As the National Lacrosse League enters its second week of play in the 2014 schedule, it's time to have a quick look backwards and check out the top plays of Week 1.

Three games were played on the first weekend of the season. The Philadelphia Wings beat the Buffalo Bandits 17-13 in the first game, the defending champ Rochester Knighthawks took out the Minnesota Swarm 8-6 and the Edmonton Rush upended the Colorado Mammoth 13-10.

As with every week of the NLL schedule, there were plenty of highlights that rival the excitement of any other sport in any other league. 

Among the big moments were first overall draft pick Logan Schuss scoring the first goal of his career for the Swarm, Jordan Hall of the Wings scoring four goals in five minutes, Anthony Cosmo making a huge save for the Bandits and John Grant Jr. scoring on a crease dive for the Mammoth.

So sit back, relax and enjoy these highlights to get you fired up for Week 2 action. It begins on Friday, Jan. 3, when the Calgary Roughnecks visit the Toronto Rock. The second and final game of the weekend features the Vancouver Stealth facing the Mammoth in Colorado on Saturday, Jan. 4.
