Thunder in review


* WHAT'S AHEAD: The Thunder will meet the Detroit Turbos for the Major Indoor Lacrosse League championship April 6 (8 p.m.) at the Baltimore Arena. The Thunder earned the right to stage the title game by attracting 10,265 for its match with the Philadelphia Wings Saturday night, thereby outdrawing the Turbos for the season. The championship site was determined by regular-season home attendance.

Saturday's crowd was the Thunder's largest of the year. After it was announced to the crowd at halftime that Baltimore would be the championship host, 980 tickets were sold to the title game.

* WRAPUP: The Thunder (6-4) lost to the Wings, 21-16, in its regular-season finale despite John Nostrant's five goals and two assists. John Tucker scored five goals for the Wings and was named game MVP. The game was tight until midway through the fourth quarter; Philadelphia scored five of the last six goals.
