Players to Watch
Peter Prial: The MLU’s number one goal scorer from 2013 led the team with four goals during D.C.’s Week 1 victory over the Philadelphia Spinners. Prial will have even more incentive to touch down with the disc in the end zone this week as he will be going head to head with his former squad, the Boston Whitecaps.
Alan Kolick: Kolick is one of the most gifted handlers in the entire MLU, but last week his layout D late in the contest secured the win for the Current. This week Kolick will look to be more productive with the disc in his hand so he won’t have to worry about saving the victory with a crazy D.
Eddie Peters: In his first ever professional game, Eddie Peters scored three goals and two assists. Late in the game, Peters quickly changed directions, reached across his body and laid out to reel in a deflected hammer from Prial for a score. Peters was rewarded for his outstanding effort on the grab with the Friction Gloves Catch of the Week.
