BUFFALO, NY (February 20, 2013) --- The National Lacrosse League today announced that Buffalo Bandits goaltender Anthony Cosmo has been named NLL “Defensive Player of the Week” for Week 7 of the 2013 NLL season.
Cosmo made 54 saves on 60 shots this past Saturday against the Rochester Knighthawks, backstopping the Bandits to a 10-6 victory at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester New York.
