The European Lacrosse League holds its third tournament of the summer this weekend in Radotin, Czech Republic. The press ELL’s press release below gives a quick rundown of how all four teams in the league are faring so far and what’s up for the tournament this weekend. All games can be watched live. Game times listed are Central European Summer Time; subtract 6 hours for ET and 9 hour for PT. Results from the first two tournaments can be found here.
Pietro Filipi are the fourth after two tournaments. American goalie Ginny Capicchioni will help them in the goal. She has esperience from the NLL. Thanks to the draft after tournament 2 there two young talented attackmen will appear in the black jersey: Tomáš Procházka from Custodes and Petr Novák from Wolves. Full bench is expected and the team will show its strenght before play-offs.
Wolves played in their full strenght in the tournament 2 already and they will want to confirm their success. But it will be difficult for them. They will miss one of their key players Emil Moravec and mentioned Petr Novák.
The German team was missing a top class goalie in previous tournaments. Playing manager Jamie Plunkett invited young talented goalie Tomáš ?ekal from Jižní M?sto. Michal Rozkot from the same club will be second Adler’s aquisition. Adler will miss Jamie Plunket in the first game due to his penalty for a fight in the Tournament 2 game against Wolves.
Custodes stay beyond expectations so far and their game is not as good as we are used to. But there are three players who will certainly help to get the game to higher level. Patrick Crosby, member of the team USA in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship 2011 and #3 in the NALL draft, will appear in the goal. George Castle with experience from NLL Philadelphia Wings and John Hopkins will strenghten the offense. Finally Dominik Pešek returns from his stay in Canada where he played in Junior A for Victoria Shamrock and gained 59 points in his succesfull season.
