The Cannons drop the first of four games against arch-rival Raleigh Flyers in the 2017 season by a final count of 25-18.
The overwhelming positive note from this game is that many weaknesses were exposed very early in the season. One of these weaknesses was handling the Raleigh zone. Coach Tuba now has solid game film to review in order to make the necessary adjustments. Additionally, the Cannons were able, or maybe forced to, spread the disc around a bit more than usual, resulting in very even stats across the board for the team.
Andrew McKelvey led the team in goals with 3 while Cole Sullivan registered a team high 4 assists; both of which are traditionally low numbers for the high octane Cannons offense.
Player of the Game and defensive cornerstone, Brad Seuntjens, registered 2 blocks, bringing his season total to 5. If Brad keeps this pace, he’ll be in the running for the AUDL Leader Board later in the season.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Langdon, despite a Week 2 Cannons bye, still leads the league in Goals and Plus/Minus with 12 and 20 respectively. Full game (and season) stats are available here: http://bit.ly/2owbpfc.
Despite a disappointing loss, the Cannons still managed to muster up some outstanding highlight plays, as usual, including a score as the buzzer sounded to end the game.
