Annapolis, MD – Goalie Tyler Fiorito has been named Warrior Defensive Player of the Week for Week 12 of the 2014 season after his superb play against the New York Lizards yesterday. The winners are chosen every week by MLL Commissioner David Gross and are based on outstanding in-game achievements.
Fiorito led Chesapeake to a 12-11 win over the Lizards Sunday afternoon, improving the teams' record to 4-8. The Princeton All-American had a career-high 15 saves on 26 shots faced, registering a .577 save percentage. His stellar performance combined with the effort put forth by the Bayhawks defense resulted in New York being shut out the entire fourth quarter.
In his third year with the Bayhawks, Fiorito has stepped up in a big way, filling in for starting goalie Kip Turner, who sustained a broken thumb midway through the season. Fiorito has made the most of the opportunity, recording 68 saves and a .527 save percentage in six games played this year.
This marks the third time this season a Bayhawks player has been awarded a Player of the Week honor. Earlier this season, both Ben Hunt (Week 7) and Joe Walters (Week 9) were named Warrior Offensive Player of the Week.
Chesapeake returns home on Thursday, July 31st, against the Denver Outlaws at 7:30 PM at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
