Boston Cannons – 15, Dallas Rattlers – 11
A winless Rattlers team heading into this matchup was looking for redemption. However, they would find no sympathy from Boston, as the Cannons blasted the Rattlers in front of Dallas’ home crowd.
Eight different scorers registered points for the Cannons, as they improved to 4-1 on the season while the Rattlers stayed winless at 0-6.
Long-pole goals are nice, but 2⃣-point long-pole goals are better to watch.

In a true back-to-back for the Blaze, Atlanta burned the Lizards for 12 points in their win on Sunday. The game was neck-and-neck for the entirety of the game, as each quarter saw the score all-tied up at the end of the period until Atlanta managed to pull away in the fourth.
