There were plenty of memorable performances in the 2013 MLL season. As the 2013 calendar year comes to a close, we decided to look back and count down the Top 13 performances of 2013. At #10:
Schwartzman saves 27
Date: 6/29 vs. Charlotte
Just look at the numbers: 27 saves, only 10 goals against. This game was in no way dominated by the Outlaws, but because of Schwartzman’s performance, it looked that way on the scoreboard. He shut out the Hounds in the pivotal second quarter when Denver outscored Charlotte 6-0. The Outlaws went on to win the game 17-11 in one of the best goaltender performances of the season.
The rest of 2013: Schwartzman went undefeated with the rest of the Outlaws, posting the first-ever 14-0 record as a goaltender in MLL history. His 9.67 goals against average is now a single-season record, as he’s the only goalie to post lower than 10 goals against per game. At the end of the season, he was named Warrior Goalie of the Year.
