Chazz Woodson gets my first star. No matter what the score is, he will go to the net in style and at most times put the ball in the back of the net. Electrifying the fans in Ohio is something Chazz has no problem doing. He loves breaking his defenders ankles, then drawing that second defender behind the net and making the wrap around shot. His agility and quickness give him the upper hand against his defenders and make him nearly impossible to stop. His five goals and one assist prove that.
When your team needs a win your quarterback better be ready to come play, and that’s exactly what Ryan Boyle did. Not just by scoring goals, but by also assisting them. Ryan recorded eight points (2G, 6A) in the Cannons victory over first place Chesapeake. Desperate times doesn’t always call for desperate measures and Boyle proved that theory by taking control of the game and making smart decisions with the ball.
Rob Rotanz gets my Rookie Star. Rotanz had three goals for Rochester that were the daggers in the side of Ohio. He got the hot hand and the Machine defense couldn’t stop him. Once Rotanz gets going, it’s tough to stop a moving train. He worked very hard for those goals and definitely earned a spot on the star list.
It’s rare that I pick two people from the same game. I try to diversify my picks and choose a player from three different games and different teams. If you think that I missed anyone, let me hear your reasons.
