Austin Sol Announce Full 2017 Roster
February 6, 2017
Today the Austin Sol announced their official roster for the 2017 season. The list includes 33 players, 14 of which are newcomers to the team. Austin finished the 2016 regular season 7-7, failing to qualify for a playoff spot due to a tiebreaker with the Atlanta Hustle.
On offense, the team notably returns the unparalleled lefty handling lineup of Ryan Purcell, Jeff Loskorn, and Chase Cunningham. The trio combined for 150 assists during the 2016 season, helping lead the Sol offense to 25.5 goals per game, good for sixth in the league.
The top two defenders from last season—Michael Matthis and Lucky Mosola—are also back for the 2017 season. They paced an energetic-but-inexperienced group the held opponents to 20 goals or fewer in just two games in 2016.
Below is the entire player list. Bold indicates first year with team.
