It was a weekend filled with epic comebacks – were they enough to win, or did the teams fall short? Denver, Hamilton, Chesapeake, and Boston seemed like Major League Lacrosse favorites. Are they still?

The last time the Chesapeake Bayhawks faced off against the Boston Cannons, the Cannons were 0-3, with the worst season start in franchise history. That game ended in with an overtime victory for the Cannons at Harvard stadium, and would lead to a monumental turn around seeing Boston winning 4 of the next 6 games, putting them back in playoff contention.
Three games on Saturday in Major League Lacrosse, and all come with big implications for the playoff picture. Can Charlotte, Rochester, or New York make a move? Will Denver keep winning? Can Ohio double their win total for the year?
Much ado was made by many in the lacrosse world concerning the return of Casey Powell to Major League Lacrosse last night, and for good reason. The 37 year old superstar has been a force in pro lacrosse (both indoor and outdoor) for years, and Casey showed no signs of slowing down in his 2013 MLL debut, and return to the league, after a brief retirement.
The MLL returns to regular season action tonight with a high-stakes matchup between the 2011 and 2012 champs, the Boston Cannons and the Chesapeake Bayhawks. It will air live on CBS Sports Network.
What new skills competitions would you want to see?
In today’s MLL, the culture of consistency has become more vital to an organization’s success than ever before. It’s no longer about assembling the best group of all-star caliber players and throwing them out on the field, it’s about finding personnel that fit a system and are both willing, and able, to stay local, and together, as much as possible.
Joe Walters scored a behind the back goal off a behind the back feed from Jordan MacIntosh. It’s an All-Star highlight, and exactly what one would expect from some of the world’s best.
When All-Star weekend came to the Queen City, we had to see it for ourselves. Chris Rosenthall takes in the All Star Game, tailgating, and some tasty BBQ in North Carolina!
Prior to Major League Lacrosse’s All Star Game in Charlotte, a bunch of MLL players went to a local Moe’s Southwest Grill, the title sponsor for the event, to mingle with fans, and try their luck at making, and rolling up, burritos.
This year’s MLL All Star Game consisted of two teams: Team Supernova and Team Eclipse. Team Supernova won with a score of 24 to Eclipse’s 15. It was lopsided in the first two quarters with not much more than a glimmer of hope in sight for Eclipse.
To pick, or not to pick – that is the question.
We love it when a goalie takes the rock down field and scores. We love it even more when it happens in the MLL. When it happens in the MLL and it’s not Brett Queener? SHOCK AND AWE!
The Outlaws make history, the Bayhawks barely escape an upset, and Tucker Durkin takes out two Rattlers
Only a few weeks back, the Boston Cannons were seemingly in free fall, sitting in seventh place with a 1-5 record. Since that time, they have changed their head coach, added in a couple of new faces, and rattled off four straight wins. Currently, they are in fourth place, and they looking solid as the playoff race heats up.
Saturday night’s game between Boston and Charlotte was a heart breaker for underdogs everywhere. Before the game the ESPN announcers put it best “the winner of this game in a playoff contender, the loser is a pretender”. I hate to agree with that, but sadly for Hounds fans, that’s the way it looks for the Hounds right now.
Brian Karalunas proves you don’t have to be 6’4″ and 220 pounds to play D in the MLL, and now he’s sharing some of his secrets with you!
Denver’s streak continues as they look to set a couple of records, Hamilton’s win streak comes to an end, and another rookie Rattler leads the way. Who’s going to the Play Offs THIS week?
Last Saturday, the Hounds traveled to Denver to play the undefeated Outlaws. The Hounds lost by a total of six goals, with the final score being 17-11. This once again drops the Hounds below that golden .500 win percentage level and makes a late season playoff push even more important.
Will the Chesapeake Bayhawks continue to improve, or get caught overlooking the Ohio Machine? Will the Charlotte Hounds hold on to their playoff spot, or give it up to the Boston Cannons?
