Written by Lee Roggenburg on . Posted in .
via MLL press release   Warrior Offensive Player of the Week Dave Lawson tallied four points including the game winning overtime goal to lead his team to victory over the Cannons. This was the second consecutive time he scored the game winner which also earned him Coca-Cola Player of the Game.   Warrior Defensive Player of the Week Mike Manley had four groundballs for the Rattlers in the victory over the Outlaws.  He continues to show his defensive dominance across the field each week and will look to extend the Rochester winning streak into Week 10.   Cascade Rookie of the Week Brandon Mullins picked up two groundballs for the Cannons against the Lizards. He continues to make an impact on the field and his hustle on transition was rewarded with a crisp pass from Will Manny that led to his first professional goal!   Game Results   Atlanta Blaze 18 (OT) Ohio Machine 17 It’s not easy playing against the Machine at home but the Blaze brought the heat and gave Ohio their first home loss of the season. Matt Mackrides joined the team through a trade and made his presence known with the game winner. Coca-Cola Player of the Game: Mark Matthews   New York Lizards 13 (OT) Boston Cannons 12 These two haven’t met since the 2015 OT Semi-Final and it should be no surprise that they needed extra time again. Dave Lawson played with ice water in his veins as he tallied the tying goal to force overtime and then netted his second consecutive OT winning goal. Coca-Cola Player of the Game: Dave Lawson   Rochester Rattlers 19 Denver Outlaws 11 The Rattlers dominated every aspect of the game and handed the Outlaws their first loss at home behind a spectacular offensive performance from Wolf (6G, 4A). During halftime, the Outlaws retired the jersey of longtime goalie Jesse Schwartzman. Coca-Cola Player of the Game: Jordan Wolf   Charlotte Hounds vs. Florida Launch Due to severe weather surrounding the area Saturday night, the game between the Hounds and Launch was postponed.
