Knighthawks to defend championship title Saturday

Posted at: 05/08/2013 10:32 PM

The Rochester Knighthawks are in the Champion's Cup Final for the second straight season and a win would make the team the first back-to-back champions since Toronto won in 2002 and 2003.

To bring the cup back to the city, Rochester will have to beat the Washington Stealth. The game will be played in Langley, British Columbia on Saturday.

The two sides split their season series one game each.

The Knighthawks were nearly eliminated in the divisional final, but the team scored five unanswered goals in the fourth quarter to slip by Minnesota.

Being the defending champs is never an easy title to defend.

The champion's cup is set for 7 p.m. this Saturday. It's the third time in six seasons the Knighthawks have reached the finals.
