Twitter Reactions: NLL Week 7

Twitter Reactions is back for the National Lacrosse League‘s Week 7 action-packed weekend. See the highlights, opinions and moments you may have missed from this past weekend in the NLL.

Twitter Reactions: Toronto Rock v. Philadelphia Wings

Toronto got down early in the first quarter:

Dan Lintner had this garbage goal that was B-E-A-UTIFUL:

Philly fans were out for blood after this hit on a Wings player by Kieran McArdle:

Aaaaaaand the Rock sealed the 13-12 victory with this goal by Rob Hellyer:

Twitter Reactions: Rochester Knighthawks v. Buffalo Bandits

One notable play from the night was this pretty behind-the-back pass play by the Buffalo Bandits:

And this impressive goal from Jackson:

Austin Shanks had an incredible night, getting the sock trick and more as he finished with seven goals and an assist on the evening:

LAS’ Evan Schemenauer voiced his approval of Shanks’ performance in his own way:

Buffalo fans were a little bit salty…:

The game was incredibly physical, as there were 68 minutes of penalties on 31 offenses. However, Rochester poured it on late to walk away with the 18-13 win.

Twitter Reactions: Colorado Mammoth v. Vancouver Warriors

While the Colorado Mammoth and Vancouver franchises have had some great battles over the years, it seems this was what was remembered the most about recent matchups:

Anyway, there was this sweet play by the Mammoth in the first half:

Also, can we pause for a minute to wonder… what?

This play was just downright impressive. Seriously. Big fan:

Ian Hawksbee also moved into the top 10 in all-time looses balls in the NLL:

Wardle had this quick finish to help out the Mammoth:

Joey Cupido almost sealed the game with 1:17 remaining on the clock, but the goal was called back due to a crease violation:

Eric Penney then made a critical save in the final seconds to send the game into overtime to give Vancouver a chance to get their first win at home this season:

After two insane shots that hit off the post, Logan Schuss buried the game-winner for the Warriors’ first home win this season:

But the real MVP of the night was the $5 beer being served in Rogers Arena:

Twitter Reactions: Saskatchewan Rush v. Georgia Swarm

In Georgia on Sunday, Lyle Thompson struck just seconds into the game:

Georgia poured it on early, jumping out to a 7-1 lead during the first half:

Georgia took a 7-2 lead going into halftime.

However, the Rush would start to make a comeback. This almost-goal was called back, and helped kept the Rush in the game:

Georgia’s Connor Sellars would seal the win with a late goal with 1:08 remaining in the game:

Georgia rebounded nicely from their back-to-back losses last week against the defending champs:

Twitter Reactions: Buffalo Bandits v. New England Black Wolves

Buffalo jumped out to an early 2-1 lead in what was an early tight battle:

However, no one was really able to watch much of the first quarter as B/R Live experienced technical difficulties:

People were not happy:

You get the idea.

Regardless, Bandits took a 6-2 lead during the second quarter:

A few fans weren’t happy that the Black Wolves and Bandits colors were so similar. Because, fashion!

But, it didn’t seem to matter as the Bandits ran away with the 15-5 victory:

Oh yeah, this happened, too:

One do-gooder did a good deed, so we wanted to give them a shoutout:


Correction: An earlier version of this article referred to the Vancouver Warriors’ home field as the Langley Events Center. 
It has since been corrected to the proper name of Rogers Arena. Sorry, old habits die hard.
