Philadelphia Wings Recap: Slow Start hurts Philly in loss to San Diego

Philadelphia: As we know, during any season you find out what type of team you have. That is what we are finding out with the Philadelphia Wings as they currently stand at 2-3 on the season and were looking to get back to .500 on the season against the San Diego Seals on Saturday Night at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia. The Wings’ last game was on January 7, a loss to New York Riptide at the Wells Fargo Center.

This game would also mark the Philadelphia Wings debut of Nick Rowlett.


During one of the timeouts in the first half, the Philadelphia Wings would give a tribute to Trevor Baptiste, who played for the Wings for four seasons and now plays for San Diego.

San Diego would jump all over the Wings in the first half for a 7-3 lead at halftime. There were multiple times that the Wings had sloppy passing and they were not getting quality shot attempts.

What could the Wings do to get back into the game to make things more interesting in the second half? The answer was shown in their play as they would score eight goals, with one of those goals coming from Joe Resetarits.

This game would come down to the final seconds with the Wings having multiple chances to score the game-tying goal to force overtime. The crowd of 8,500 would see the Wings fall short, however, due to their slow start.

San Diego would come into South Philly and walk out with a 12-11 win.
