Major League Lacrosse (MLL): Denver Outlaws (4-1) Defeat Hamilton 15-7 On June 18 Behind Brendan Mundorf’s 4 Goal, 4 Assist Performance

Denver (4-1) took the lead early and never took the foot off the pedal, using a 9-0 first-half run to coast to a 15-7 victory over Hamilton (1-3).

Hamilton jumped on the board first with a goal from Cody Jamieson on its initial possession. Denver responded with nine consecutive goals, sparked by a Billy Bitter bouncer.

Max Seibald gave the Outlaws a 2-1 lead, showing his speed as he sprinted past All-MLL Defender Brodie Merrill for his third goal of the season.

Drew Westervelttallied his league-best fourth man-up goal of the season and then Brendan Mundorf, who earned Bud Light Player of the Game honors, followed with Denver’s first shorthanded goal of the season – and just the third in the MLL this year.

“There are a lot of guys that have been together and we’ve added some new guys who are playing well,” Mundorf said. “Today we started out the game well and it’s always helpful to get the goalie on his heels.”

Brian Langtry added his fourth score of the year to make the score 5-1 after the first quarter.

Bitter and Seibald each notched their second goals of the game to open the second quarter and push the Denver advantage to 7-1. The streak continued as Bitter notched his second career hat trick with a man-up goal at the 5:36 mark. He was assisted on the goal by Mundorf, who would add his second goal of the night just 29 seconds later.

Joe Walters broke Hamilton’s 21:53 scoring drought with a marker at 7:51 of the second quarter to make end the Outlaws’ 9-0 run.

Mundorf, who set a franchise record with 10 points (6 G, 4 A) vs. Hamilton in the season opener on May 14, registered his second hat trick of the season off Westervelt’s second assist of the game to make the score 10-2. He finished with eight points (4 G, 4 A) which tied for the second most in his career and third most in franchise history.
