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 #9:
Rabil’s back-to-back seven point games
Dates: 5/18 vs. Chesapeake and 5/31 vs. Denver
After losing their first three games of the season, the Cannons needed a strong performance Week 4 against Chesapeake. That’s exactly what Paul Rabil gave them, scoring four goals, a two-pointer and adding two assists for a seven-point game in a 14-13 overtime victory. Next week against Denver, Rabil scored twice but dished out five assists, giving him 14 points in a two-game span.
The rest of 2013: Rabil actually had an eight-point game against Charlotte later in the season, but we thought back-to-back seven point games were more impressive. Rabil finished with 54 points on the year, one back of scoring leaders Chris Bocklet and Kevin Crowley. It was Rabil’s fifth straight season where he finished top-5 in scoring.
