Cannons in the NLL - Week 2

March 18, 2016
Six members of the Boston Cannons – Mitch Belisle, Kevin Buchanan, Pat Heim, Bill McGlone, Paul Rabil and Kyle Sweeney – are playing in the National Lacrosse League this season. This past weekend was the start of NLL action for most of the Cannons.

The Philadelphia Wings suffered a hard loss to the Rochester Knighthawks, 22-12. Pat Heim was held scoreless for Philadelphia. He had only one shot on the night, but collected 6 loose balls. Newly acquired midfielder Bill McGlone did not play for the Wings.

Kevin Buchanan, Kyle Sweeney and the Buffalo Bandits topped the Toronto Rock, 14-10. Buchanan tallied 2 goals and 1 assist. Sweeney recovered 4 loose balls.

Paul Rabil and the Washington Stealth dropped a close game against the Calgary Roughnecks, 13-10. On 7 shots Rabil posted 1 goal and 1 assist. He came up with 7 loose balls.

The Minnesota Swarm, with Cannons captain Mitch Belisle, lost to the Colorado Mammoth, 20-14. Belisle scooped up 7 loose balls in the Swarm’s losing effort. Minnesota does not play again until January 28 th against Buffalo.

Most of the Cannons will be looking to bounce back from disappointing losses when NLL play resumes this weekend. Rabil’s Stealth will visit Heim, McGlone and the Wings on Saturday at 7:00 pm. The game will take place at the Wells Fargo Center. Buffalo will look to continue their winning ways against the Rochester. Buchanan, Sweeney and the rest of the Bandits will take on the Knighthawks at 7:30 pm on Saturday. Both games will be streamed live at http://new.livestream.com/nll.
