The North American Lacrosse League season hits its third week on Saturday, and already this season we have seen plenty of storylines. There is more to watch this week, so check out what to look for.
Vince Talbot in For Boston
Nick Schroeder is out for Boston this week and that means it will be Vince Talbot in net for the Rockhoppers. He lost to Kentucky last season and is getting his first start of the season. Earlier this season, Schroeder held Kentucky to nine goals. Can Talbot do the same?
Kentucky Wants Revenge
Kentucky has lost their last two contests to Boston and after a win last week are looking to get over .500. They have a tough road matchup in their first road game ever, but they are a team looking for revenge and that should motivate them.
Baltimore Plays First Home Game; Big Guns Back
Baltimore won a nice road game last weekend but now they go home to Du Burns Arena for the first time. They will have Shaun Nadelin and Dan Marhol back for action after missing last week. They face a Rhode Island team who lost in Kentucky. What kind of showing do the Bombers have?
Can Rhode Island Keep Up the Scoring?
Rhode Island scored 14 goals on Kentucky to everyone’s surprise. Can they put up the same offensive output against Baltimore? It will be tough facing such a stout defense and goaltending unit.
How Does Kentucky Handle the Boston Offense?
Kentucky struggled against Rhode Island, and Boston has a better offense. It has to be questioned how much they can handle against Boston on the road defensively without any adjustments.
