The Philadelphia Wings had a little holiday magic at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night as Christmas came early in the form of a 14-12 win against the New York Riptide. It was a hard toss up as to which Philadelphia player was the biggest present this game, but it came down to three: Goalie Zach Higgins’ ability to keep the team in the game while Kevin Crowley wowed…

December 6, 2021

First and foremost, Kiel Matisz will be fine, according to Paul Day. The Philadelphia Wings head coach and general manager updated the media on Matisz’s status during a post-game press conference.

Editorial: A tribute to Rocco Granato

January 5, 2021 I met Rocco Granato only once; he and his wife Jackie came to Toronto last year for a Rock/Wings game. I didn’t get a picture with him at the time, and when I realized later that I should have, I thought “next time!” knowing he was a frequent traveller when it came to lacrosse. But there won’t be a next time. Rocco tragically passed away on December 29 from…


ILWT Feature: No more Miller time in Philadelphia

December 16, 2020

Brandon Miller retired from the National Lacrosse League much like he began his lacrosse career – quietly making an impact and moving on to do great things.
