Cannons in the NLL - Week 4

Friday night featured a showdown between the Philadelphia Wings and the Buffalo Bandits. Kevin Buchanan (0 goals, 2 assists), Kyle Sweeney (0 goals, 1 assist) and the Bandits led the Wings 9-7 at the end of the third quarter. However, Pat Heim’s goal to open the fourth quarter changed the momentum and the Wings never looked back. Philadelphia outscored Buffalo 6-1 in the final 15 minutes on their way to handing the Bandits their first loss of 2012.

It was not long before the Bandits were handed their second loss of the season. In their home opener, the Minnesota Swarm topped the Bandits 19-11, in a game which included 149 penalty minutes and 10 game misconducts. Mitch Belisle tallied 1 assist for the Swarm before being ejected for fighting. Buchanan did not play for the Bandits. Sweeney recovered 2 loose balls.

Paul Rabil and the Washington Stealth, seeking their first win of the season, hosted the Edmonton Rush on Saturday night. Unfortunately for Rabil and the Stealth, it was Edmonton who got their first win of the year in a 16-5 rout. Rabil recorded 1 assist and 6 loose balls as the Stealth dropped to 0-3.
