The Bandettes at the Bandits-Wings Game

Coming home after a road win in Toronto, the Buffalo Bandits had a perfect opportunity to grab a share of 1st place in the NLL East with a win over the Philadelphia Wings. Early on, it looked like that was exactly their intention as they went to the half with a 7-2 lead. But the visiting Wings had other plans as they pulled out a tie with 3.7 seconds left to force overtime where they put a one-timer past Cosmo 2:14 into the extra session to leave Buffalo with a 11-10 win over the hometown Bandits.

While the Bandits fell apart in the 2nd half, their better looking sisters, the Bandettes, did quite the opposite with a new-style dance performance during 3rd intermission that drew as loud an ovation as their always popular spelling routine at the end of their 1st intermission performance.

Prior to the game, I stopped by Cobblestone where L.B.'s line was on hand selling raffle tickets and greeting fans before heading over to the FNC where Kirsten's line was posing for photos and signing their new posters for the fans.

For the Bandettes, it was about more than their performances as, in addition to their 2013 posters now available, it was old home week of a sort. In addition to Ashley (2010-12), putting in appearances to see their old squadmates were Danielle W (2011-12) and Jessica H (2008-11). And with Bandettes director Jaclyn out after recently giving birth, former director Erin J stepped in to help Erin Y with longtime Bandettes alum and friend to the Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog Meghan F (2006-10) lending a hand as well.

Next up for the Bandettes, they're back at the First Niagara Center on March 9th as the Bandits play host to the Colorado Mammoth!
