Rattlers add Matthews

In a last minute trade on Friday, the Rattlers acquired Mark Matthews from the New York Lizards in exchange for Steve DeNapoli and a 4th round pick in the 2014 Supplemental Draft.

This will be the third team for Matthews in as many years, as he previously played for Denver in 2012 and the Lizards in 2013. Matthews has scored 30 goals and registered 45 points in 17 career games in the league. The attackman found the score sheet in all but one game this year, but failed to play a game after July 4.

DeNapoli just finished his third year in the league and second with the Rattlers in 2013. The midfielder had 4 goals in 14 games this past season, while scooping up 29 ground balls. DeNapoli is the third former Rattlers player to be traded to New York this month, joining Ned Crotty and Matt Striebel.
