Lancers Set for Key Road Trip to Midwest
(Rochester, NY)... The Rochester Lancers will hit the road this weekend for a pair of Midwest tilts beginning on Friday night at Missouri (9-10) against the Comets and then again in Wichita (6-12) Saturday night against the Wings. Both matches are scheduled to kickoff at 8:35 PM.
Rochester enters the match in fifth place in the MISL standings at 7-12 and just a half game out of a playoff spot. Rochester owns the season series against both Missouri and Wichita this season. Against the Comets, Rochester has earned two wins at home while falling in their only matchup on the road earlier this month. Meanwhile the Lancers have taken on Wichita twice this season, winning both matches, including 19-10 win on the road.
Missouri boasts one of the league's top offensive weapons in Byron Alvarez who has tallied 60 points this season, good for third in the MISL. However, Alvarez has not played in the last three games for Missouri and in his absence Leo Gibson was moved into the attack and has made the most of it, scoring 30 points in his last four matches including a record setting 16 point night against Rochester two weeks ago.
The Wings are led offensively by Frederico Moojen (49 pts) and Geison (39 points). Former Lancer Andrew Hoxie has had a strong season thus far tallying 36 points in 18 games.
MILLER NAMED TO TEAM OF THE WEEKRochester's Doug Miller was named this week to the MISL's Team of the Week. The veteran forward tallied four goals and eleven points in the Lancers 17-8 win over Missouri last weekend. Miller continues to lead the MISL in scoring with 83 points. He has a 16 point lead over the league's number two scorer and Lancer teammate Mauricio Salles.
