Stephen Hoar Brings Size, Presence to Wings Defense

March 6, 2014

The trading deadline may be 12 days away, but the Philadelphia Wings have gone out and signed Stephen Hoar to a one year deal and placed him on the active roster making him available for this weekend’s matchup against the Rochester Knighthawks. With that move the Wings have placed Michael Diehl on the practice squad. Hoar who stands at 6’2″ and weighs 215 pounds will obviously add size to the…

In their win against Colorado, third year player Stephen Keogh led the ‘Hawks with five goals in the first half. “It was a good win for us last week especially on the road in a tough building,” Keogh told us. “We came out…


Game Preview: Wings vs Swarm. Wings Aim to Swat the Swarm

February 23, 2014

Today the Philadelphia Wings (3-6) will face the Minnesota Swarm (1-7).  The Swarm are coming off a 14-12 loss last night to the Toronto Rock.  After three quarters the Swarm were down 13-4 before putting eight goals in the final quarter.  So the question here is did the Swarm shoot their load, or was this a start of momentum coming into this afternoon? The Swarm all season have either had…

Vyse, Wings, Prepare for Road Ahead

February 13, 2014

Last season Roger Vyse was a member of the Toronto Rock where he put up six goals in three games. He was a victim of the shortened rosters, and was cut by the Rock before the season. Vyse made his debut this weekend with the Philadelphia Wings after being signed last week. He was a part of the losses to Toronto on Friday night and Edmonton on Saturday. “It’s definitely…

Bandits Come Up Flat Against Wings

After the final horn had sounded and the game concluded against the Wings, the scoreboard told the final tale of the contest. The Philadelphia Wings emerged victorious with a 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bandits last night before a crowd of 13,564 at the First Niagara Center. What occurred last night for me seemed to bring up feelings of déjà vu, especially from those late games in the 2013 season…
