Cannons in the NLL


Kevin Buchanan scored a hat trick on three heavy shots as the Blazers took on the Toronto Rock Saturday night at home.  Buchanan, who is having a strong season for the Blazers, scored the game winning goal at the end of the third period and picked up three loose balls on the night. Greg Downing had an impressive game, scooping up 11 loose balls and forced two turnovers as the Blazers went on to defeat the first place Rock by a final score of 9-7. Mitch Belisle collected six loose balls and forced a turnover in defense while Jack Reid forced a turnover as well and won one of the two face-offs he took on the night.  Buchanan currently sits second on the team and 11thin the NLL in goals scored. The Blazers have won two straight games and sit at 4-3, fourth in the East.

Paul Rabil picked up an assist on Saturday night in Colorado as the Washington Stealth defeated the Mammoth 10-8. Rabil’s scoring numbers haven’t been as high as they typically are when he suits up for the Cannons, but his play in other aspects of the game have been impressive. He scooped up four loose balls and forced a turnover during the game. Rabil’s 63 loose balls so far this year are good for second in the NLL. Washington currently sits at 3-3 in the NLL’s West Division.
