Cannons in the NLL - Week 8

Pat Heim and Mitch Belisle took the field in Week 8 of the National Lacrosse League. Both players and their respective teams are in the midst of playoff races.

On Friday the Philadelphia Wings fell to the Edmonton Rush, 12-10. The Wings now share first place in the Eastern Division with the Toronto Rock. Pat Heim was held scoreless in the loss. The Wings will host the Rochester Knighthawks on Saturday at 7:00 pm.

The Minnesota Swarm earned its first road victory of the season in a 15-7 rout of the Washington Stealth. Mitch Belisle tallied his second assist of the season and recovered 5 loose balls for the Swarm. On Saturday, March 3, the Swarm will visit Calgary for a battle with the Roughnecks at 9:00 pm.

This weekend the Buffalo Bandits will return to the field for the first time since February 12. After starting the season with two wins, the team dropped four straight contests. Kevin Buchanan and the Bandits will try to put the losing streak behind them when the first-place Colorado Mammoth comes to town on Saturday at 7:00 pm.

Heim, Belisle, and Buchanan can be seen live on the NLL’s site:
