Last night’s All-Star Game for Major League Lacrosse was a low scoring event, but nonetheless spectacular and memorable. 10,327 fans packed historic Harvard Stadium from far and wide to catch a glimpse of Team USA on their road to Denver. The game was a low scoring affair, but that was almost to be expected when playing international rules and when one team is seriously gearing up for the World Stage. The final score was 10-9 in favor of the USA, but the game didn’t appear to be going their way the entire tome.
Connor Wilson takes on Steve DeNapoli of the New York Lizards in the newest episode of Connor Versus. Can CW take down a pro lacrosse player 1 on 1?
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.
Through photos, video and interviews with Ohio Machine players, Brendan Geyer shares a first-hand look at what it’s like to experience an Ohio Machine game.
First things first: let’s talk about the All Star Game. Then we talk Week 7. In case you missed it a few days ago, the MLL announced their All-Star team, a covertly assembled squad selected to take on Team USA at Harvard Stadium on Thursday, June 26.
Kyle Harrison has always had a case of the shakes. From playing basketball in high school to lacrosse at Johns Hopkins, K18 struck fear in opponents with his shiftiness and ability to use both hands, if needed. Kyle is a righty, but you have to respect his left, as it is deadly, and when he combines this with a good burst of speed and hard shot, he can be un-guardable.
If Charlotte is going to keep their postseason window open, they just might have to end The Streak. It’s obviously a daunting task going against the Denver Outlaws, but the Hounds might just have what it takes!
Things are starting to shake out in Major League Lacrosse! It’s a week 5 recap from the one and only Chris Rosenthall. New York, Ohio, Denver, and Rochester all picked up big wins!
Miles Thompson made his Major League Lacrosse debut for the Rochester Rattlers this past weekend, and the 2014 Tewaaraton winner (along with his younger brother, Lyle) got going right away in MLL play, with a hockey assist on the first goal of his first game. The ball swung to Miles at X, he moved it along quickly, and one more pass later, the ball was in the net…
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.
Boston and New York both entered Friday night’s contest with 2-2 records, and this was the first NY – Boston game of the year. On paper, this game promised to be tight and competitive, and in reality, it proved to be just that. The Lizards pulled out a hard-fought 11-10 win at home to jump above .500, and the Cannons fell to 2-3.
Sean Christman takes a look at which senior college players that were undrafted in Major League Lacrosse have a shot at getting picked up this Summer by an MLL team. There are two D2 guys and one D3 guy on the list, and a bunch of D1 players who just finished their careers.
The Outlaws saw another challenger climb to the mountaintop, then promptly booted them down the slide like a department store Santa. The Hounds tried to beat the Cannons for the first time in their relatively short history, the Machine looked to do the same against the Lizards and both were denied. The more things change, the more they stay the same, right?
Ah, week four – the Mecca of MLL overreaction. We’re weeks away from actually sealing anyone’s fate, but (and I’m pretty sure I said the same thing last year) man oh man, 1-3 looks so much worse than 2-2, and this season, five teams find themselves teetering on that very precipice, staring into an abyss of no return. Okay, that may be a bit overdramatic, but this part can not be overstated: if you’re 1-2, right your ship ASAP, or you just might get left behind.
