Bandits-Lumberjax pics

In the midst of a 2-game losing streak, the Buffalo Bandits had little room for error in the minds of a fanbase that is used to disappointment thanks to the Bills and the Sabres. In fact, in New York's Madison Square Garden, the Buffalo Sabres were working to end their own playoff hopes this very night while the Bandits were working to end their losing skid. After falling behind the visiting Portland Lumberjax by a score of 2-1 and showing little signs of offensive life in the first half with a 5-3 halftime lead, the Bandits made the visitors long for the last game they played in HSBC Arena. You see, the last time the Lumberjax showed up in Buffalo, they kept the game close in a 14-13 loss to the Bandits in the 2008 Edge NLL Championship Game. This night though, after a 3rd quarter goal brought the score to 5-4 in favor of the Bandits, the Lumberjax were shut out the rest of the night in a 14-4 rout as the Bandits showed the fans of Buffalo how to enjoy a win.
But this site is less about the games themselves than it is about the dancers and cheerleaders who cheer on Buffalo's teams and the Bandettes more than did their part to keep the crowd entertained as well. Prior to the game, they signed autographed posters for fans coming into the game at the top of the east bank of escalators. After rushing down to the locker room at 7 to get ready for the game, they came out onto the field for a series of performances during each intermission as well as keeping the fans near section 113 entertained all game long with their dance routines.

Coming up next, the Bandettes will be back at HSBC Arena on March 28th as the Bandits face off against the New York Titans, a team that could be very well-rested as they haven't played since March 1. Prior to the game, the Bandettes will be signing autographs at the top of the east bank of escalators from about 6pm-7pm. Show up early to get a place in line as they do need to cut off the line prior to 7 so they can get ready for the game. Also, watch for a 2nd poster, different from the one they've been signing all season long, that may be out for autographs this game.
