After an up-and-down weekend that saw the Buffalo beat Philadelphia 12-11 in dramatic fashion and lose to Georgia at home 14-9, the Bandits retain the No. 1 spot in this week’s NLL Power Rankings by a slim margin, as Georgia jumped No. 3 Toronto to come in at No. 2.
New England, who came in at No. 4 and Saskatchewan, who came in at No. 5 both had this past weekend off, but No. 6 Calgary downed the Rock at home 15-9 and climbed up the standings. And despite beating Colorado, San Diego fell to No. 7 (but was only one point behind the Roughnecks in the rankings, so you can tell how close everything was this week). Thanks to Colorado losing, both No. 8 Vancouver and No. 9 Rochester moved up a slot in the LaxAllStars NLL Power Rankings, as the No. 10 Mammoth and No. 11 Wings round out the table.
Looking towards this coming weekend, every single team plays, as Buffalo travels to Saskatoon to play the Rush in their barn, Georgia takes on Rochester in the only Friday night game, Toronto duels with the Knighthawks (the only team to play two games this weekend) on Saturday night, Colorado visits Calgary, and San Diego hosts the Wings. That’s six games in total this weekend, and although it isn’t the busiest weekend in league history, it definitely is the busiest in recent weeks. Make sure to check back next week to see who moves up and who slides down the NLL Power Rankings after this weekend’s action.
