The Ryan Boyle countdown is on. The Attackman has a chance to break Casey Powell's MLL point record with a strong performance for Boston. On the other side, it's back to the future for Hamilton with Dave Huntley starting his first game as head coach. Here's how it should go down.
Boyle inched within two points of the record with two last weekend in his team's lost to New York. Powell's mark stands at 399 and if history is any indication, he should get it Saturday. When these two team's met last year at Harvard Stadium, Boyle had five points (three goals, two assists). Of course, he's going to need help from the rest of his team which was a problem last week. Outside of Boyle, Paul Rabil, Ari Sussman and Mike Stone, the rest of the team combined for four points. That's not going to cut it.
As for the Nats, they're starting fresh with Huntley…kind of. The head man spent two years with the squad from 2009 to 2010 and had success with the club. The team won the Steinfeld Cup in it's inaugural season in 2012. The team returns Brodie Merrill, the six-time defensive player of the year. His job…defend Paul Rabil. Good luck, Brodie!
Prediction: Boston 16-Hamilton10
Boston's not starting 0-2 and with so many pieces still playing in the MLL for Hamilton, I don't think they'll have enough for this one.
