UAlbany Alum Queener Shines In Win At Major League Lacrosse Championship Game

Brett Queener with 2 beautiful rushes downfield collecting an assist. He added some very nice stops in goal as well. Rochester wins 16-6 and is the Major League Lacrosse Champion. More to come...

Player AND Hot Shot of the Day - Brett Queener, Rochester

You have to add it all together. It was his break dance to Rhianna during warmups. It was his full field clears, including a stylish juke move in the fourth quarter, capped off with a shrug of the shoulders. It was his sweet assist to teammate Jeff Zywicki with a minute and a half left in the third for the team’s 12 goal of the day.

Queener had spark. He had style. He did it all for Rochester in the second half, including locking down on defense with 10 saves. The older guys on defense fed off the effort, sparking the Rattlers to their second half dominance. On a veteran team, it was the rookie who helped them get over the hump.

“I just came out there and tried to get that first stop. I took my first run and actually got knocked on my butt. That kind of woke me up a bit. After that all facets of our team started clicking, I just had to make a couple saves and everything went from there,” Queener said post-game.
