Matt Danowski Named the Offensive Player of the Week

Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, has announced its weekly award winners following this past weekend’s action. Warrior Promo player, Matt Danowski, was named the Offensive Player of the Week in the MLL.

Danowski was named the Offensive Player of the Week, after scoring 8 points on 3 goals and 5 assist during a 16-11 victory over the Toronto Nationals. The win clinch a spot for the Lizards at MLL Championship Weekend presented by Warrior, for the Lizards on Annapolis August 21st and 22nd in Annapolis, Maryland. Danowski’s points came at crucial moments of the game, as he helped the Lizards go on 12-2 run in route to the victory.

“I got a lot of points in transition,” says Danowski. “You don’t get 5 assists without guys finishing their passes. So we were shooting the ball well. The reason I get those points is because the people around me are playing really well. It was definitely a team effort.”

Danowski also helped his teammate Tim Goettelmann break Major league Lacrosse’s all-time goals scored record. He assisted Goettelmann on both the record tying and breaking goals late in the 4th quarter.

“He was really excited and all of the guys were pumped for him. I was going to get him that one inside no matter what,” says Danowski about the record breaking goal. “As soon as I got it, I was going to throw it to him. So Timmy did a nice little back door cut to catch and finish. I was really happy to see him get it in front of all of his family and friends from Long island.”
