National Lacrosse League Fan Poll: Goal of the Week

Another week gone, and another bundle of highlights to pick from for the best goal of the week. Rochester dominated both their games this weekend, and boy, did they make it look pretty, so pretty that half of the best goals this week were all scored by players in Knighthawk uniforms. Cory Vitarelli appears twice this week, getting really comfortable on the right side of the crease, popping home a desperation catch quick-stick, and a diving goal that he pulled back short side. To keep his teammate company, Stephen Keogh had a big weekend and also appears twice with two beauties this week. One, it appeared his drive to the net was cut short as he was covered before he could even get two hands on his stick. No matter though, an awkwardly elegant one handed goal helped Rochester stomp Philadelphia. Keogh’s other highlight marker came later in the same game. This time, Keogh cleanly swims over a stranded Ned Crotty for a beautiful goal.

Not to be outdone, Cody Jamieson showcased his entire skill set, using his speed and size to teleport around a pick, and his soft hands to slide the ball short side over the shoulder of Brandon Miller for the power play goal.

The Knighthawks weren’t the only ones scoring pretty goals, though. Colton Clark continues the trend of rookie players scoring incredible first goals in the NLL, with a behind the back laser. Mitch McMichael finished off a great passing play, set up by Athan Iannucci and Cliff Smith, with a good fake and a hard shot. Joey Cupido twisted his way inside and went vertical for a goal against the Stealth.

Curtis Dickson went parallel to the floor to fly through the crease to put Calgary on the board against Edmonton. And last but not least, Kevin Ross recorded a goal after a highlight reel passing play by Philadelphia, in a game against Rochester that didn’t see a lot of highlights for the Wings.

The best goals from this week are below. Pick your favourite in the poll.
