Knighthawks Heading To Playoffs With Win In Buffalo

April 21, 2013

The Bandits once again saw a game escape their grip, despite their early lead. Rochester rode a six to nothing streak in the first half on route to a 10-9 lead, giving the Knighthawks the second seed in the east and eliminating the Buffalo Bandits. This marks the first time the Bandits have missed the playoffs since 2002, two years before Darris Kilgour became the head coach in Buffalo. The…


Bandits and Knighthawks Battle For The Playoffs

April 20, 2013

This one is for all the marbles. Tonight the Bandits face-off against the Rochester Knighthawks in both team’s final game of the regular season. With the Edmonton Rush winning last week, all Buffalo needs to do to make it into the playoffs is win, but Rochester should be a worthy foe as they themselves do not want to go from champions one year to missing the playoffs the next. After…


Swarm Blow Out Bandits 21-7

April 7, 2013

The Bandits season continued to spiral out of control last night as they were tripled on the score sheet by the Minnesota Swarm. The loss was mathematically the worst in Bandits history and the most goals scored in Minnesota Swarm history. With Colorado and Rochester winning last night, the Bandits now sit alone at the bottom of the league with their 5-9 record. Philadelphia also has 5 wins, but has played one…


Bandits Desperate For Win In Minny

April 6, 2013

It seems that every week the Bandits are in a situation where they need a win or else their playoff hopes become more and more unlikely. This week their challenge is Minnesota, a team that is also fighting to not be the odd team out but also a team that has beaten the Bandits already this season. Buffalo’s shown us that every game, no matter who its against, can be…


Bandits Struggles Continue

April 3, 2013

After getting off to a solid 3-1 record early in the season, the Bandits have seen their season slowly fall apart. Now tied for the worst record in the NLL, the Bandits seem to really be in that rebuild that it looked like they may endure. The problems with the Bandits have depended on the day. Sometimes the defense looks horrendous, other times it seems that the team just can’t…


Bandits Hope For Victorious Toronto Visit

March 29, 2013

If you were hoping for the Bandits to start turning things around, Toronto is probably the last team you’d want them to play. Unfortunately for Buffalo that’s exactly who they have to play tonight in hopes of beginning to move in the right direction. Both these teams have something in common, getting embarrassed by the Edmonton Rush a week ago. The Bandits lost to the Rush 14-7 on Saturday in…


Rush Dominate Bandits To Catch Stealth

March 24, 2013

Once again the Bandits played poorly at home, and once again they left the floor on the losing end of things. After seeming to be down in every aspect of the game, the Bandits fell to 5-7 with their 14-7 loss to the Rush. The Bandits were out shot 63 to 42 and out loose-balled 96 to 76. It seemed that the Rush just hustled a tad more than Buffalo…


Mammoth Beat Bandits Second Time In A Row, 16-13

March 17, 2013

This certainly wasn’t the way the Bandits had hoped their home and home with Colorado would go. Before last weekend, Colorado was a lowly 2-7. It was looking like they would certainly be the team to miss the playoffs this season. However, they won both their games against the Bandits and have jolted life into their season. The Bandits put up a fight last night, but were never able to…


Bandits and Mammoth Square Off in Round Two

March 16, 2013

Once last week’s game ended, almost everyone’s minds quickly jumped to next week’s match-up. Once again the Colorado Mammoth and Buffalo Bandits face-off, this time in Denver. The league hopes that it doesn’t end the way last week’s game ended, with a 10 man brawl. All of the players involved besides Bandit David Brock have appealed their suspensions, so they will all be playing tonight. It will likely be the…


Bandits Release Wiles, Active Smith and Brownell

March 15, 2013

As rumored for the past few days, the Bandits have released forward Luke Wiles and placed him on the team’s practice roster. They have also announced that Hayden Smith and Kevin Brownell have been placed on the active roster. This season Wiles has struggled when compared to his previous numbers, scoring ten goals and ten assists in ten games. Six of those goals were scored in two of the games. Last season Wiles was…
