Game Notes

  • Kevin Ross and Andrew Watt served as assistant captains for this game.
  • Ryan Benesch led the Swarm with four goals and three assists. He now has 153 goals in his career. Benesch has 10 goals to lead the team.
  • Benesch now has 200 points in his Swarm career, 4th in team history. He also has 85 goals with the Swarm tying Aaron Wilson for 4th in team history. He can move into 3rd with two goals passing Chad Culp.
  • Jordan MacIntosh earned his first ever NLL and Swarm hat trick.
  • Jamie Shewchuk's six poitns were the most for him in a single game with the Swarm.
  • Second straight game that Jeff Gilbert was ejected. With two game misconducts already, one more will mean an one-game suspension. The five minute high sticking in the third on Gilbert resulted in two Knighthawk goals, the difference in the game. Bascially our most experienced defender has only played five of the last eight quarters.
  • Swarm will need to clean up better on rebounds in front of their net for next weekend.
  • The Swarm have been outscored 19-9 in the fourth quarter while outscoring the opponent in each of the first three quarters. Each opponent this year has outscored the Swarm in the fourth.
  • The Knighthawks have won 5 in a row against the Swarm.
