Game Preview: Launch Face Atlanta Blaze in Home Finale


via Florida Launch press release


The Launch are looking for the season sweep of the Blaze in their last home game of the 2018 season! Game starts at 7PM at FAU Stadium.

The team still has to play one more game this week before Atlanta comes to town. The Launch traveled to Ohio to take on the Machine at Fortress Obetz for their second meeting this season. The game will be played Thursday night at 7PM and streamed for FREE on or on the LSN app.

The Launch and the Blaze have not seen each other since week one of the regular season, where the Launch overpowered the Blaze in a 13-10 win. Now in week 14 of the season, the Launch are ready to bring their A game again to extinguish their southern rivals for a second time at home. Key attackmen, Dylan Molloy, Kieran Mcardle and Ryan Drenner are on the hunt to get past Blaze goaltender Adam Ghitelman. Combined, the three players have scored over 100 points this season. Coach Mariano has been very impressed with Molloy’s performance this season, telling LSN this week, “He’s improved on a lot of the little things, cutting off ball, team vision… he’s an elite player in this league.” In goal, Austin Kaut is looking to break 200 saves in 2018, while Tucker Durkin, Team USA Gold medalist, looks to keep an eye out for the Blaze attackmen Kevin Rice, Matt Gibson and Tommy Palasek.

In honor of the last home game of the 2018 season the Launch are making it a night to remember for their dedicated fans.

Come out as the Launch will be giving away these items throughout the game!

  • Four Cascade R 2017 Launch helmets autographed by the players
