Through storms and a light delay the New York Lizards (6-4) were able to storm past the Florida Launch (4-6) in Major League Lacrosse action on July 3 at Shuart Stadium.
New York has been undefeated at home (winning five games) seems to have been able to find their stride, as well as offensive rhythm with everyone getting in on the attack, even ball distribution and overall pretty play.
Leading the way for the Lizards on the offensive side of the ball was Coca-Cola Player of the game Tommy Palasek who led all with five goals. Rob Pannell had a four goal and four assist performance, while JoJo Marasco and Matt Gibson both finished the game by finding the back of the cage three times. Michael Kimmel and Ned Crotty had two goals to round out the offense.
Meanwhile face-off specialist Greg ‘The Beast’ Gurenlian won 14 at the X tonight, while also recording 11 ground balls.
Next week, Major League Lacrosse will take a break for the FIL World Lacrosse Championships kicking off July 10 with Team USA taking on Team Canada. Returning after the break, you can catch the Lizards up in Boston as they play the Cannons on July 19 at 6:00 p.m. EST on ESPN3.com.
The Lizards will next be back on Long Island on July 27 as they take on the Chesapeake Bayhawks, at Stony Brook University with the face-off time for that scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
