With the Toronto Rock loss to the Rochester Knighthawks Saturday night, the Georgia Swarm (12-4) have secured a home playoff game in the East Division Semifinals. Their to-be-determined opponent will face the Swarm at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena on Monday, May 6. Faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
The Swarm will be either the No. 1 or No. 2 seed in the East Division. They are currently tied with the Buffalo Bandits for first in the NLL and hold the tiebreaker against the Bandits.
The Swarm punched their ticket back to their fourth-consecutive postseason with their 10th win of the season on March 15. After two more wins – the most recent coming Friday against the San Diego Seals – and the Rock loss tonight, the Swarm cannot finish worse than second in the East Division. That seeding guarantees they host the first round of the postseason.
