NLL: Knighthawks clinch playoff spot (finally!) with win over Swarm

April 25, 2023

Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York played host to a monster East Conference matchup Saturday night. The Knighthawks welcomed the red-hot Georgia Swarm to town. Going in, Rochester sat in third place in the East and Georgia was fighting for that fourth playoff spot. To say this was going to be fun would be an understatement. Rochester used eight different goal scorers to propel themselves to a 12-10 victory…

NLL: Thunderbirds suffer worst loss since moving to Halifax

April 4, 2023

The Halifax Thunderbirds suffered their worst loss since moving to Halifax three years ago on Sunday afternoon, falling 17-7 to the Georgia Swarm at Scotiabank Centre. “It was an embarrassing effort,” said Thunderbirds captain Cody Jamieson. “I said it on the bench in between the quarters that it was an embarrassing effort. The effort wasn’t there tonight right from the get-go. Excuses are for cowards, I told them. (Georgia) was…


Cole gets hot, Swarm stay hot to beat Riptide twice in a week 

April 2, 2023

Week 18 action started off from Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia as the Swarm welcomed the New York Riptide to town for game two of their home-and-home. Georgia has sneakily been playing their best lacrosse of the season and continues to climb in the standings. New York still has arguably the MVP front-runner in Jeff Teat, so anything can happen. Last week I spoke for most and said a…


NLL: Georgia buzzes out of Philly with a W on Bark in the Bowl day

March 21, 2023

The Georgia Swarm buzzed into Philadelphia on Saturday morning and ended up with the 13-12 win. Bark in the Bowl (a special day where fans are encouraged to bring their puppers) became a dog fight, with the scrappiest team getting the bone (win). It was the seventh consecutive time these two teams have played to a one-goal finish. Things were off to a slow start before Joe Resetarits found the…


NLL: Fields has 10 points in Knighthawks’ high-scoring affair

March 14, 2023

When you watch a lacrosse game, do you like the goal scoring? Or are you a fan of the defense and goaltending? If your answer was the latter, look away now (don’t actually, please keep reading!). The Sunday afternoon matchup between the Rochester Knighthawks and Georgia Swarm was an absolute shootout. Georgia came in on a two-game winning streak and needed to continue that for any chance to get into…


NLL: Swarm get long-awaited first win after huge games from Kew, Thompson

February 27, 2023

Georgia swarmed their way to their fist victory of the season as they upset the Albany FireWolves 20-4 in a game that was only close in the first quarter. The locker room must have been as loud as Gas South Arena, as Georgia recorded its first victory of the season. For the Swarm, it was an offensive showing that was long past-due. However, it wasn’t an effort from all of…


NLL: Rock take second consecutive game over Swarm

February 22, 2023

In just over three minutes of post-game availability, Toronto Rock head coach Matt Sawyer used the word ‘good’ nine times; four in reference to being good every night. His team was good in the second half, using a nine-goal run to down the Georgia Swarm in back-to-back weeks 16-7. Yes, they scored nine goals from six different players in a twelve and a half minute span. But, it followed a first…


NLL: Rock eke out victory in Georgia to keep Swarm winless

February 14, 2023

Over their five-game win streak, the Toronto Rock have been rolling over teams. That was not the case Friday night as the winless Georgia Swarm battled back from a 7-2 deficit to scare the new Eastern Conference leaders; but in the end, Toronto extended their streak to six straight with an 11-10 victory. Toronto wasn’t lulled into a false sense of security by Georgia’s record. Both Tom Schreiber and Josh…


NLL: Mammoth come out with energy and rally to beat Swarm on Friday night

February 5, 2023

Chris Wardle did not mince words on Friday night. “We knew we came out slow last game, (a 13-9 loss to San Diego). We knew we had to come out with energy,” Wardle said. The Colorado Mammoth did just that, leading 3-1 after the first quarter against the Georgia Swarm. They would trail for less than four minutes, claiming a 13-10 victory over the still winless Swarm. Georgia took that…
