[NLL MASH-UP] The Re-Nameing

Words by @BernasconiRich
It was an unusual weekend in NLL, as all four road teams came out with victories on Saturday night.  There have been only 5 other wins by the roadies all season long.  TORONTO was the lone home team to win this weekend. There was a lot of action going on at the same time, here are some observations from the weekend.

TOR def. ROC, 17 - 9
N.E def. ROC, 9 - 8
SASK def. COL, 17 - 12
GEO def. CAL, 15 - 12
VAN def. BUF, 11 - 10 OT

STEPHAN LEBLANC had his best game as a BLACKWOLF with 2g, 4a.  We’ve been saying all year if their left side can produce NEW ENGLAND will be a serious contender.

STONE COLD AARON BOLD was dialed in all night long with 48 saves.

CODY JAMIESON is looking like he will get stronger and sharper as the year goes on.  That would be the one silver lining for a rough 0-2 weekend for the KNIGHTHAWKS.  He finished the weekend with 4g, 8a.

Nice to see VANCOUVER show some personal and professional pride upsetting the BANDITS.  That is a terrible loss for BUFFALO.

As predicted, GEORGIA would be able to get on track shooting at the CALGARY goaltenders. They scored a season high 15 goals.

SHAYNE JACKSON may be the most underrated player in the league.   Had a solid night with 4g, 6a

LYLE THOMPSON was held to only 1 assist, shot 0/9, but came with 9 LBs.

TORONTO continues to stay on a roll as their offense continues to click since putting KIERAN MCARDLE and DAN CRAIG into the lineup. JONES 36 pts, SCHREIBER 31 pts & HELLYER 29 pts are #’s 1,2,3, in scoring.

THE ROCK also showed a devastating transition game this week.  CHALLEN ROGERS easily played his best game of the season with 1g, 4a.  DAMON EDWARDS, SHELDON BURNS, BRODIE MERRILL may give the ROCK the best transition game in the league.

SASK continues to dominate as they won comfortably in COLORADO.  Again, the only question for me at this point is, are they going to go undefeated?

JEREMY THOMPSON doesn’t show up in the stat sheet, but he continues to play really well on faceoffs and the transition game.  He has 2g, 3a with 33 LBs.  Also, has a plus 50% on faceoffs.
