The 2014 Rochester Knighthawks made history by becoming the first NLL team to ever 3-peat in the Champions Cup. We talked to Joe Walters about the organization’s monumental accomplishment.
The Vancouver Stealth announced today that Head Coach and Vice President of Lacrosse Operations Chris Hall is retiring from coaching due to health related matters.
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.
Welcome to a Postseason Video Explosion! The college season may be over and done with, but the video is just getting good now. That’s kind of how it works. These things take time! Settle in, it’s going to be an awesome ride.

The West Division champion Calgary Roughnecks host the East Division champion Rochester Knighthawks for Game One of the 2014 NLL Champion’s Cup Finals series at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday, May 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
I really need to figure out what a “speed dodge” actually is. It can’t be as simple as just running by someone, can it?
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.
For a second there, it looked like things were headed back to business as usual and this whole “parity” thing was on its way out. Well, about that: After week three, five teams are sitting at 1-2, the teams that met in the 2013 Championship are at the bottom of the pile and once more, the league has turned us all into a bunch of season three Jon Snows, reminding us on a weekly basis that we, in fact, know nothing. Is it time to accept this as our new reality? It just might be.
Both of the top seeds went on the road and lost last weekend in NLL action. Edmonton went to Calgary and dropped a tough 12-11 decision to the Roughnecks. Rochester made the short trip on the Thruway to Buffalo and dropped a 12-8 game to a surging Buffalo Bandits.
