Before the trade deadline at 4PM ET on Monday, Archers LC and Redwoods LC worked out a trade that sends Redwoods attackman Joey Sankey to Archers in exchange for faceoff man Jerry Ragoneese and a fourth-round pick in the 2020 PLL draft.
Sankey- who just came back this year after fighting through cancer and multiple knee injuries- has only appeared in two games thus far with Redwoods. In those two games he tallied three points (1G/2A) while also scooping up four ground balls.
Archers get another ball carrying and feeding attackman that can be dominate attacking from behind the cage at ‘x’, a place they haven’t had much production at all this season. In addition, Sakney will be reunited with his former college teammate Marcus Holman.
While he hasn’t seen any time yet, Ragoneese will add faceoff depth to Redwoods, especially with banged up Greg Gurenlian. Redwoods now have another very viable option that they can turn to for production.
