He came up clutch and lived up to his moniker "Great Dhane", scoring three times in the fourth quarter to set the NLL single season scoring record and lift the Bandits to a 15-13 win over rival Rochester on Saturday.

Dhane Smith now stands alone in lacrosse history with 131 points in a season.  He finished four goals and four assists to pass the record set by Shawn Evans in 2015.

The Bandits improved to 12-5 to tie a franchise record for most wins in a season.  However they were unable to lock up the East Division after New England thumped Georgia on the road 21-11.

Buffalo and New England meet in the Bandits' season finale separated by just 1.5 games in the division standings.

After facing Buffalo on April 30th, the Blackwolves will play Rochester on May 1st before the postseason begins.
