The Boston Blazers kicked off their 2011 season with an impressive 10-6 win against the Philadelphia Wings on Saturday January 8. Blazers captain Dan Dawson led the team with 8 assists, while teammate Casey Powell tallied 5 goals and goaltender Anthony Cosmo surrendered six goals, but saved 25 of the 31 shots on net.
On Wednesday January 12, 2011, Blazers head coach Matt Sawyer discussed through a league conference call that he was rather pleased with his teams outcome during their first game.
“We were relaxed, I was relaxed and calm (prior to the beginning of our first game). I guess (we all experienced) some anxiety and (were) just anxious to get the game started, but that’s no difference from any other coach. We felt calm and we were relaxed and just anxious to get going and happy with the result.”
The Blazers will have their home opener this Saturday January 15, 2011, when they welcome the Edmonton Rush to the T.D. Garden for a 7:30pm faceoff. For tickets and other information, make sure to visit the teams website at www.blazerslacrosse.com.
