Press Release: Walters Named Warrior Offensive Player of the Week

Annapolis, MD –Veteran midfielder Joe Walters was named Warrior Offensive Player of the Week for Week 9 of the 2014 season after his stellar play against the Florida Launch. The winners are chosen every week by MLL Commissioner David Gross and are based on outstanding in-game achievements. After having missed the first few games of the year due to NLL commitments, Walters’ impact has been apparent throughout the team as they enter the last stretch of the season.

Walters, a seven-time MLL All-Star, led the Bayhawks to a crucial 18-11 victory over the Launch Saturday night, improving the teams' record to 3-6. Scoring on four of his five shots on goal, the midfielder registered a superb .80 shooting percentage while notching four assists.

Accumulating eight points, Walters scored all four of his goals in the first half, along with two assists delivered to midfielder Ben Hunt and attackman Ben Rubeor. He connected with attackmen Brandon Benn and Drew Westervelt in the third quarter to build on Chesapeake’s lead. The University of Maryland alum will look to continue his success as the Bayhawks travel to Ohio to face the Machine this Friday, July 4th, at 4:00 PM (ET). The game will be broadcast live on CBS Sports Network.

The Bayhawks return home on Thursday, July 17th, against the Rochester Rattlers at 7:00 PM at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
