Cannons in the NLL

March 7, 2011
Only four Cannons were in action in the NLL in the first full weekend of games after the All Star break. 

Greg Downing and Mitch Belisle suited up for the Boston Blazers on Sunday to take on the Buffalo Bandits. Downing had five loose balls while Belisle had two of his own and forced a turnover. Buffalo’s defense was able to hold the Blazers' potent offense throughout the first three quarters, giving up only four goals. A late Blazers rally was not enough as they fell 9-8 to the Bandits. The Blazers sit at 6-4 on the season, third in the east, and will head to Buffalo next weekend looking for revenge.

Paul Rabil was the only Cannon to get a win this weekend in the NLL. Rabil and his Washington Stealth teammates blew out the Edmonton Rush 18-10 on Saturday. Rabil had an impressive 15 loose balls and one assist in the game. Rabil now had 113 loose balls through 10 games, tied with Edmonton’s Brodie Merrill. The Stealth’s Lewis Ratcliff had four goals and five assists to lead all scorers. Washington is 5-5 and is third in the west. The Stealth will host Calgary next Sunday.

Ryan Boyle was in action for the Philadelphia Wings on both Friday and Saturday nights but his team could not find a winning formula. The Wings were in Toronto on Friday where they lost 15-10 to the Rock. Boyle had an assist and two loose balls in the contest. The Wings were back at home on Saturday to entertain the Calgary Roughnecks. Boyle had a strong game with three assists and three loose balls but the Wings fell 13-7. Philadelphia is 4-7 on the year and is off until March 26 when they will head to Rochester.
