Last October, over 1,575 lacrosse fans assembled to experience the seat-gripping action and to support their favorite mile high team as all-star athletes from Denver’s pro teams faced off against the DU Pioneers in the very first Colorado Lacrosse Showcase.
The pros had the edge over the Pioneers in last year’s game; scoring three unanswered points in the fourth quarter to secure the win and defend their pro caliber.
DU head coach Bill Tierney was quoted saying that he was “proud of the way [his] guys performed against one of the best professional lacrosse teams” and said that “this year’s contest should prove to be just as exciting.”
Players from Colorado’s indoor and outdoor pro teams will take on the DU Pioneers for the highly anticipated second annual Colorado Lacrosse Showcase which will be held at Peter Barton Stadium on Saturday, October 23 at 1:30 p.m.
Tickets for the game are $5 ($7 at the door) and go on sale Friday, Oct. 1 at 10:00 a.m. They can be purchased through www.Ticketmaster.com or at the DU Box Office, located in the Daniel L. Ritchie Center on the DU campus.. Admission for DU students is free with a valid Pioneer Card.
Following to the game, the Denver Outlaws will host the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase Youth Clinic on the field from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The pros will teach kids essential lacrosse skills including shooting, dodging, footwork, one-on-one defense, clearing, and transition work.
