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 (154-for-253)

Gurenlian was inactive this week due to his participation on Team USA at the World Championships. Due to a statistical correction from Week 10, he moved into the top spot among MLL faceoff specialists.

2. Chris Eck — Boston Cannons (154-for-256)

Eck was inactive this week due to his participation on Team USA at the World Championships.

3. Anthony Kelly — Denver Outlaws (148-for-272)

Kelly excelled on Sunday against Chris Mattes of the Florida Launch, finishing 12-for-19 at the X. Kelly’s faceoff effectiveness continues to be directly correlated to the Outlaws’ team success: he has won 65% of the face offs taken in Denver victories, while winning just 45% of face offs in the team’s three losses. While New York’s Greg “Beast” Gurenlian is the current MLL faceoff leader, “A-Train” Kelly has led his Outlaws to the top of the league standings.

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