Those who needed a bit of indoor lacrosse in their lives could have gone to Turning Stone Casino in Verona on Sunday.
There the second annual Bowhunter Cup was played. The Iroquois Nationals beat Team USA, 14-13, in what was said by observers to be a good, competitive game.
Some of the Buffalo Bandits played a role in the contest. Brett Bucktooth had a hat trick for the Iroquois team. Roger Vyse, Brandon Francis, Angus Goodleaf, Tom Montour and top draft choice Jeremy Thompson -- in addition to some others whose rights are owned by the team -- were also in the lineup for the Nationals, while Duane Jacobs and Ron Henry were coaches.
The series is now 1-1. No attendance figure apparently was announced, which is a little curious.
