The New Jersey Storm (3-9) notched their second win in as many nights as they defeated the 2001 NLL Champion Philadelphia Wings (5-4) in front of 17,488 at the First Union Center.

After being knotted at 1-1 early in the first quarter, the Storm went on a scoring tear, adding five more goals within six minutes of each other to take a 6-1 lead after one period of play

After an opening goal at 1:14 of the second period by Philadelphia forward Tom Marechek, the Storm added three more, including a pair by forward Scott Stewart. The teams swapped the next two goals, before another late score at 14:14 by Wings forward Keith Cromwell. The Storm took a 10-4 half-time lead into the locker room.

New Jersey was held scoreless in the third quarter while the Wings added two more to close the gap to 10-6 after three quarters.

The Wings staged a late comeback but late goals by forwards Brian Bendig and Billy LeFeuvre put the game out of reach

The Storm were led by the efforts of Stewart, registering five points (3G 2A).

Marechek, Jeff Ratcliffe and Jake Bergey each recorded hat tricks in the losing effort

Storm net minder Matt Roik put in another stellar performance, turning away 41 of 52 Wings shots, while across the field Wings goaltender Dallas Eliuk stopped 34 Storm shots.

With the win, the Storm improve to 3-9 and move within one game of third place New York Saints in the NLL Eastern Division.
