MLL UPDATE – WEEK EIGHT
A pair of #ProBucks on the defensive end of the field – Ben Randall and Matt Borges – played key roles in helping the New York Lizards earn a 14-10 win over the Chesapeake Bayhawks on Saturday evening. Randall in particular was a key contributor at both ends of the field, picking up two ground balls and causing one turnover while also scoring a goal – his first since high school.
