Lacrosse fans in Saskatchewan have been waiting months for their new team – the Saskatchewan Rush – to play their first home opener in Saskatoon.

And there are hopes for Friday’s game after the Rush won their season opener against Calgary.

On the team is Jeremy Thompson from the small Onondaga Nation in New York, a place with a strong cultural connection to the game.

It’s not just a game, it’s medicine says Thompson.
