The Colorado Mammoth notched their second win of the season Saturday night, beating the Philadelphia Wings at Wells Fargo Center 12-10.
The win was the Mammoth’s first game against the NLL expansion franchise and marks the only meeting between the Mammoth and Wings this season.
Mammoth sharpshooter Ryan Benesch — who is tenth on the league’s top-ten all-time points list with 969 regular-season points — recorded game high in points, scoring two goals and adding seven assists for a strong nine-point night.
Benesch has not posted seven assists in a game since May 2015. Notably, Benesch was named All-Pro First Team for the second time in 2015.
