National League Lacrosse: Colorado Mammoth Is NLL’s Only Unbeaten Team At 4-0 In Their Best Start Since 2005

The Colorado Mammoth remain the NLL’s only unbeaten team through Week 4 and retain the top spot in the ILIndoor.com power rankings.

The Mammoth (4-0) got three goals and four assists from league scoring leader John Grant Jr. in a 14-11 win over the Rochester Knighthawks last Saturday night. It’s the best start by Colorado since 2005, when they won their first five games.

Coach Bob Hamley’s team will try to match that Saturday when they face the Edmonton Rush at the Pepsi Center. The game is set to begin at 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NLL Network at NLL.com

John Grant Jr. had three goals and four assists, pushing his league-leading point total to 37, as the Mammoth topped the Knighthawks 14-11 on Saturday night. Grant, who played 10 seasons with Rochester, told ColoradoMammoth.com that this matchup held special meaning for him.

“I was looking forward to this game a little too badly,” he said. “It’s a team I played 10 years with and I owe a lot to the organization. I really wanted a win in this barn and we got it.”

Colorado remains the only unbeaten team in the league and will play three of its next four at the Pepsi Center, considered one of the most raucous arenas in the NLL.
