Players to Watch
Jibran Mieser – Emerging superstar Jibran Mieser had another big game last week against D.C., compiling three goals and two blocks. Mieser is currently tied for the MLU lead in blocks with eight after only playing two games. Look for Mieser to play the key defensive match ups once again this week.
Josue Alorro – Alorro stepped up last week vs. D.C. to add four assists. While the Rumble defense had some trouble converting after generating blocks, Alorro brought a calming presence behind the disc.
Chris Kocher – Kocher continues to have an impressive rookie season, adding three assists, two goals and one block last week vs. D.C. If the Rumble are going to make it two in a row, they will need Kocher to continue his strong play.
