(March 18) – Despite returning home to The Hive, the Georgia Swarm (4-7) found themselves on the losing side of the scoreboard Friday night, falling 11-4 to the Rochester Knighthawks (6-5) at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field.

The Swarm managed a season-low four goals, despite entering the night with the league’s second-most productive offense in the NLL. Rookie transition player Chad Tutton led the Swarm with two goals, while Lyle Thompson and Joel White tallied Georgia’s other scores.

“The great thing is we generated 82 shots at the goal, but when you miss the net as often as we did, you’re not even making the goalie make a save and that’s not good enough to win in this league on any night,” Swarm head coach Ed Comeau said.

Georgia appeared to have jumped out to an early 3-2 lead in the second quarter, however a score from Jesse King was overturned due to crease violation when the Knighthawks challenged the play. That no-goal helped swing momentum into Rochester’s favor who scored a few minutes later; the Knighthawks blanked the Swarm in the second quarter and entered halftime with a 5-2 advantage.

In the third quarter, Rochester continued to dominate, scoring four of the next five goals to build a commanding 9-3 lead. Tutton added his second score for Georgia with one minute remaining in the third on a nice dive shot.

“He’s an impactful player and we tried to get him some offensive shifts later in the game to spark us on offense but unfortunately we didn’t have a lot of other guys getting the job done,” Comeau said in regards to Tutton’s play.

With the loss, the Swarm now sits two games out of the third and final playoff spot in the East Division. Georgia will face Rochester one last time this season on the road on Saturday, April 16 during a back-to-back weekend. The regular season series between the two teams currently is tied at 1-1.

Friday night’s game will re-air on FOX Sports Southeast on Sunday at 11 p.m. ET; Mark Zinno and Brian Silcott have the call.

Georgia returns home next Friday for a 7:35 p.m. matchup against the Calgary Roughnecks (4-7) during Youth Lacrosse Night at The Hive. The following day, the Swarm is hosting a youth lacrosse camp with the Thompson Brothers, Lyle & Miles Thompson.
