Launch Make More Roster Moves For This Week

Written by Lee Roggenburg on . Posted in .
  The Launch are continuing their turnover of the roster to accommodate their transformative draft class. Last week it was Sergio Salcido, Nick Mariano, Alec Tullet, Dylan Molloy and Benny Pugh that would added, with all dressing except Molloy. This week the Launch have added 2nd round pick Tim Muller of the national champion Maryland Terrapins, 3rd rounder Jarrod Neumann of Big East runner up Providence and Final Four participant and 4th round pick Ryan Drenner of Towson to the 25-man roster. To make room the Launch have placed Marty Bowes on the IR list (injured during the NY win) and have released Matt Garziano and Jason Crane. The 19-man active list for the game will be finalized around noon tomorrow.   When you look at this current 25-man roster you might well see by the end of the year:   The 19-man dress team: Goalies:  Austin Kaut and Benny Pugh Faceoffs:  Will Gural and Chris Mattes (in all likelihood only one dresses each game) Attack:  Kieran Mcardle, Dylan Molloy, Ryan Drenner, Chazz Woodson, Steve Pontrello Midfield:  Connor Buczek, Sergio Salcido, Nick Mariano, Steven Brooks, Mike Unterstein, Mark McNeill Defense:  Tucker Durkin, Tim Muller, Jarrod Neumann, Liam Byrnes, PT Ricci, Alec Tullet, Sean Meagher That is 21, two of those aren’t dressing and Byrnes is still in NLL anyhow   That’s one heck of a team on paper. Lots of flexibility, and lots of variety in how the offense can scheme.  Three long poles that can play LSM. In reserve on the 25-man roster you are also likely seeing: The faceoff specialist who does not dress A third goalie in all probability? Or an extra long pole. Marty Bowes when healthy Tim Edwards has impressed Duncan Clancy Someone who I am forgetting about right now in all likelihood.   Just in case you are wondering . . . August 19th Frisco, Texas.     That’s where the MLL Finals are being held. If you caught the Notre Dame – Georgetown game this year it was played there. It’s looks awesome . . . and it is fully indoors! Southwest flies to Love Field in Dallas and there’s even a NON-STOP twice a day. Put it in the back of your mind.
