Thul Wins Offensive Player of the WeekJuly 29, 2013 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Hamilton Nationals
Thul (pronounced THOOL) fueled the Hamilton Nationals to a 17-12 victory over Boston, earning the team a playoff position in this month's Championship Weekend, presented by Smartlink. The rookie out of West Point picked up Player of the Game accolades after a six-point, five goal performance. The lefty attackman is a strong catch-and-shoot player, firing in four of his goals off passes, including a highlight reel, airborne catch and behind-the-back finish.
"It was great. Everything was clicking," said Thul about his breakout night.
Thul is a strong and physical player, capable of muscling up his defender and firing in the two-pointer. In only four games this season he has 11 points, coming off nine goals, and two two-point goals. He was the Nationals' third-round selection (21st overall) in the 2013 Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft.
Thul and the Hamilton Nationals travel to Charlotte to play the Hounds on Saturday, August 3rd at 7:00 p.m. Check local listings and ESPN3.com for live coverage.
