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 Stanwick Lacrosse Camp is run down in Maryland, and we were lucky enough to get photos from the camp from Craig Chase. The early premise of this post focuses on the traditional sticks on display at the camp, but it quickly degenerates into Scott Rodgers doing bicep curls with campers, ice bucket challenges, and other tomfoolery.
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.
Last weekend, the 2014 Shootout For Soldiers’ 24 hours of lacrosse game held in Baltimore, Maryland took place in order to raise money and awareness for various veteran help organizations.
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.
Craig Chase has been shooting D1 and MLL games for us, but back in 2007 he was shooting games and producing sweet, sweet photos! One of the events he shot in 2007 was the Crabfest Tournament, and Craig sent over some photos from the event, and they feature a number of guys who just graduated, or are still in college.
Craig Chase departed the confines of Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex after the Hounds got eliminated, and got right back to work. The level of play may not be NCAA D1 anymore, but the photos are still great!
Loyola was the heavy favorite heading in, but that mattered little as Albany started out hot, played composed lacrosse for 60 minutes, and got a superb effort from their defense and goalie, Blaze Riorden. The Danes beat the Hounds 13-6 on the road, and move on to the next round of the NCAA tourney, looking like the hottest team in the country.
The Loyola vs Johns Hopkins rivalry game can no longer be called the “Charles Street Massacre” by anyone in good conscience… it’s simply the “Battle of Charles Street” now, and this battle for Baltimore dominance is only getting better! We’ve got photos, GIFs, and video from this great college lacrosse rivalry game!
The Loyola Greyhounds are the outright 2014 Patriot League champions! First year members of the league, the Greyhounds wasted no time winning the conference tourney, moving them on to the NCAA Tournament for the 3rd time in 3 years.
Loyola entered the Patriot League this year, and in their first season of conference play, they finished with a perfect 8-0 regular season record. They now get a bye to the semifinals, which they will also get to host next weekend at the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.
It’s Loyola’s first year in the Patriot League, and they’ve already secured the #1 seed and right to host the semifinals and finals for the league this postseason. Their latest W came over first year program Boston University. The Hounds took a 15-6 win over the Terriers in front of their home crowd fans, as the game was played a the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.
Loyola travelled to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday, and the Hounds emerged with a hard tough 7-6 Patriot League win, but it took two overtime periods to decide the winner. Both keepers saw some serious heat, and we’re rewarding them in GIF format for their excellent efforts.
Loyola takes down Lafayette 21-4, the Hounds are undefeated in Patriot League play, Justin Ward had 8 points, Joe Fletcher scored his first career goal, and we got some great college lacrosse game photos from Craig Chase. Plus a Fletcher goal GIF!
