Hounds and Machine Unit by Unit

Battle of the new franchises is upon us, again. This time though, there are new factors at play. Teams have altered their rosters and get to try different game plans. Charlotte, standing at 1-6, has the edge with an early season 18-15 win over Ohio. The Machine’s record is at 1-5, with their only win coming over Rochester. The Hounds have come close to a couple wins, losing by one…

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…

Martin Cahill Sent to Cannons for Brad Ross

Last night the Boston Cannons acquired midfielder Martin Cahill from the Rochester Rattlers for midfielder Brad Ross, I confirmed with a Cannons source earlier this morning. Cahill is a Boston native, but does not have any points this season. He had a career high eighteen points last season.

Nationals Win Second Straight Match

Hamilton shows everyone they are for real by dominating Rochester in every way. The game started off close and had the makings of a classic back and forth battle. That all changed early in the 2nd quarter as Rochester was unable to stop Hamilton’s shooters from treating John Galloway like a star at a carnival shooting gallery. The Nationals took a 3-3 tie and blew the doors off it with…

They deserve to be atop the rankings. 2. Long Island Lizards- I’m a Lizards believer….

The Bayhawks cruised to a 15-7 win behind a big first quarter that saw them open up a 7-1 lead, behind a Drew Westervelt hat trick. For the first 5 minutes of the second it looked as if Charlotte was going to make another dramatic comeback as they did the week before against Hamilton but it wasn’t…
