DENVER (CBS4)– The goalie for the Colorado Mammoth had his gear stolen on the eve of the team leaving for Calgary.

The lacrosse goalie Dillon Ward left his equipment outside his residence near 6th and Speer on Thursday where it was stolen.

The team leaves for Calgary on Friday morning where they’re set to take on the Roughnecks on Saturday in the West Division Semifinal of the Champion’s Cup Playoffs.

“I’ve been in the league for 20 years and this is a first,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett. “I don’t know who, in their right mind, would want smelly lacrosse goalie gear. Now we’re up against a real deadline to try to find a solution and to give Dillon a chance to make his postseason debut.”

National Lacrosse League goaltenders typically only own one set of gear. Ward also only has one set.

The team is asking for the prompt return of the gear to the Mammoth netminder.
