National Lacrosse League (NLL) Retro Game Of The Week

Philadelphia Wings vs. Buffalo Bandits from Jan 3, 1998.

A new League, and a new look for the Philadelphia Wings.

Losing Perennial All-Pro Gary Gait in the off-season to Baltimore had left a big enough hole for Wings General Manager Michael French to announce the 98 Season – “a year of rebuilding”. Little did he know the “rebuilding announcement” inspired team veterans to dig deeper and allowed room for new faces to excel.

Buffalo had John Tavaras, Darris Kilgour, and Troy Cordingley, to name just a few, while Philadelphia answered with Tom Marechek, Kevin Finneran, Steve Govett, and Jake Bergey.

The goaltending matchup…Dallas Eliuk for Philadelphia vs. Ross Cowie for Buffalo.

This game took place in the Marine Midland Arena in Buffalo.

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