BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Bandits are one win away from an NLL title! With Banditland behind them, John Tavares and company beat the Colorado Mammoth 15-14 in a game that came down to the wire on Saturday.

Three Bandits hat tricks from Tehoka Nanticoke, Josh Byrne, and Dhane Smith were the driving force behind the Bandits' offense. Nick Weiss scored the game-winning goal on a breakaway with less than a minute to go.

The best-of-three series heads to Colorado, with faceoff now scheduled for 8 p.m Saturday. It will air on ESPNU and ESPN+.

If necessary, game three would be back in Buffalo at KeyBank Center on June 18.
