The West All-Stars snapped a four-game losing streak in the National Lacrosse League All-Star game on Saturday night, coming from behind to defeat the East 20-18.

Washington Stealth forward Lewis Ratcliff dished four assist in the game. The West All-Stars were also coached by Stealth coach Chris Hall, who a day after making his return to the team after months of treatment for throat cancer, was behind the bench for the All-Star game.

Calgary Roughnecks transition player Geoff Snider, a brother to the Stealth’s Bob Snider, was named the games Most Valuable Player. Snider had four goals, two assists and won 22 of the 26 draws he took.

The East had built a 9-2 lead two minutes and 44 seconds into the second quarter, but outscored the East 6-2 for the remainder of the half to cut the deficit to 11-8 at the intermission.
