Rhys Duch scored four goals and had five assists to lead the Washington Stealth to a 17-13 win over the Philadelphia Wings in front of 4,352 Saturday night at Comcast Arena in Everett.
Tyler Richards made 38 saves for the Stealth in its National Lacrosse League regular-season finale. The Stealth improved to 9-7, tied for the best record in the West division.
