Steelhawks Battle Reading Express in Mother's Day Game
The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks are offering all Moms out there FREE admission, with the purchase of a separate adult ticket, for the game featuring the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks taking on their cross-town rivals the Reading Express on Mother’s Day, Sunday 5/8 at 4pm.
This is also Relay for Life Night, when the Steelhawks will be wearing alternate black and purple jerseys that will be auctioned off all game with total proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. The game worn jerseys will be cleaned, autographed and delivered to the lucky winners following the game.
The Steelhawks and the Express have played down to the final minute in each of their previous three contests with the Express having the edge in all three. The Express are on a path for the Atlantic Division title, and the Steelhawks will try to derail that for another week.
The Steelhawks have had a tough time of late, and hope to turn all their negatives into positives in the second half of the season. A victory over the Express would certainly help with that. On defense Adrian McLeod has shown up in a big way since being acquired in Week four. The Steelhawks Linebacker is averaging nearly ten tackles per game and has contributed two sacks and two forced fumbles.
Tickets for the game can be purchased via the Steelhawks website, by calling the Stabler Arena Box Office at 610-758-6611 or at Stabler Arena.
