Rochester’s Shawn Evans scored at 4:23 of overtime to give the Rochester Knighthawks a hard-fought 15-14 overtime victory tonight over the first-place Buffalo Bandits (7-3) at The Blue Cross Arena. With the win, in front of a season-high 9,134 fans, Rochester (4-5) moved into sole possession of the fourth and final playoff spot in the East. “It felt good,” Evans said about the winner. “We all played a good team game out there and came up with the ‘W.’” Evans finished the night with 10 points (4+6) to give him 32 points (14+18) in his last three games. Craig Point also chipped in four goals and one assist and Mac Allen recorded three assists, seven loose balls and 25 faceoff wins. Pat OToole improved to 4-2 in a 21-save effort. John Tavares led the Bandits with four goals and three assists. The NLL’s leading scorer, Mark Steenhuis, was limited to just one goal and two assists. Former Knighthawk Mike Accursi was also held to one goal, but it was a big one as he tied the game at 14. Goalie Ken Montour made 41 saves in a relief appearance. The win was the seventh overtime game in the 35 regular-season games between the two teams. It was also the 11th time that a game between the Knighthawks and Bandits was decided by one goal.
