NLL: Double wins for Bandits in Week 9

February 1, 2023

It’s never easy to play back-to-back nights in the NLL, and that is exactly what the Buffalo Bandits had in front of them this past weekend. Friday night they were in Philadelphia and came out with a win. Saturday night they were in Uniondale, New York to take on the New York Riptide. Buffalo sat in second place in the East Division and the Riptide were coming in second from…


NLL: Wings retire Finneran’s number but can’t get the win

January 30, 2023

The Buffalo Bandits came into Philadelphia and nabbed a 13-9 win over the Wings on Friday night. In a game that seemed eerily reminiscent of their last game (a loss to Toronto), Philadelphia broke down in the second half. Buffalo snagged the win. The stadium was roaring with excitement as fans celebrated the retirement of Kevin Finneran’s number 11. The players seemed to feed off the fans. However, like the…


NLL: Knighthawks use big fourth quarter to remain unbeaten

January 24, 2023

Who doesn’t love a battle of the I-90 to get your Friday night going? To make that even more juicy, the Rochester Knighthawks came in as the only remaining unbeaten team in the NLL. Across from them were their rivals from just about an hour away, the Buffalo Bandits. Buffalo came in at 4-1, which had them in second place in the East Division. Blue Cross Arena was deafening for…


NLL: Byrne, Bandits take game two of home and home with Swarm

January 17, 2023

Banditland sure knows how to party! Fourteen thousand, one hundred and eighty nine raucous fans came to see the boys in black and orange on Saturday night. The Georgia Swarm were in town with a score to settle from last Saturday. The Bandits went down to Gas South Arena last weekend and stung the Swarm 18-9, so presumably Georgia wanted to give it right back. The game from this Saturday…


NLL: Bandits get big win for weather-ravaged Buffalo

January 2, 2023

It’s no surprise to anyone that wintertime in Buffalo, New York can be quite nasty. But this past week leading up to Friday night’s showdown with Halifax was another level. Snow, wind and bone-chilling temperatures all caused blizzard-like conditions in the Western New York area. Some even said that this topped the Blizzard of ‘77 (if you know, you know). With that, came people getting stranded, having no power, or…


NLL: Bandits take early-season victory over Rock on Teddy Bear night

December 21, 2022

An NLL Championship is the annual goal for the Toronto Rock. Last season, the Buffalo Bandits denied them the opportunity, winning both playoffs matchups by one goal. On Saturday night, it was the reigning Eastern Conference Champions gaining the upper hand in the historic rivalry once again with an 11-8 victory. Buffalo jumped out to an early 3-0 lead with Dhane Smith and Tehoka Nanticoke scoring before the first media…


NLL: FireWolves, Jamieson spoil Bandits home opener

December 6, 2022

The Buffalo Bandits kicked off their 2022-2023 season at home Saturday night at KeyBank Center. Their interstate rival, the Albany FireWolves, were in town and there were high expectations for the boys in orange and black. After a heartbreaking loss in game three of the NLL Finals last year, Buffalo had high hopes for this fresh season and looked to start this year the same as last. Well, not if…


NLL: Bandits gearing up for another run at league title

November 9, 2022

The Buffalo Bandits started the 2021-22 season perfectly. Literally. They were 6-0 to start the year before suffering their first loss February 12th in Toronto. In that 6-1 stretch, Buffalo beat teams like Calgary, Rochester, Toronto and New York, which was an overtime thriller at Nassau Coliseum. Their offense was red hot, defense was stifling, oh, and they had one of best goalies in the world, in Matt Vinc. Following…


NLL: MVP Ward backstops Mammoth to NLL championship title

June 21, 2022

Game three of the NLL Finals was live from Banditland on Saturday night at KeyBank Center. Sixty minutes to decide the season. It had been over 5,000 days since both the Buffalo Bandits and/or the Colorado Mammoth have hoisted an NLL Cup, so this was going to be a treat. Not sure if it was mind games, or something popped up, but we almost saw Eli McLaughlin for game three….


NLL: Colorado roars back to force game deciding game three in NLL Finals

June 13, 2022

It was do-or-die for the Colorado Mammoth in game two of the NLL Finals on Saturday night. If that wasn’t enough pressure going in, only a few hours before the game, it was announced that dynamic forward Eli McLaughlin was placed on the IR. Huge blow to the Mammoth, right? Wrong. In front of 10,082 of the Loud House faithful, the Mammoth were led by Zed Williams and Connor Robinson….
