It’s week 11 in the National Lacrosse League and the playoff positioning is starting to form with only a month and a half remaining in the regular season. After a two-week layoff, the NLL East Division-leading Buffalo Bandits return to the floor when they host the last place Minnesota Swarm in ever-hostile Banditland on Saturday night.
It’s the first time former Swarm Ryan Benesch will face the team that traded him away in the offseason to Buffalo, and it will be his chance to show his former team why they should have kept him. As a team, Buffalo will look to stay ahead of surging Rochester for first place in the NLL East Division. On the other side of things, the 2-7 Swarm will try and get back into the playoff race after winning two weeks ago in Philadelphia.
Date: Saturday, March 8
Start Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Buffalo, New York
Venue: First Niagara Center
