NLL Three Stars Week 8

Week 8 is now in the books and once again we had a lot of high flying action. The premier players of the league stood out for their teams as usual, but there was also goaltending this weekend that played a big part in games this past weekend.

1. Curtis Dickson (Cal) —  The player they call “Superman” was just that.  Dickson registered 7 G (4 PPG), 2 A in leading his team to their first win of the season.  Dickson’s goal outburst moved him into a tie for second in the league overall with 22 goals scored.  Also, Dickson with his 4 PPG Saturday night is now the leader with 8 PPG on the year.

2. Adam Jones (Col) — Jones registered 4 G/3 A helping the Mammoth to a much needed victory over the Black Wolves to end their three game losing streak.  Jones also picked up six loose balls and had a power play goal. Jones is on pace to set career highs in goals (39-2014) and points (76-2012).

3. Cody Jamieson (Roc) — Jamieson registered 4 G/1 A to help lead his team to a season sweep over the Bandits. Jamieson factored into five of the team’s final  seven goals. With his team down 12-10 Jamieson scored twice in a 1:15, then fired the overtime winner past Anthony Cosmo.
