Top 13 Performances of 2013: #2 Turner

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 #2:

Impenetrable Kip

Date: 5/4 vs. New York

Last week, we showed you how Ben Rubeor (No. 3) dominated this game offensively. On the back end, Kip Turner showed MLL fans why he’s one of the most dominant goalies in MLL history with his unbelievable performance. Turner held the Lizards to just three goals on the 20 shots he faced, posting an unprecedented 85% save percentage in the game. The three goals allowed is the lowest ever in an MLL game.

The rest of 2013: If not for Jesse Schwartzman and the undefeated Outlaws, Turner would have been the easy pick for Goalie of the Year. His 10.35 goals against average ranks third all-time (only behind Schwartzman) while his .571 save percentage was third best in the league. However, he showed his true form in the playoffs, posting a .583 save percentage and a 10.00 goals against average for his third straight MLL title.
