BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) — Buffalo came out strong and played a complete game Saturday night at the First Niagara, beating the Minnesota Swarm 12-8. Mark Steinhuis led the Bandits with three goals and three assists. Dhane Smith contributed three goals and two assists. Ryan Benesch added two goals and three assists.
The Bandits led 9-5 at the half, giving them a comfortable lead heading into the second portion of the game.
Bandits head coach Troy Cordingley told Bandits.com “That’s what happens when we share the ball because we have such a creative bunch and we’re very talented that way,” Cordingley added. “When everybody’s touching it, and everybody’s a part of it, and everybody’s willing to do the seals and the pick-and-rolls, we had some nice plays early on.”
The Bandits will take on the New England Black Wolves April 4th at the First Niagara Center.
