CALGARY, AB — It’s now 3 weeks that are in the books for the 2017 National Lacrosse League season.

And as you might guess, there is plenty on the minds of players and coaches as preparations begins for Week 4. Let’s take a look at what they’re saying.

“Going on runs is huge in this league and being able to anchor down during that time is great. It was going to take 60 minutes to win this game and I thought we played the whole 60.”

_ Calgary goalie Frankie Scigliano, to, after his team’s 14-10 win over Vancouver.


“Sometimes the ball goes in, sometimes not. I was getting a lot of open looks and that’s a lot to do with my teammates. This is the best offensive game we’ve played as a unit in a couple of years.”

_ Calgary forward Curtis Dickson, to the Calgary Sun, after scoring 6 goals in his team’s 14-10 win over Vancouver.


“I don’t know what it is, but we’ve been super flat off the hop in our first two games. The bad part is, these games are at home.”

_ Buffalo Bandits forward Ryan Benesch, to, after Saturday’s 18-14 loss dropped the Bandits to 0-2.


“When you start to play desperate, take chances and work a little harder, you’re rewarded. If we had that effort the entire game, things would be different. It’s a step in the right direction, but five good minutes isn’t going to win the game.”

_ Buffalo Bandits coach Troy Cordingley, to, after the Bandits had a late run in Saturday’s home loss to Georgia.


“We’re happy to be 2-0. But things can change quickly in this week. You can’t figure out what’s going to happen from week to week. So we’ll worry about the Swarm.”

_ Georgia Swarm coach Ed Comeau, to the Buffalo News, after Saturday’s 18-14 win over Buffalo that improves Georgia’s record to 2-0.


“Everyone had to do their job. No one was trying to do too much … It was one of the most exciting games that I’ve played in. A lot of ups and downs. It was loud. It was a lot of fun.”

_ Tom Schreiber, Toronto Rock forward, to the Toronto Sun after Saturday’s 13-11 win over the Saskatchewan Rush.


“We had a big hill to climb. Once we figured out that we needed to work as hard as (the Rock), then we got back in the game. We need to learn from that … we need to be a whole lot better.”

_ Saskatchewan Rush coach Derek Keenan, to, after Saturday’s 13-11 loss to the Toronto Rock.
