NALL Power Rankings: Kentucky Falls

March 6, 2013

This week we have some movement and it might be a bit surprising. How could a winless team rank higher than a team with two wins? Easy. The winless team has lost three and the two win team has lost four, and will be in the playoffs. 1. Boston Rockhoppers 6-1 Alright, this won’t be changing anytime soon. Boston is destroying teams in this league because their transition can’t be…


Rockhoppers Get Sixth Win As They Topple Stickhorses

March 3, 2013

This game was a tale of two teams going in different directions on the floor as the Boston Rockhoppers moved to 6-1 on the season while Kentucky fell to a 2-5 record. Boston picked up a 16-13 victory where they just played their game as they have all season, and that’s a game of smart shots, and not many penalties. Boston was led by Vince Talbot in net yet again…


NALL: Stickhorses Battle With Rockhoppers

March 2, 2013

The Kentucky Stickhorses face their rival Boston Rockhoppers for the third and final time this season. Boston has defeated Kentucky in both of their matchups this season. This is Boston’s second trip to Louisville. Kentucky suffered a two goal loss to the Baltimore Bombers last week where they struggled to score and stay out of the box. Meanwhile, Boston’s last game was also in Baltimore in a blowout victory over…

NALL Power Rankings: Falling Into Routine

February 27, 2013

It’s getting to be the same old same old in the NALL Power Rankings as we are beginning to expect more of the same from some of these teams. Boston continues to dominate in the weekly rankings. 1. Boston Rockhoppers 5-1 Boston had this week off after their contest against Rhode Island was postponed, but they remain at the top with the best record in the league. They go to…


Bombers Win Vital Matchup With Kentucky 12-10

February 25, 2013

The Kentucky Stickhorses need to win their next two games and hope Baltimore falls to Boston in a few weeks. That’s the only way they can make the playoffs now as they suffered a potentially backbreaking loss at the hands of the Bombers. Kentucky and Baltimore were tied after one and Spencer Lyons played pretty well in net, however he allowed a run late by Baltimore that eventually was the…


NALL: Bombers Face Stickhorses for Playoff Implications

February 23, 2013

The NALL is a little bit different than it was early this week. Now each team has nine games instead of ten and the playoff picture is different. Boston is in, leaving one spot left, which will be Kentucky or Baltimore. Kentucky will not be traveling to Boston again this season. They host Boston next week, but it’s the games against Baltimore that are vital. If they win tomorrow then…


NALL Power Rankings: The Boston Show

February 21, 2013

The Boston Rockhoppers are dominating the NALL as they have clinched a playoff spot, but now they are out of action this week along with Rhode Island. However, after their win last week Boston remains at the top. 1. Boston Rockhoppers 5-1 Hard not to have a 5-1 team at the top, especially after they destroyed Baltimore on the road twice now. The Rockhopers have a perfect offense that doesn’t…


NALL Three Stars: Boston All Three

February 20, 2013

It’s tough to rank three players when there is one game all week and that game is dominated by just one team. Therefore, every star this week is on Boston. Sorry, Baltimore. Mike Stone, Boston Rockhoppers Mike Stone had seven goals. Seven goals. That is the best single game performance in the history of the NALL, one goal better than Matt Hickman’s six goals two weeks ago for Baltimore. To…


Talbot Blog: Rockhoppers Keep Rolling

February 19, 2013

I like playing at the Du Burns arena in Baltimore. Even though it has a lot of weird little annoying things like the blinding windows and the awful locker room layout, it also has a lot going for it. The turf is one of the best in the league, the fans show up to games and seem to know about lacrosse and, most importantly, we are 2-0 in the building…
