The Baltimore Thunder went to Joe Louis Arena Saturday night looking for revenge against the Detroit Turbos for last season's 14-12 loss in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League championship game.
But all the Thunder got was another disappointing loss as the Turbos rallied from a 5-1 first-quarter deficit to win, 20-13.
"We thought we knew their personnel well and would find a way to win," Thunder coach John Stewart said yesterday. "But their goalie, Ted Sawicki [46 saves, five assists], was the difference in the game. He's always given us problems and this time he held his ground well and made us shoot to the corners. We missed a lot of shots on breakaways."
