At the X presented by The Faceoff Academy


The race for top FOGO has gotten even closer, as the best of the best continue to show why they are the most respected faceoff specialists in the league. The battle at the X will become even more important as we get closer to season’s end, so check back each week to find out the best FOGOs in the league in “At the X, presented by the Faceoff Academy.”

1. Greg Gurenlian — New York Lizards (183-for-302)

The “Beast” dominated the X against Charlotte, winning 15-of-23 possessions. His strong performance has driven New York to the top of the league and his name to the top of the faceoff rankings. With Gurenlian now playing some of his best lacrosse, the Lizards are poised for a run to the Championship.

2. Chris Eck — Boston Cannons (168-for-287)

Eck did not dress in the Cannons 16-15 win over the Florida Launch. Boston’s Craig Bunker took all faceoffs in Eck’s place.

3. Bobby Dattilo — Ohio Machine (75-for-141)

Dattilo finished 8-for-17 at the X with six groundballs, splitting the faceoff duty with teammate Eric O’Brien. Dattilo also scored a goal for the second consecutive game, helping the Machine outlast the Rattlers, and giving Ohio control of their playoff fate.

Here are the complete rankings of the Top 10 players to take at least 30 faceoffs for their team this season.
