Fans packed Selby Stadium in Delaware, Ohio Saturday night for the final home matchup between their Ohio Machine and the visiting Florida Launch. The ecstatic crowd knew exactly what was on the line; win and in to the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

14-10 read the scoreboard after the final whistle as Marcus Holman sent the ball up in to the dark Ohio skies, the Machine were victors and officially clinched the coveted playoff spot many have only been dreaming of.
Last night, the New York Lizards played host to the Florida Launch in a very patriotic pre-4th of July matchup. The soaking wet downpour made for the longest game of the 2014 season so far!
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!
Week six of Major League Lacrosse was filled with historic achievements and intriguing developments including the Denver Outlaws first loss in a long time!
Despite wet conditions the Florida Launch powered their way to an 11-8 victory over the Charlotte Hounds. The Launch seized their first win in the short history of the team and are now 1-1 on the season.
After watching night one of the MLL summer season, I couldn’t help but make some observations.
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.
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!
As we all know by now, Brodie Merrill was traded from the Florida Launch to the Boston Cannons. Brodie was called the long stick middie GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) by John Grant, Jr., and when you’re the best you’ve clearly logged some miles. How much does he have left in the tank?
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…
The floodgates have opened, the MLL offseason is in full swing, and the Florida Launch franchise is supplying some major fuel to the fire. You knew the Floridafication of the Launch was imminent, and now that we’re airborne, let’s review the moves that have been made, and why they were made.
Major League Lacrosse announced today that South Florida is officially getting an MLL team for 2014. The speculation surrounding this move existed before the 2012 all-star game was played in Boca Raton, but that event, along subsequent successful events, cemented the league’s move to the Sunshine State.
