Knighthawks' Fourth-Quarter Comeback Falls Short
The Rochester Knighthawks stormed back in the fourth quarter but fell 16-13 to the New England Black Wolves tonight at Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Knighthawks scored six times over the final 15 minutes to get within two goals on three occasions. Joe Resetarits scored three of his team-high four goals in the fourth. His final tally with 2:16 to play made the score 15-13. The veteran forward finished the contest with seven points (4+3). Cody Jamieson and Kyle Jackson also had big nights as they posted six and eight points, respectively.
Jamieson, who finished with three goals and three assists, scored during the Knighthawks' 4-0 run which made it 12-10 with 12:54 to play. "Jammer" later sparked a two-goal surge in the final minutes. His dunk from behind the net made it 15-12, and he then picked up an assist on Resetarits' goal with under three to play.
Jackson contributed with two goals and six assists, while Mike Burke also chipped in with one goal and four helpers. In goal, Angus Goodleaf made 35 saves, and Warren Hill finished with three saves on four shots.
In two weeks, Rochester (2-6) will host its oldest rival, the Buffalo Bandits, on Friday, Feb. 22, as it throws it back to the first decade of Knighthawks lacrosse on Party Like it's 1995 Night. The fans can celebrate the freshest decade of all as they enjoy the musical hits from the '90s and other special themed promotions. The organization will also bring back the members of the 1995 team. Faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
