NLL: Bandits first home loss of season comes at hands of Jeff Teat and NY Riptide

April 11, 2022

All season long, the Buffalo Bandits have been on top of the mountain. Very rarely do other teams absolutely dominate the Bandits in every facet of the game.

February 8, 2022

The Halifax Thunderbirds defeat the New York Riptide 13-10 in the FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton, Ont. Friday night.  This was a home game for Halifax, but they played in Hamilton because Covid restrictions in Nova Scotia prevent games at any level to be played.  “Everyone is comfortable with each other, it makes playing in random environments pretty easy,” said Halifax forward Kyle Jackson. “Whether it is an away game, a…


NLL: Riptide lose heartbreaker to Bandits in OT

February 2, 2022

The New York Riptide deserved better. Seventeen goals should be enough to win a lacrosse game. But not, it seems, if you’re playing the Buffalo Bandits. The Bandits took the game 18-17, and remain undefeated at 5-0 while the Riptide are still stuck at just one win and in last place. After an amazing fourth quarter comeback that saw the Riptide score six goals in a row for a 17-14…
