NLL: Wings pull off another OT win over Knighthawks

April 6, 2023

The game was summed up succinctly in a post-game interview with Mitch Jones. “We’re in a dog fight. We’re in a fight for our playoff lives.” Fortunately for the Philadelphia Wings, their 14-13 OT victory over the Rochester Knighthawks keeps them in playoff contention. Not only did they prevent Rochester from clinching a playoff spot, they kept themselves alive. On fan appreciation night, it was also a night of family…


NLL: Thunderbirds move ahead of Wings in East Conference standings after 14-10 win

March 31, 2023

The Halifax Thunderbirds soared into Philadelphia and came out with a huge 14-10 win on Saturday evening at Wells Fargo Centre. The game (which had a playoff vibe) was fast and physical. It came down to the little things that ended up making the difference in the game, including a controversial goal that wasn’t a goal – but then became a goal because the official didn’t blow the whistle in…


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: Riorden, Wings keep playoff hopes alive with OT winner

March 21, 2023

Who doesn’t love some Sunday afternoon lacrosse? I’ll even add to that: who doesn’t love a massive East Conference matchup with serious playoff implications? That’s exactly what we had in store Sunday afternoon in Rochester, New York. The Knighthawks were in third place in the East, and Philadelphia was in fifth. It would be interesting to see what kind of shape the Wings would be in, as they played Saturday…

NLL: Mitch Jones’ 14 points leads Wings over Riptide

March 5, 2023

Mitch Jones was like a kid in a candy shop at the Philadelphia Wings’ Saturday afternoon family-friendly lacrosse game. He dodged, he passed, he scored – and he did it a lot. His 14 points were a large reason Philadelphia ended up with the 19-12 victory over the New York Riptide. The game, at times, was not so “family-friendly” as three fights broke out throughout the game. Mitch Jones must…


NLL: Injury-plagued Bandits remain atop the East with OT win over Wings

February 20, 2023

It was “wing night” in Buffalo, New York on Saturday night. Years prior, it seemed ironic that Philadelphia came to town for these games, but now it seems like a good marketing ploy. I’ll take a single order of hot, please. The Bandits came in sitting atop the East Division, while Philadelphia was in the middle of the pack battling for playoff positioning. Buffalo won the other meeting between these…

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: Early-afternoon affair sees Rock solidly defeat Wings 14-5

January 23, 2023

Tom Schreiber had more points than the Philadelphia Wings did on Saturday afternoon, as he, his seven points, and the Toronto Rock rolled over the Philadelphia Wings 14-5. “He’s a great player,” recognized head coach Paul Day. “I think it’s time and space. You really need to take time and space away from him and that happens earlier when he doesn’t have the ball. I think that happened in the…
