PHILADELPHIA -- The Baltimore Thunder rolled into The Spectrum last night looking to earn respect in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League.What the Thunder found was a Philadelphia Wings team that was unwilling to give them any.The Wings opened a 9-2 lead in the first quarter en route to a 25-9 victory over the 0-4 Thunder in front of 13,483 fans.
