ROCK FACE RIVAL BANDITS TO OPEN THE 2018-19 SEASON
Home Opener Is Dec. 28 Vs. Georgia
Oakville, ON – The National Lacrosse League today announced the full schedule for the 2018-19 regular season. For the second consecutive year, Toronto will travel to Buffalo to open the season against the Bandits on Sat., Dec. 1 at KeyBank Center. The Rock season opener is one of three games on the NLL Week 1 schedule.
The Toronto Rock Home Opener will feature a massive divisional showdown with the Georgia Swarm on Fri., Dec 28 at 7:30 p.m. at Scotiabank Arena. The Swarm finished atop the East Division regular season standings a year ago, so this is sure to be a measuring stick game for the Rock right off the hop.
The Rock will host both NLL expansion teams this season. The Philadelphia Wings will play in the East Division and visit Toronto twice. The first matchup against the Wings will be on Fri., Jan 9 as the Rock will welcome back Brett Hickey for the first time in a visitor’s uniform after he was first selected first overall by Philadelphia in the Expansion Draft in July.
San Diego comes to Toronto for their one and only visit on Fri., Feb. 15 at Scotiabank Arena. This is the sole regular season matchup on schedule between the Rock and the Seals marking the only game Turner Evans will face his former team after San Diego selected him with the second overall pick in the Expansion Draft.
After taking a closer look, fans will quickly notice that this year’s schedule has a heavy focus on games within the East Division. The Rock will play teams outside the division just five teams, facing each West Division team just once, either at home or on the road.
