After just a hand full of games into the National Lacrosse League’s 2019 season and far too early to draw any kind of fix on who will be the “haves” and “have-nots” around the league. But enough time to see what kind of impact Six Nations players are already making around the league.
Following weekend games, in the East, the Georgia Swarm is off to a great start, winning all three games so far this season with a roster that boasts six, Six Nations players, including: Brendan Bomberry (3G,1A), Randy Staats (3G,11A), Syl Thompson (8G,8A), Jerome Thompson, Miles Thompson (5G,3A), and Zed Williams (1G,4A).
Buffalo is in second spot in the east without a Six Nations player in the roster this year, and the Toronto is in third spot with Johnny Powless (3G,3A), representing Six Nations.
Out west, Calgary leads the division with three wins and one loss, the Saskatchewan Rush are in second with Jereme Thompson in the lineup. The new San Diego Seals with Austin Staats (9G,8A) is in third.
Around the rest of the league, Adam Bomberry has a goal and an assist for the New England BlackWolves after two games, Vaughn Harris has scored three and assisted on two for the Philadelphia Wings. Brayden Hill did not score,
The Rochester Knighthawks have a one-two punch in goal with the tandem of Angus Goodleaf and Warren Hill and Cody Jamieson has four goals and four assists for eight points in two games played. Quinn Powless has a goal and two assists for the Knighthawks so far as well.
This coming weekend, Jan. 12th, the Philly Wings host the Georgia Swarm at the Wells Fargo Centre, Toronto is in Colorado, New England is in Calgary, Saskatchewan is in Vancouver and San Diego welcomes the Rochester Knighthawks.
