Reviewing the last week of MLL action before the all-star game....
Denver beat Chesapeake in one of the biggest crowds in MLL history. In a ver rainy and overcast game, Matt Bocklet and Max Seibald had hat-tricks for the Outlaws. The rain created swamp at invesco made scoring difficult and the added pressure of the tough Denver defense made it hard, as Denver held the Chesapeake attack at bay to win the Fourth-of-July games, 12-10.
The Long Island Lizards beat the Chicago Machine in a must-win game. The Lizards were down by four points with 9:30 left in the game before scoring the next four goals and five points, thanks to Chris Fiore's two point shot. Chris Rotelli scored with 0:04 on the clock to tie the game, but !:42 in, Zack Greer scored the game winner for Long Island.
The Nationals defeated the Cannons, 15-13 to better their record to 3-5 and continue their win streak. The Cannons scored the first two goals, the first a first career goal for Stephen Boyle. You can read the rest of my Cannons-Nats recap here
