(Rochester, NY) Top MASL Goalkeeper joins the Lancers for the 2021 season. Matt Perrella brings multiple years experience to add to our depth of goalkeepers this season. Per league and team policies, no further terms of the agreement were disclosed.

“One of the most important positions in the indoor game is having a great GK whom is good with their feet.” said Head Coach, Doug Miller “The Lancers signing Matt Perrella gives exactly that and I am extremely excited to welcome Matt to the Lancers family.  I believe he will be a fan favorite who will excite everyone involved but most importantly make us more competitive.”
