It didn’t take long for Cannons rookie attackman Asher Nolting to make an impact on the professional level. Only 38 seconds into his debut during Week 1 of the Premier Lacrosse League season, Nolting received a pass from star teammate Lyle Thompson just inside the two-point arc. He darted left, then cut back toward the goal, and fired a shot past Waterdogs netminder Matt DeLuca for his team’s first point of the year, and the first goal of his career.
“A really good thing happened really quickly,” Cannons coach Sean Quirk says. “These [two] guys connected.”
It was the first in a pair of goals Nolting scored during his team’s opening-weekend win.
