Major League Lacrosse: Denver Outlaws Lose 4th Quarter Lead And Game 10-9 To Boston Cannons On July 30 At INVESCO At Mile High


The Boston Cannons defeated the Denver Outlaws 10-9 in a back-and-forth match Saturday night in front of a crowd of 7,804 at INVESCO Field at Mile High.

Despite a two-goal fourth quarter lead, the Outlaws were unable to snap their losing streak, which was extended to a franchise-record four games. It marks the second time this month that Boston was able to beat Denver, clinching the season series against the Outlaws and a playoff berth.

With the loss, the Outlaws fall to 5-5 on the season and descend to a tie for third place with the Chesapeake Bayhawks in the league standings.

Entering the fourth quarter, Denver held a thin one-goal advantage. Drew Westervelt completed his hat trick early in the quarter, whipping it past Boston goalie Jordan Burke to put the Outlaws up 8-6 with under 14 minutes to play.

Brad Ross scored a power play, two-point goal later in the quarter to tie the contest at eight. It was Boston’s second power play goal of the contest.

Brendan Mundorf completed his own hat trick with 3:59 to play, giving the Outlaws a 9-8 lead.

Boston scored back-to-back goals within the next three minutes as Max Quinzani and Kevin Buchanan each scored past Outlaws goalie Jessie Schwartzman.

The Outlaws regained possession with 54 seconds in regulation, but lost possession 17 seconds later and Boston was able to run out most of the remaining time.
