One on One with Jeremy Boltus

Yesterday I spoke with Jeremy Boltus of the Charlotte Hounds. Here is what he had to say.

Lizards Win Streak Continues

After a shaky start to the start of the season, the Long Island Lizards have come back and won four games in a row. An early 13-11 loss to Chesapeake didn’t seem too bad. When they traveled to Denver and lost 19-11, that’s where the doubt came in. The Long Island offense scored 11 goals both games and the defense let up a combined 32 goals. Nothing seemed to be…
