from press release

DENVER - The University of Denver men's lacrosse team and Major League Lacrosse's Denver Outlaws will face-off for the first time in the inaugural Colorado Lacrosse Showcase on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 1 p.m.at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium on the DU campus. The game will be preceded by the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase Youth Clinic at 10 a.m., featuring the Denver Outlaws and an appearance by DU coaching legend Bill Tierney.

Fans will get the chance to see their favorite Outlaws players at both the game and clinic, including DU assistant coach Matt Brown. This will be the first scrimmage of the 2009-10 season under coach Tierney and the first time the Pioneers have squared off against a professional lacrosse team.

"I can't think of a more exciting day of lacrosse for the Denver lacrosse community, or a greater setting for this contest than Peter Barton Stadium, located on our beautiful campus in the shadows of the majestic Rocky Mountains," Tierney said.  "It will be a great opportunity for our alumni, families and friends to observe the exciting things that are happening in and around the DU men's lacrosse program."

Tickets are $5 and will go on sale on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 10 a.m.

"This should be a great event for Colorado lacrosse," said Outlaws head coach Brian Reese. "The Outlaws look forward to getting back on the field and taking on a very good collegiate team. I expect DU to be a very prepared and talented team and this will be a special kickoff to the Bill Tierney era in Denver."

Admission for the youth clinic is $50 and includes a ticket to the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase game. Geared towards boys in second through eighth grade, the Outlaws will host the clinic from 10 a.m. to noon on the field at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.

Skills covered in the clinic include shooting, dodging, footwork, one-on-one defense, clearing and transition work. An autograph session with the Outlaws players will also be included at 11:30 a.m.
