Rush End Mammoth Undefeated Run

January 30, 2016

The Edmonton Rush got their first home win of the season defeating the Colorado Mammoth 12-10 on Friday night in front of a small but enthusiastic crowd of 8,624 at Sasktel Centre. The win also ends the Mammoth’s four game winning streak. It was a hard fought battle that did not see the Rush take a lead until the ten-minute mark of the final frame. The crowd was silenced early…


Stealth Stop Rush in Saskatchewan Opener

January 17, 2016

There was plenty of pre-game hype surrounding the Saskatchewan Rush and their home opener tonight, but the Rush failed to live up to their expectations. Right from the opening faceoff the Rush played an uncharacteristic style of play that showed some first-time jitters that you would expect from a team playing in front of its Saskatoon home crowd for the very first time in franchise history. This was not the…


NLL Pre Season Preview: Saskatchewan Rush

December 1, 2015

Even though the Rush franchise has made the move from Edmonton to Saskatoon, expectations for the Rush have not changed. The new Jerseys were unveiled last week from silver and black to green and black. The Jersey may be new, but those wearing the Jersey are expected to produce the same results as last season. Mark Matthews will be expected to be the teams leading scorer, with perhaps Ben McIntosh…


Edmonton Rush Relocation: Goodbye to the Champs

July 22, 2015

Just six short weeks ago the Edmonton Rush celebrated their first NLL Championship in franchise history. The team along with their small but faithful fan base was finally being rewarded for their efforts after a 10 year journey to finally lay claim to the Champion’s Cup. Today, that same fan base will not enjoy the opportunity to witness the raising of the 2015 Champions banner to the rafters at Rexall…


Making the Case for the Rush to Stay in Edmonton

June 11, 2015

Now that the Edmonton Rush have captured the 2015 Champions Cup, there is one more piece of business left for them to take care of. They need to secure a venue to play the 2016 season.  Their current lease agreement expires at the end of this season and they have yet to complete a deal with The City of Edmonton to play at Rexall place and Rogers Place once it…


Edmonton Rushes Rock To Win Title

June 6, 2015

The Edmonton Rush are NLL Champions for the first time in franchise history as they defeated the Toronto Rock in an all-Canadian final 11-10 to sweep the series 2-0 at Edmonton’s Crystal Glass Field at Rexall Place in front of 12,275 fans. The game was a close affair, unlike game one where the Rush dominated the Rock. It’s been ten years since Edmonton joined the NLL and although they made…


Matthews Leads Rush in Quest for First Cup

May 31, 2015

The Edmonton Rush took one step closer to bringing home their first ever Champion’s Cup. After manhandling the Toronto Rock with a 15-9 victory at Air Canada Centre they gave themselves the opportunity to win the Championship on home field on Friday night at Crystal Glass Field in Edmonton.

Rush Get Past Clash of Alberta

May 26, 2015

The Edmonton Rush advanced to the Champions Cup to play the Toronto Rock in an All-Canadian final with a hard fought win over the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday night. They certainly were pushed to the limit by the scrappy Calgary team, needing the 10-minute tie-breaking game to finally clinch the victory. It was a game where the Rush were thrown off their game by the Roughnecks and were never allowed…


Rush and Roughnecks Square Off in Game Two

May 23, 2015

The Edmonton Rush have had an interesting week to say the least.   Earlier owner Bruce Urban lashed out at The City of Edmonton and Mayor Don Ivason for lack of support. The public debate has certainly caused the players to lose focus from tonight’s all-important Western Final game. Coach Derek Keenan and his staff have the task of getting the players to turn their attention back to the field…


Rushing Out: Are the Rush As Good As Gone?

May 21, 2015

Last Friday night the Edmonton Rush fans were on a tremendous high. Their beloved team just finished beating the Calgary Roughnecks 10-8 to take a lead in the Western Division Finals. Today it’s like someone punched them in the stomach and left them feeling nauseous. Rush fans woke up this morning to the news that their team may be leaving town. Now they have heard this threat before, but this…
