December 30, 2016

Time is ticking until the Buffalo Bandits hit the floor for the first time for the 2017 National Lacrosse League season. For Buffalo, it’s a season where all expectations are geared towards making another run for the Champions Cup, which they lost by one goal last year to the Saskatchewan Rush.

Bandits Travel to Vancouver in West Coast Swing

March 5, 2016

The Buffalo Bandits will continue their west coast road trip tonight, visiting the Langley Events Centre to take on the Vancouver Stealth. Buffalo was able to score a much needed win against the Saskatchewan Rush in overtime last week, finally getting the team above the .500 hump.

Bandits Travel to Saskatchewan Looking to Get Back on Track

February 26, 2016

The Buffalo Bandits take a trip out to the prairies of Canada to take on the Saskatchewan Rush in Saskatoon. The Bandits are coming off a disappointing Week Eight where they lost back to back games to the Toronto Rock and Georgia Swarm. They’ll look to redeem themselves in this matchup, but against a Rush team that has won three out of their past four games it will be no easy task. Saskatchewan has been benefiting strongly…
