Its going to be a long flight home for Philly after getting taken to the wood shed by the Warriors and going  0-2 on the weekend.

Blaze Riorden gave the Wings a 1-0 lead 17 seconds into the game only to see the Warriors go on a nine goal run to end the first quarter and put it on cruise control the rest of the way. Good thing no-one was there to see it.

Keegan Bal led the Warriors with five goals and nine assists. Aaron Bold made 61 saves for the Warriors.

Wings penalty kill was a dumpster fire allowing the Warriors to go 5 for 5 with the man advantage.  Travis Baptiste rebounded from a poor performance at x the night before by going 31 for 34 at the x against  Zack Porter and Jarrett Toll.

Vancouver improves to 5-11 and Philadelphia falls to 3-14

Spectra has recently hired Brian Radle to be director of partnerships for the National Lacrosse League’s Philadelphia Wings.

According to Wings GM and Head Coach Paul Day defenseman Ryan Wagner will miss the rest of the season with an upper body injury and will undergo surgery for the upper body injury.

Wings defense continues to get depleted. Day needs to address the lack of depth across the board in the off-season.  No easy task with the league expanding by two more teams in New York and Rochester.
