Pioneers outlast Outlaws in Denver

This past weekend the Denver University Pioneers’ men’s lacrosse team faced off against the Denver Outlaws in a fall exhibition know as the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase. The current NCAA D1 powerhouse of the west squared off against their more experienced city mates from the MLL and came out on top 10-5.

Of course the Outlaws were missing a few key all-stars and the Pioneers were at nearly full strength and coming off a scrimmage against Team Canada.  The game was a bit of a “homecoming” for quite a few of the Outlaws. At least 8 of the Outlaws playing in the game are former Pioneers, making the battle in the “Mile High” seem a bit more like a high caliber alumni game.

Things are looking good for the 2014 Pioneers.
