Jones Historic Fourth Quarter Leads Mammoth Past Stealth

February 28, 2016

Adam Jones doesn’t care much for your five goal lead. Jones was at his very best in the fourth quarter of the Colorado Mammoth’s come-from-behind 11-10 win over the Vancouver Stealth. He had the quickest natural hat-trick, the league says, since at least 2005. He erased Vancouver’s lead at 9:08 of the final quarter before winning the game with two seconds left in the game. For Vancouver, the first half…

Stealth Bring Back Tyler Richards in the Crease

February 10, 2016

By bringing back an old face, the Vancouver Stealth aren’t exactly bringing a new look to the crease, but it could be a welcomed one.

Coming off a major win over the defending champion Saskatchewan Rush, hopes were high for the Vancouver Stealth to find some consistency in what has been an otherwise inconsistent tenure since relocating from Washington.

Stealth Notebook: Week One Loss to New England

January 11, 2016

For much of the first half of the game, the Vancouver Stealth competed with New England in a high-intensity game with a lot of back and forth between the two defenses.

Black Wolves Open 1-0 With Vancouver Win

January 10, 2016

If someone were to show you a tape of the Vancouver Stealth’s 17-7 loss to the New England Black Wolves, you would have sworn you were watching tape of last year’s team. In a “no excuses” season for the Stealth, the team came out with a lackluster performance, falling to the visiting Black Wolves for their third season-opening loss in as many as years since relocating to Langley, B.C. Many…
