Season Opener: A New Beginning

TORONTO- There’s something about a new lacrosse season on the horizon. It’s a new beginning, a mixture of new and familiar faces coming together and preparing for battle. Usually, those faces will blend together quickly, becoming one solid unit, everyone doing their part, pulling their weight as they embark on the same goal; a championship.

Historically, the Toronto Rock have done well on their first test of the season, even though they lost their inaugural game 21-10 to the Baltimore Thunder (now the Colorado Mammoth), they still went on to win their next 4 season debut’s. Three of those seasons, 2000,2002 and 2003 they went on to capture the Champion’s Cup.  Toronto’s overall record for season openers is 10-5. Ten times the Rock have opened up the season as the visiting team, winning seven of those meetings. They still hold a winning record when opening up at home as well, winning three of the five matchups.

This season Toronto will open up at home where they’ve won five of their first six home openers from 99’-05’. They also captured five of their six championships during that run. Things changed though after an overtime loss in the 2006 opener to visiting Arizona. Since then, Toronto has lost five of their last seven home openers including the past two seasons, a 12-9 loss to Calgary in 2012 and a 8-7 loss to the Philadelphia Wings last year.

Any former or current Rock player will tell you that there is nothing like playing in front of their hometown fans. Captain Colin Doyle has the most experience with opening games at the Air Canada Centre

“No matter how many times you’ve done it, it’s still pretty exciting,” says Doyle. “To come out of that tunnel and have fans cheer for you, it brings me back to being 19 again and you remember why this is such a great game to play.”

January 3rd marks the third straight year the Rock will start things off against Calgary. The Roughnecks took the first meeting by a score of 12-9 in Toronto in 2012, but the Rock had redemption last season winning 13-11 and spoiling Calgary’s first game of the season in front of their hometown fans at the Scotia Bank Saddledome.

Rock fans will once again get a chance to cheer loud and proud for their team, when Toronto hits the floor Friday.

“I’m sure the fans will give us a real friendly reminder when we get out on the floor Friday night” said Doyle. “Hopefully it will kick start our year!”
