BOSTON, Mass. – Major League Lacrosse, the premier professional lacrosse league, announced Thursday that goalkeeper Brian Dougherty of the defending MLL champion Philadelphia Barrage has been named as the 2007 Warrior Goalkeeper of the Year, according to Commissioner David Gross. The award was based on votes submitted by the general managers and head coaches of the ten MLL teams.

It is the third time in Dougherty's career that the former University of Maryland netminder has earned the award and the second straight year he has received the honor. He also received the award in 2003 when he was with the Long Island Lizards.

A two-time winner of the Goalkeeper of the Week award, Dougherty ranked second in the league in goals against average, allowing 11.79 goals per game. In addition, his .580 save percentage ranked second in the league behind Mickey Jarboe of the Los Angeles Riptide.

Dougherty made 20 or more saves three times during the regular season. On July 12, he posted a 20-save performance in a 12-7 victory against the New Jersey Pride. He also had 20 saves at Rochester on June 23 and a season-high 21 saves against Denver on July 21.

The 2007 NB ZIP MLL Championship Weekend will begin on Saturday, August 25 with a pair of semi-final games. The defending MLL champion Philadelphia Barrage will play against the Denver Outlaws while Rochester plays Los Angeles. The two semi-final winners will meet on Sunday, August 26 in the NB ZIP MLL Championship Game at 1:00 p.m. on ESPN2 HD.
