• Sunday, March 1, 2009 3:00am – We’re still in Boston, trying to get a good night’s sleep before we fly to New York. Hockeye’s phone rings waking both of us up in the middle of the night. It’s not great news. Our flight has been cancelled and we need to reschedule for an hour earlier. Now we need to alert the 30 guys on the trip that the bus leaves to the airport at 6am instead of 7am. Ah, life on the road. 6:00am – Everybody got word that the bus was leaving early and 30 tired, batte

  • Colin Doyle scored seven goals to lead a San Jose comeback from a five-goal deficit, but the Stealth ultimately lost 15-14 to the New York Titans at the Prudential Center on March 1.  It is the second loss in as many days for the Stealth, who drop to 3-6 on the season and into fifth place in the West Division standings. Stealth rookies Paul Rabil and Rhys Duch scored in the first quarter as San Jose fell behind 3-2 after one.  After Steve McKinlay scored his first career NLL goal to open the s

  • Saturday, February 28, 2009 The morning arrives and the team gathers for some breakfast in the hotel. It is the most important meal of the day after all. They then break for team meetings; Coach Dowling and his offensive coordinator Chris Hall go over the offensive strategies, and then assistants Art Webster and Joe Romano meet with the defense. After the meetings are over the guys go for lunch on their own. Some break off into groups and go to local eateries; some find a meal to bring back to t

  • After a first quarter dominated by the San Jose Stealth, the Boston Blazers scored five unanswered goals to take a 6-4 lead in the second. They never trailed from that point forward on their way to a 16-10 victory in the TD Banknorth Garden on February 28. After Boston scored the first goal of the game just three minutes in, the Stealth went on a 4-0 run to take an early lead with three minutes left in the opening frame. The Blazers cut the Stealth advantage to two leading into the second, and t

  • One of the most unique aspects of the National Lacrosse League is the travel schedule of the players involved. Most of these guys hold down regular jobs during the week and then hop on planes and fly all over North America on the weekends to play the game that they love. It can be quite crazy at times, especially on a two-game weekend like this one where we travel to the East Coast for games in Boston and New York (well, New Jersey). So to give the Stealth fans back on the left coast and the res

  • The San Jose Stealth travel to the East Coast for a pair of games against two of the top three teams in the National Lacrosse League’s East Division. The Stealth face off with East #2 Boston Blazers on February 28 at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, Mass., followed the next night by a clash with the New York Titans at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The Stealth (3-4) moved into fourth place in the West Division last weekend with a 14-9 victory over the Colorado Mammoth. That game was th

  • The San Jose Stealth added some depth to their transition game with the signing of second-year player Jim Borell February 25. Borell began the season with the Philadelphia Wings, where he appeared in just one game. The Wings signed Borell as a free agent prior to the 2008 season. He played in 11 games in 2008, recording two goals, nine assists and 46 loose balls. In his one appearance in 2009, he collected six loose balls. Borell graduated from the University of Maryland in 2007. Borell takes th

  • Five San Jose Stealth stars traveled to Palo Alto, Calif., last week to hold a lacrosse clinic for the Tomahawks Youth Lacrosse Club. The clinic was part of the Stealth’s ongoing effort to continue the growth of lacrosse in the Bay Area. Colin Doyle, Paul Rabil, Kyle Hartzell, Brett Manney and Will Dalton provided instruction many facets of the game to boys and girls ranging from second grade to high school. Over 100 children were in attendance to receive pointers from some of the best lacross

  • San Jose Stealth first-year forward Rhys Duch earned Rookie of the Week honors from the National Lacrosse League after a seven-point performance against the Colorado Mammoth on February 21. Duch recorded a hat trick and four assists to help the Stealth secure a 14-9 victory over its West Division rival. It was the highest point total of the season for the #3 overall pick in the 2008 NLL Draft who averages 5.14 points per game. Duch has tallied 13 goals and 23 assists for 36 points in seven games

  • What’s up Stealth fans?! This past weekend was an awesome experience getting a chance to play in front of one of the largest crowds we have had in San Jose. You know what? Sometimes I think people take for granted the success some other teams have with their loyal fan base and popularity. We had almost 7 gur? (is that the way you spell it? A lot of the fellas on our team say “gur” instead of “K”, “grand”, “cash”, “g’s”, “thousand”…you get it) at the HP Pavilion. I m
