Cannons in the NALL
This past weekend was the inaugural NALL championship game as the Boston Rockhoppers faced the Kentucky Stickhorses. Kentucky scored first, but it was all Rockhoppers as Mike Stone quickly answered for Boston and after that, the Rockhoppers would not relinquish the lead again. Stone would score twice more in the first quarter and Jon Hayes would add two goals of his own. Marty Bowes added a goal himself in the second quarter and scored again later in the second half. The Boston Rockhoppers dominated until the end, winning by a score of 25-13 over Kentucky and being named the first NALL Champions. Mike Stone was named the championship MVP.
