Both the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Charlotte Hounds experienced first to worst seasons this Summer in Major League Lacrosse. Did everyone else in the league just get that much better? Did Chesapeake and Charlotte get that much worse? Or is something else going on? Is it possible that the gap in parity was so slim this year that a seemingly wacky season was actually the norm?

The lax world is talking about a new John Grant Jr MLL Record, and it has to do with him passing Kevin Leveille as the all-time leading goal scorer in Major League Lacrosse. Junior entered the game with 276 goals, and needed just one to tie Leveille at 277. Instead, John Grant Jr dropped four goals (and four assists!) to move to 280 total goals, and set a new MLL record.
Sunday’s home game for the New York Lizards was definitely an interesting one. Watching the game you must have noticed Chesapeake’s goalie Tyler Fiorito absolutely standing on his head with a career high 15 saves which earned him the game’s MVP honor.
Although you’ve probably shifted into more of an international lacrosse mindset for the time being, let’s take a quick look at everything that just went down in Major League Lacrosse.
The Ohio Machine have now matched this season’s win total with the franchise’s combined wins in the first two seasons. When the Machine #OilUp against the Bayhawks, big things happen. Chesapeake is the first, and only, team to be swept by the Machine this season.
At this point last season, the Denver Outlaws had officially clinched a trip to Championship Weekend, leaving the remaining seven (well, six, to be honest – sorry Ohio) teams to duke it out for the remaining three spots. This year’s a bit different: not only are all playoff spots still available, but everyone still has a shot at the postseason.
Week seven of Major League Lacrosse was packed to the gills with underdog wins, highlight goals, 5 minute misconducts and more!
The Chesapeake Bayhawks got back on the winning track with a big 16-15 win over the visiting Boston Cannons this past weekend, and Craig Chase was there snapping superb photos for our viewing pleasure. Not a bad deal! This is Boston’s 4th loss of the season (they now sit at 3-4), and each of these losses has come by single goal.
The Ohio Machine took on the Chesapeake Bayhawks, and earned a 15-11 win from the defending champs on the road in front of lively crowd on Saturday night. Chesapeake is now 1-4 on the year, and needs to find a way to get back to their winning ways. Ohio entered the game at 1-3 (like the Bayhawks) but moved to 2-3 with the big road W.
Ladies and gentlemen, once again, it’s on. It’s time for the 2014 Major League Lacrosse season to begin. Which team will end up in Atlanta four months from now, hoisting the Steinfeld Cup and doing the Nae Nae or whatever it is they’re doing in Atlanta four months from now? No idea whatsoever, but it’s time to find out, so let’s start things off with a team-by-team season preview.
The MLL announced today that every year, the league will be selecting two teams to help “makeover” for the upcoming season. Here in 2014, they’re starting with the newcomer Florida Launch and the 2013 Champions, the Chesapeake Bayhawks.
Welcome to Throwback Thursday! The year is 2001, and Major League Lacrosse has just completed their first season of real play. Long Island took down Rochester in the first semifinal, and now the Boston Cannons are taking on the Baltimore (now Chesapeake) Bayhawks!
Below you can find each Major League Lacrosse franchise’s supplemental draft picks for 2013. The biggest names in the game might not be involved in this draft, but this is where teams fill holes and build strong foundations. So pay attention… it’s important!
The biggest news out of Florida so far has been the Casey Powell – Joe Walters swap that went down yesterday. Powell was a leader for the Bayhawks last year, and helped them win their second straight title. It’s a little surprising to see Powell leave such a monster team, but when you consider all the promotion work he did for the last MLL All-Star game (held in Florida), it starts to make a lot of sense…
Major League Lacrosse has announced that every team in the league has submitted its 23-Man Protected Roster for 2014. The MLL also sent out the rosters for the 8 teams. Teams are granted a 40-man roster leading into the season, and they can fill those remaining 17 spots with supplemental draft picks, college draft picks, and trades, before the start of the 2014 campaign.
