Twitter Reactions: NLL Week 4

This week on Twitter Reactions, we’re highlighting Week 4 of the NLL season. We’re bringing you the best Twitter reactions and posts from accounts around the National Lacrosse League. It was an exciting week as always in the NLL. Time to dive in to Twitter Reactions!

The week kicked off with the Philadelphia Wings taking on the Toronto Rock, as Toronto picked up the crazy overtime 11-10 victory (more on that later).

The Georgia Swarm would then take on the Vancouver Warriors on Saturday.

Fans that attended the game seemed to have a great time, including those attending the Saturday’s games for the first time:

Although attendance didn’t seem too high at the game (see picture):

Atlanta Falcons’ reporter Kelsey Conway attended, however, and seemed to enjoy herself:

Vancouver would tie things up at two on a goal from the Warriors’ Keegan Bal, who showed some nimbleness around the crease:

Brendan Bomberry had an incredible diving goal for the Swarm:

And Jordan McBride got in on the action on a nice little play for the Warriors:

But the biggest goal of Saturday night had to be Lyle Thompson’s game-clinching goal with just over a minute to play in the fourth quarter, as the Swarm took home the 10-8 win with this beautiful play:

However, this goal from Adam Jones to grab the win in overtime over the Philadelphia Wings may have been the biggest highlight from the weekend as the Rock defeated the Wings 11-10:

There was also some humor involving the famous Buffalo Bandits B-O-X chant for opposing teams’ penalties:

Matt Vinc also became the all-time leading saves leader in the National Lacrosse League, surpassing Anthony Cosmo. Vinc would finish with 55 saves, only allowing four.

People from across the league congratulated Matt Vinc on the accomplishment:

And finally, in the nightcap for Saturday, the defending-champion Rush took on the expansion franchise San Diego Seals in what was an exciting game.

Before the game, the Rush raised their 2018 championship banner much to the delight of fans:

Mark Matthews had this laser-like shot to end the first half to put the Rush up by one.

The Rush would end up winning the game 16-12.
