The New Jersey Storm will be out for revenge this Saturday when they travel down the New Jersey Turnpike to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Philadelphia Wings in a National Lacrosse League contest at 1:00 p.m.
The Storm will be looking to avenge a 16-15 home loss to the Wings earlier this season on February 6, 2003 and notch their second win in as many tries inside the First Union Center, after handing the Wings a 13-11 home loss on February 16, 2002.
The Storm, who will complete their current three-game road swing on Saturday, sit just two games behind the Wings for second place in the League's Eastern Division despite the fact that they have lost six straight games. Leading the Storm attack this season continues to be forward Roy Colsey (20G, 16A), who sits one goal shy of the single-season franchise record of 21, set last season by former Stormer Matt Panetta. Assisting Colsey on offense have been forwards Scott Stewart (16G, 10A) and Cam Bomberry (10G, 11A). Storm goalie Matt Roik is expected back from arthroscopic knee surgery for the Philadelphia game.
Headlining the Wings offensive unit is forward Tom Marechek (13G, 19A), who scored the game winning goal against the Storm last time out. Following close behind Marechek are the team's second leading goal scorers: Paul Cantabene, Tony Henderson and Jeff Ratcliffe (all with 12 goals).
