The Philadelphia Wings fought off the Buffalo Bandits for a 17-10 victory last night.
The game, bringing together the teams that had battled for the championship of the Major Indoor Lacrosse League for the last three years, drew 16,515 to the Spectrum.
The Wings (3-1) appeared en route to a runaway when they stormed to a 5-0 lead in the first 4 minutes, 15 seconds of play, getting two goals in the first 54 seconds. Buffalo, however, struggled back and drew to within 7-6 late in the second quarter.
Gary Gait scored five goals for the Wings, and John Nostrant added three. Troy Cordingley tallied three times for the Bandits.
