Last night the Buffalo Bandits welcomed the two-time NLL defending champions, Rochester Knighthawks, for an exciting match.
The Bandits started strong, taking a commanding lead over the Knighthawks but the rivals were able to pull within a goal with 19 seconds left. Luckily, Buffalo stayed strong until the very end to pull off an 11-10 victory.
Fans braved the single-digit cold weather and showed up in eclectic attire (to say the least). The stadium was illuminated in bright orange and fan participation must have been heard for miles. This will go down as a huge win for the Bandits with their next game also at home against the Toronto Rock next Saturday at First Niagara Center.
