National Lacrosse League (NLL) Retro Game Of The Week

Rochester Knighthawks vs.  Minnesota Swarm

It’s almost the post season and Rochester is still fighting for a playoff spot.  They have a tough task coming into the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, where the Swarm hadn’t lost all year.

The Knighthawks had John Grant Jr., Scott and Shawn Evans, Shawn Williams, Steve Toll, and Ken Millin, while the Swarm countered with Andy Secore, Ryan Ward, Craig Point, Sean Pollack, and Chad Culp for offensive power.

The coaching match-up was Ed Comeau for Rochester versus Duane Jacobs for the Swarm.

It was Pat O’Toole in net for the Knighthawks against Nick Patterson for Minnesota.  Both goalies were phenomenal in this game!

Could Rochester pull it together in this game, or would the Swarm remain undefeated at home for the season?

Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety!
