We prefaced that Georgia didn’t…


NLL: Bandits hold off cross-town rivals

January 17, 2024

The first installment in 2024 of the I-90 rivalry between the Buffalo Bandits and Rochester Knighthawks was a banger. These games always tend to be high intensity and a split crowd as Buffalo fans travel well. A snowstorm in the Buffalo area did affect some of the travellers, but there still was a sea of orange and black at Blue Cross Arena. This contest was as back-and-forth as it gets…


NLL: Seals split two road games in two days

January 15, 2024

The San Diego Seals had a busy 48 hours with two road games in two days. Let’s start with Friday night, as the Seals traveled to Las Vegas to take on the Desert Dogs. Las Vegas came in with everything to gain, and gain is what they did as they took down the visiting Seals, 10-8. Here’s the cliffnotes. The first quarter was a stalemate as both sides scored two…


NLL: Streaks stay alive; Toronto keeps winning & Halifax keeps losing

January 15, 2024

Halifax Thunderbirds’ coach Mike Accursi met the media frustrated. For the third straight game, his team outshot their opponents, dominated them in face-offs, and collected more loose balls. However, for the third straight time, they lost, this time 11-9 to the Toronto Rock at Scotiabank Centre on Friday night.  Halifax outshot the Rock 54-40, collected 78 loose balls to Toronto’s 62, and Jake Withers dominated face-offs, helping Halifax win all…


NLL: Bandits beat familiar foes

January 14, 2024

The Buffalo Bandits and Colorado Mammoth are no strangers to one another. The two clubs have faced off darn near 10 times over the course of the last three seasons, most notably in the 2022 and 2023 NLL Finals, where each team secured a championship. In front of 15,147 in Banditland on Friday, January 6, it was almost a mirror image of the week before for the Mammoth. If you…

NLL: Wild game ends in Colorado OT win over Vancouver

January 6, 2024

The Week 5 contest between the Vancouver Warriors and the Colorado Mammoth may have been the most wild game in recent history, ending in a 12-11 OT win for the Mammoth. I am going to try my best to portray this to y’all, but I highly suggest you rewatch this one. Let’s start from the top, and we’re sorry in advance, Vancouver faithful. Vancouver jumped out to a five-goal lead…


NLL: Roughnecks get first win of season in front of home crowd

January 4, 2024

For the first two games of the season, the Calgary Roughnecks agonizingly teased fans with the potential of how good they could be. In a Rochester, a scintillating offensive put up 10 first half goals before stalling in the second half and allowing the Knighthawks to squeak out a win. A four-goal effort by Tyler Pace in San Diego was wasted when the team went cold in the fourth and…

The youngster and his team, the Georgia Swarm, walked into KeyBank Center on Friday night and put on a show. In front of 16,763 fans, Georgia used only three goal scorers, and Dobson completely shut down the high-powered Bandits offense, walking out with a 9-8 win. Buffalo did win the faceoff battle…


NLL: Wings soar over Thunderbirds in OT win

December 30, 2023

The Philadelphia Wings were down but not out. Despite missing four players, being on a two-game skid, and never leading in this game until the final goal, the Wings found a way to win, beating the Halifax Thunderbirds 16-15 in overtime at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax.  The Wings were without Holden Cattoni, Blaze Riorden, Ryan Wagner and Curtis Romanchych. Cattoni and Riordan combined for 157 points last year and are…
