East beats West, MLL All-Star Game

Powell's a Pimp

The East dominated the West this past weekend at the MLL All-Star game in Boston... Your Eastern Conference All-Stars jumped to a 7-1 lead after the first quarter, and led 10-2 with under 10 minutes to play in the third. Of course, the West mounted a comeback... but who cares!

Here are your Skill Comp Winners:
Fastest Shot: Brian Langtry (WEST) – 104 miles per hour (last year, the winner was 6’4 Chris Fiore at 108 miles/hr... all of those guys shot over 100 mph. damn!)
Accuracy: Spencer Ford (WEST) – 46 points (u gotta hit corners to score... but u already knew all those guys could do that.)
Freestyle: Mikey Powell (EAST) – (the defending champ)

btw, the final for the game was 19-12 for the East. Boston Cannons midfielder Matt Poskay (4G, 1A) won MVP honors...

Mikey Powell - highlights
we weren’t too impressed with the free-style comp, minus powell, so we thought we’d include an additional clip of MP from his days back at Syracuse... we’ve seen this kid play live a few times and he’s always impressed. the guy’s unbelievable quick...
