PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Wings had their worst performance of the season. In fact, at the end of the game, the players and head coach Paul Day heard the boo birds.

The Vancouver Warriors defeated the Wings 21-12 on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

With the loss, the Wings have now fallen to 1-6 at home this season. Two of the losses came in sudden-death overtime.

Before this contest, the Wings gave up a season-high 16 goals at home in January against the New York Riptide. The Riptide won 16-9 over the Wings on Sunday, January 7th.

The 21 goals at home were the most since the team came back into the NLL during the 2018-19 season.

The 1-6 record is also their worst record at home since the team returned. During the 2018-19 season, the team went 3-6 at home, which was their worst home record before this season.

The Wings fell to 5-8 overall. The Warriors fell to 5-9 despite the win.

Right now, both teams are not in the playoff. The Rochester Knighthawks have the final — and eighth overall — spot in the playoffs with their 6-6 record.

It was the first meeting between the teams in more than four years. Their last meeting came in January 2020.

Current Wings star Mitch Jones was a member of the Warriors in the last meeting. Jones was acquired by the Wings last season.

He had two goals and four assists in the last meeting. Despite Jones’ two goals, the Wings won the last contest 18-10.

There were seven members of the current Wings team, who also played in that 2020 game.

Keegan Bal nearly outscored the Wings entire offense by himself. He had eight goals in the contest.

Ryan Martel had four goals. Riley Loewen added three goals. Owen Grant, Kevin Crowley, Ryan Dilks, Brayden Laity, Brad McCulley, and Kyle Killen had a goal each.

Warriors goalie Aden Walsh received the win. He allowed 12 goals and made 34 saves.

Jones led the Wings with four goals against his former team. Holden Cattoni had three goals and Joe Resetarits added two goals.

Scott Dominey, Jack Jasinski, and Ben McIntosh also had one goal each.

Wings goalie Zach Higgins received the loss. He allowed 15 goals and made 21 saves.
