BOSTON (June 6, 2018) – New York Lizards attackman Will Manny was named the Warrior Offensive Player of the Week for Week 7. Manny helped the Lizards to a 20-17 win over the Blaze on Saturday night in Atlanta.
Manny, 26, tallied a game-high eight points with five goals and three assists. He also picked up two groundballs and caused two turnovers. The Blaze trimmed New York’s lead to 19-17 with four minutes left in regulation, but Manny scored an insurance goal at 11:54 to secure the win. The eight points were his most in a single game as a member of the Lizards and his most since a 10-point performance with Boston on 5/14/16 against the Rattlers. It marked his third game this season with at least five points.
The Lizards acquired Manny from Boston at the trade deadline last season. He has 254 points and 162 goals in 71 career games since 2013 with the Cannons and Lizards.
