The Minnesota Swarm lacrosse team suffered their second consecutive loss last night, as they fell 12-10 to the Rochester Knighthawks on the road.â†µ
The Swarm had a 10-8 lead late in the third period of play, but the Knighthawks scored the last four goals of the game and held the Swarm scoreless in the fourth period to secure the victory. That allowed the Knighthawks to improve to 2-0 on the season against the Swarm.
All-Star forward Ryan Benesch led the way for the Swarm with four goals and an assist, and forwards Callum Crawford, Mat Giles, and Aaron Wilson combined for 13 assists on the night.â†µ
The loss dropped the Swarm's record to 3-3, which still has them in second place in the NLL Western Division, half a game behind the 4-3 Calgary Roughnecks.â†µ
The Swarm will play a rare back-to-back next weekend, as they'll have two games to contend with. The first will take place at the XCel Energy Center as the Swarm play host to the Boston Blazers, with the action starting at 7:30 PM Central time. They'll follow that up the next night by heading to the Pepsi Center in Denver to take on the Colorado Mammoth (the best team name in the NLL, in my humble opinion), with things getting started at 7:00 PM Central.â†µ
