The Waterdogs have yet to win a game this season. During their doubleheader weekend, the Waterdogs lost each game in overtime. 

They were defeated 12-11 by the Boston Cannons on Saturday afternoon. 

Rambo, who said he lives about 20 minutes away in Abington, Pennsylvania, played in front of a Philadelphia-area crowd for the first time in a while. He did not play for the Philadelphia Wings in the National Lacrosse League. 

According to sources, the star lacrosse player was reportedly in a contract dispute, which is why he did not play at the Wells Fargo Center in the winter. 

Colin Heacock, Matthew Dunn, and TJ Malone led the Whipsnakes with two goals each. Jackson Merrill, Kevin Winkoff, Jack Koras, and Colin Squires had a goal each.
Zed Williams and Mike Chanenchuk tallied a two-point goal each for the Maryland-based team.
