How the Wells Fargo Center sounds when the Wings Score a goal

The Wings would take a 3-1 lead at end of 1st quarter. The passing the Wings were making was on point and good defense.

One of the exciting things that you see in the National Lacrosse League is the physical play and fighting that happens

The Wings would take a 6-2 lead and Panther City looked confused could they make the changes to make this game interesting in the 2nd half?

To answer everyone’s question YES Panther City came out and made the Wings play sloppy and make costly mistakes and would take a 10-8 lead late in the 4th quarter, the Wings would respond back and Blaze Rioden tied the game at 10 with 6:13 left

A Crowd of 10,234 would see the Wings put up a good fight but it was not enough as Panther City comes into South Philadelphia for the 12-10 win.
