — then imagine the excitement hundred of time more intense at a real game!
