Around The League

Lizards’ faceoff specialist Greg Gurenlian: No ‘FoGo,’ but always on the go, go(, 6/21/2013)

“Greg Gurenlian would love to forgo the FoGo label. Instead, the 29-year-old faceoff midfielder for the Lizards would rather be called a ‘FoSho.’ The term FoGo is short for "faceoff, get off." The acronym is reserved for lacrosse players who take faceoffs, then scurry off the field before reappearing in a game only after a team scores and a faceoff battle is again needed…” (read more)

Midseason Power Rankings(, 6/20/2013)

The Bayhawks (4-3) are in the second spot, overtaking the Nationals (5-2), who have cooled off with two straight losses. The Lizards have made their way into the top four after their win against Hamilton. The Cannons also move up — both teams leap-frogged the Charlotte Hounds — after winning the first game with new coach John Tucker…” (read more)

Walters Leads Nationals Back to Win Column(, 6/21/2013)

“Joe Walters had three goals and added three assists to help the Hamilton Nationals get back in the win column after back-to-back losses, 17-11 over Rochester. After a Kevin Leveille scored for Rochester to pull the score to 4-3 early in the second quarter, Hamilton scored seven of the next eight goals in the game, cruising to the win in a 'home' game in Boca Raton, Fla. Rochester outscored the Nationals 5-4 in a frantic fourth quarter, but it was too little, too late…” (read more)

The Charlotte Hounds outlast the Chesapeake Bayhawks in overtime(, 6/24/2013)

The Hounds (4-4) come away with a 2-1 record in their recent 3-game home stand, and now are in the driver’s seat for the 3rd playoff spot in the MLL. They won the game despite another brutal 2nd quarter in which the Bayhawks were able to outgun the Hounds by a score of 7-2 to take a 10-6 lead into halftime. From there, the Hounds slowly crept backand eventually were able to tie the game with 3:45 left in the game on a Peet Poillon goal that was ultimately reviewed and should find it’s way into multiple highlight reels for the midfielder. Like the Hounds last week, Chesapeake (4-4) has to feel like they let a winnable game slip away from them this week…” (read more)

Rookie Eric Law led his team in scoring, notching 5 to complete the team effort. The Ohio Machine earned their first win of the season last week against the Rochester Rattlers, getting some balanced scoring from the likes of Joe Cummings, Connor Martin, and Marcus Holman. In the first match of these teams this season, Denver took home the victory 13-8 on a sloppy game from both sides. The Outlaws have really found their rhythm offensively and have one of the most stout defenses, so I think we are all curious to see if Ohio can stay in this one!”  (read more)

The Denver Outlaws stay unbeaten with a runway win over the Ohio Machine(, 6/24/2013)

“Just a few minutes into the game, Denver already jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back. Chris Bocklet received Player of the Game honors with his 6 goal, 1 assist performance, but the entire Denver team looked to be clicking on both sides of the ball. Ohio had a few shining moments, but they were never able to penetrate Jesse Schwartzman’s stifling close defenders. Final score of this one was 19-5, but this one was over at the half. The Outlaws have now extended their franchise regular-season win streak to 14 games and have not lost a regular-season game since June 23, 2012. Denver’s 8-0 start to the season is the second best in Major League Lacrosse history and a win next Saturday versus Charlotte would tie the league record that was set by Baltimore in 2005…” (read more)
