The Premier Lacrosse League has announced that Chrome LC goalie Brett Queener has been suspended and fined by the league following the hit that he laid on Redwoods LC attackman Jules Heningburg during Saturday’s game.
The league put out the following statement via Twitter, “The PLL has determined that the the incident involving Chrome LC goalie Brett Queener which occurred during Sunday’s game against Redwoods LC amounted to dangerous, unsportsmanlike behavior. Queener has been suspended for one game and issued a fine by the League.”
In Saturday’s game, Brett Queener came out of the crease and delivered an egregious hit on Heningburg as he drove from behind the cage. The hit was extremely high, left Queener’s stick broken in half, and knocked Heningburg out of the game with a concussion.
A brawl between the two clubs followed the hit, and saw Queener shove and tackle multiple Redwoods players. Penalties were handed out on both sides, including eight minutes of penalties against Queener.
Redwoods went on to blowout Chrome 18-7, securing a spot in the playoffs. Chrome finished the regular season last in the standings and will be playing for the first overall draft pick in 2020 along with Atlas LC.
