NALL Power Rankings: Lots of Week Five Action

Three games of action this week in the North American Lacrosse League that saw wins from Boston, Baltimore and Kentucky. However, there is not much movement in the standings. Baltimore had taken over first place briefly on Friday night, but the next night Boston would win to reclaim a tie. Baltimore lost the next afternoon.

1. Boston Rockhoppers 4-1

Boston was impressive once again, putting up 20 more goals on the Rhode Island Kingfish. Once again they were led by Mike Stone and Andrew Kirkaldy, who continue their fantastic season. Also helping has been Vince Talbot who allowed just one goal in the entire first half. Boston has a well deserved week off before they face Baltimore for the third time.

2. Baltimore Bombers 3-2

Baltimore was impressive on Friday night with their 17-13 win without most of their offensive stars. Matt Hickman stepped it up with six goals and Andrew Wasik had three as he continues to lead the league in scoring. Ginny Capicchioni continues to have a great season in between the pipes and was vital once again this weekend. However, they fell on Sunday in an 11-10 overtime loss, scoring less than usual for them and playing at the pace Kentucky wanted.

3. Kentucky Stickhorses 2-3

Kentucky managed to remain tied in tiebreakers with Baltimore while sitting just one game behind them still. They lost on Friday but rebounded nicely on Sunday with a strong game from Spencer Lyons in net while Dewey Porter has emerged as a prime scoring option. Jesse Guerin also changed the dynamic of an offense that will get Mike McClellan back in two weeks when Kentucky is back in action.

4. Rhode Island Kingfish 0-3

Rhode Island continued their dismal season with a 20-7 loss at the hands of the Rockhoppers. Joe Evans struggled for the first time this season, having to be pulled before the fourth quarter. Mike Maggio remained a bright spot for them with three goals.
