In the battle to determine who would be tied with the first place Boston Cannons, the Chesapeake Bayhawks came out on top against the Denver Outlaws, 18-16.
Kyle Dixon had the hat trick and two of his shots were long shots that resulted in two points. Steven Brooks also had a hat trick while Ben Rubeor scored two goals.
In net, Kip Turner played all sixty minutes of action. He gave up fifteen goals (one two pointer) and made ten saves. Jesse Schwartzman played in entire game in the cage for the Outlaws, giving up fifteen goals (two two pointers) and making seventeen saves.
For the Outlaws on the offense, rookies Jordan McBride and Mark Matthews had four goals each. Veteran Brendan Mundorf also had the hat trick for Denver.
This is the Outlaws second loss of the season, their other loss being to the Cannons. So they have lost to the best competition. They are a team that wasn’t expected to do much this season, but have a talented roster that can still win some lacrosse teams and at the least beat up on the weaker teams.
The Outlaws are now two games out of first place while the Cannons and Bayhawks are tied for first place at 4-1. Next week the Outlaws will be taking on the Ohio Machine in Columbus while the Bayhawks will be playing the Charlotte Hounds at Navy Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis.
