The Buffalo Bandits earned a much-needed win on Sunday afternoon, and the winning margin came from a very unlikely source. Defender Mitch de Snoo scored only his second goal of the season - in overtime no less - to give the Bandits a 16-15 win over the New England Black Wolves in Uncasville, Conn. The goal came at 25 seconds of the extra session, tied for the second-fas…

The Buffalo Bandits’ gameplan should be a simple one for Sunday afternoon’s game with the New England Black Wolves (1 p.m., Radio 1520 AM) in Uncasville, Conn. They’d like to be ahead for a change after the first period. The Bandits take a 1-5 record and a three-game losing streak into the contest. In four of the losses, they’ve fallen behind by an 8-2 score.…

The Buffalo Bandits have been playing this season as if they’ve been using a shovel instead of a lacrosse stick at the start of their games. That’s because they keep digging themselves deep holes. Consider the amazing fact that the Bandits have fallen behind by an 8-2 score in four of the six games they’ve played this season. That’s a recipe for disaster, and…

The Buffalo Bandits' plight seems to grow more serious by the game, as little continues to go right for a team that played for a championship just last year. The Bandits effectively ruined their chances with a subpar first half, and fell to the New England Black Wolves, 14-11, in the KeyBank Center on Friday night. Buffalo fell to 1-5 on the season - matching the worst …

Chad Culp passed the first test of his return to Buffalo Friday morning when he arrived at the KeyBank Center for the morning shootaround - thanks to his new teammates with the New England Black Wolves. "The guys made sure I turned left in the hallway instead of going straight" to the Bandits locker room, the veteran said. Culp had been a member of the Bandits for si…

At this point in the Buffalo Bandits' season, with the team sitting at a disappointing 1-4, fans could use a little good news. Here's some: Craig England's offensive production in 2017 has caught just about everyone by surprise. He has scored five goals in three games. That's five more goals than he had scored since entering the league in 2014, admittedly in mostly b…

TORONTO - The Buffalo Bandits' problems are not merely starting to mount up. They have started to multiply. In a season that turned surprisingly sour right from the start, the Bandits played their worst game to date on Friday night. They dropped an 18-10 decision to the Toronto Rock in the Air Canada Centre to fall to 1-4. The loss was Buffalo's worst in almost two y…

The Buffalo Bandits' problems have reached serious levels. The Bandits dropped a 18-10 decision to the Rock in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on Friday night. They fell to 1-4, tying the worst five-game start in team history. That score was an accurate indicator of what happened. The Bandits fell behind quickly in this latest loss. Buffalo had numerous defensive br…

Matthew Bennett will be wearing a knee brace during Friday night's game for the Buffalo Bandits in Toronto against the Rock (7:30 p.m., Radio 1520 AM). It's something like a souvenir for the young player. He suffered a knee injury late last regular season that - much to his regret - forced him to miss the rest of the regular season and his team's run to the National Lac…

The Buffalo Bandits and New England Black Wolves couldn’t have played a much closer game than they did on Saturday night in Uncasville, Conn. The teams traded the lead back and forth, as neither team led by more than two goals. But the Black Wolves were the ones who scored the decisive goal of the game. With the score tied, 12-12, Kevin Crowley of New England complete…

Just when Brad Self thought he had found a home, he had to move. The National Lacrosse League veteran played the last five years with the Rochester Knighthawks, ending a somewhat nomadic journey through the sport. Then came the surprising trade to Buffalo last September. "Let's just say I'm happy to be here," Self said. "I enjoyed my five years there. I have some gre…

The Buffalo Bandits talked before Saturday’s game with Vancouver about the need for every player to step up offensively because of the loss of star forward Dhane Smith to an ankle injury. They took that literally. Eleven different players scored goals and 13 had points in the Bandits’ 21-15 win over the Stealth in the KeyBank Center. The biggest ones came from a …
