The Washington Stealth (1-2) suffered their second straight loss of the young 2011 season on Friday night. A six-goal first half deficit was too much to overcome as the Minnesota Swarm (1-1) left the Comcast Arena with a 16-8 win over the defending National lacrosse League Champions. The Stealth got off to a good start, with Rhys Duch scoring the game’s first goal two minutes into the contest. But from there, the Swarm dominated the first half, due in large part to the play of forward Ryan Benesch and goaltender Nick Patterson. After Duch’s goal opened the scoring, the Swarm rattled off four straight goals, including back-to-back power play goals from Benesch and Aaron Wilson. Read more »
