Snider brother may face off Sunday

When Washington Stealth transition player Bob Snider goes to the center circle for the first faceoff tonight against the Calgary Roughnecks, he will most likely be going up against a familiar face.
That would be a former teammate in Philadelphia, who also just happens to be his brother Geoff.
Calgary's Geoff Snider, 29, has been one of the NLL's most successful faceoff men for years and his brother Bob, 25, has established himself this season as an up and comer with the same skill. Last season, playing for the Philadelphia Wings, Bob got his share of playing time, but it was Geoff who took the majority of the faceoffs.
A year later the Snider brothers have new teams and Bob has moved into the role of faceoff specialist with the defending NLL champion Stealth.
Calgary coach Dave Pym said in a Wednesday conference call that Geoff is day-to-day after suffering a head injury last week, but when asked about the game on Thursday, Geoff said, "right now I'm playing."
