10 Man Ride: Week 8 San Jose

1. Jake Froccaro to Myles Jones Every team in PLL seems to be moving towards initiating from the wings – especially with pairs. The Chaos’ wrinkle: Keeping a stretch shooter near the top of the arc.

Whipsnakes LC vs. Chaos LC Week 7 Denver Recap

Dick’s Sporting Goods Park sits at 5,200 feet above sea level in Commerce City, Colorado, on aptly named 6000 Victory Way. Chaos didn’t seem to mind the altitude and avenged their Week 1 overtime loss to the Whipsnakes. In a rematch of the two top clubs, Chaos pulled out the 13-12 victory.

10 Man Ride: Week 7 Denver

1. Connor Fields vs. Tim Muller, Round 2 In their Week 1 matchup, the Whips trusted Tim Muller on an island against Connor Fields. They didn’t slide. If Fields beat Muller by himself, then he earned the goal. The Whips would live with that. Sliding to Fields (2G, 1A) leads to much scarier stepdown looks for Deemer Class (3G) and company.

10 Man Ride: All-Star Edition

1. Paul Rabil’s around the world dime I heard this pass was No. 2 on SportsCenter Top 10. I’m not sure what the No. 1 play was, but I’m assuming that Andrew Benintendi must have leapt 37 feet high to rob a home run in front of the Green Monster. Anything less than that is certainly not greater than this.

10 Man Ride: Week 6

1. Whipsnakes rollbacks The Whipsnakes are loaded with two-handed midfielders who can get physical and roll to re-roll until they find their shot. Eventually, they will find their shot. It’s inevitable. Those unassisted shots down the alley or across the two-point arc are some of the least efficient on the field, though. The Atlas’ gambled on the Whipsnakes, well, whipping those shots wide.

10 Man Ride: Week 5

1. John Crawley inverting at X Heading into their Friday night matchup with the Archers, the Atlas’ ball movement had been nonexistent. Their offense was settling for the first shot too often. Part of that is a byproduct of dodging from the midfield too much.

10 Man Ride: Week 4

1. Blaze Riorden sparking transition with clean saves Chaos LC goalie Blaze Riorden made a ridiculous 21 saves against the Archers LC. Several of those saves were made cleanly, which is the worst possible outcome for a shooter.

10 Man Ride: Week 3

Welcome to the 10 Man Ride – a weekly Monday recap hitting on the 10 best stats, plays and moments of the PLL weekend. 1. Charlie Cipriano’s relief effort Redwoods LC attackman Clarke Petterson embarrasses goalies. All of them. From Cornell to the PLL, Petterson has been lights out as an inside finisher. The dude buried 44 goals on 52 shots on goal as a senior; goalies only stopped 15.4% of the shots that Petterson put on cage! Through three games, pro goalies haven’t been any better. Petterson has five goals; goalies have made two saves on him. One of those saves: This third quarter denial by Chaos LC goalie Charlie Cipriano.
