It is also a night to celebrate.

The Colorado Mammoth hosted Military Appreciation night and paid tribute to our men and women of the armed forces. Representing all branches of the military, these men and women were treated to a very special night. There were many honored throughout the game. Their stories were shown on the big screen as well as the fans going directly up and asking them for autographs. The children held them higher that night than the players on the field. And for good reason. This is a game that the players can come home from each night. Sometime that does not happen in the military. But yet they still put on their uniform daily and go out and do their job.

Buffalo Bandits who have a record of 2 wins and 1 loss, came to take on the Colorado Mammoth and they brought their full artillery. The Bandits were a team that could do no wrong Saturday night. The Colorado Mammoth fought their way through the trenches only to come up short of capturing the enemy. Final score was 16-9. But in defense of the Colorado Mammoth, they were playing on only four hours of sleep and they were coming into this game after playing four games in only nine days. Buffalo Bandits arrived in Denver on Friday and were able to have some long rest before the game.

Colorado forward Sean Pollock summed it up buy saying, "it's a tough league. They did not do us any favors by having us in Vancouver 24 hours before and then having to play after only four hours of sleep."

Buffalo Bandits knew this and took full advantage of Colorado's fatigue. Within minutes of the first quarter Buffalo jumped on a 4-0 lead. Buffalo Bandits defenseman Steve Priolo scored a hat-trick in the first quarter. You cannot do this with any team and expect to come out victorious.

Colorado Mammoth did fight back hard and at the end of the second quarter going into halftime, they were down by one point with a score of 7-6.

Unfortunately, that energy did not last. In the end the shots on goals were Buffalos Bandits 55 and Colorado Mammoth having 44.
