Heading into Saturday, the Buffalo Bandits offense was searching for an identity.

Their 22 goals in two games ranked third worst in the National Lacrosse League, and they were just one of three teams without a victory this season.

Against Vancouver the Bandits erupted for 21 goals in a six point victory to secure their first win of the season.

Ryan Benesch and Mitch Jones each scored four goals, while Steve Priolo added a hat-trick.

After three straight home games to open the season, Buffalo travels to New England to battle the Black Wolves on Jan. 28.
