The Bandits season continued to spiral out of control last night as they were tripled on the score sheet by the Minnesota Swarm. The loss was mathematically the worst in Bandits history and the most goals scored in Minnesota Swarm history.
With Colorado and Rochester winning last night, the Bandits now sit alone at the bottom of the league with their 5-9 record. Philadelphia also has 5 wins, but has played one less game than Buffalo. Philadelphia owns the tiebreaker if the two teams were to end the season with the same record.
The game is the Bandits sixth straight loss and now means that Buffalo will have two consecutive losing seasons for the first time in franchise history.
For Buffalo there isn’t much else to say besides the season seems to be slowly falling apart.
With Colorado defeating Edmonton, the victory was vital for Minnesota to stay ahead of the Mammoth in the standings. Now at 6-7, the Swarm are fighting to make it to the playoffs. They are playing some of their best lacrosse of the season and could be a hot team heading into the postseason if they do make it.
The Bandits’ challenges don’t get any easier, as they have to face the Washington Stealth on the road next weekend. Minnesota faces off with Philadelphia today in a game that Bandits fans should certainly keep an eye on.
