Major League Lacrosse: Denver Outlaws (8-3) Defeat Boston Cannons 17-13 On July 19 To Pull Within A Half-Game Of First PLace
Attackman Brendan Mundorf scored three goals and added four assists as the Denver Outlaws edged the Boston Cannons at Harvard Stadium to pull within a half game of first place Thursday. Jesse Schwartzman, who was named the Bud Light MLL Player of the Game, anchored the team’s defense with 17 saves. Mundorf, Jordan McBride and Drew Snider all netted hat tricks for the Outlaws (8-3).
Attackman Chris Bocklet put Denver on the board in the first five minutes of the game before Cannons attackman Matt Poskay answered 16 seconds later with an unassisted goal, his first of two on the night — including his 200th career goal.
After a slow start, Mundorf gave the Outlaws their second lead of the night with two minutes remaining in the first quarter. The Cannons (6-5) answered again, this time with an unassisted goal by attackman Ari Sussman, who also netted a hat trick, with less than a minute remaining in the quarter.
Midfielder Pat Heim saw his third goal of the season early in the second quarter to give the Cannons their first and only lead of the night. The Outlaws scored three straight goals including two from McBride and two from attackman Jeremy Sieverts, one of which was a 2-point marker.
Ryan Boyle scored for the Cannons two minutes into the second half to close the margin by one goal.
Both teams exchanged goals in the third quarter; each team scoring five goals. Drew Snider and Peet Poillon both tallied two goals while Brendan Mundorf completed a hat trick for the Outlaws.
Team USA avenged each of those defeats – the first two for any U.S. U19 team since sanctioned U19 international competition began – in the medal rounds, downing the Iroquois in the semifinals, followed by a 10-8 win over Canada in front of a capacity crowd of 1,200 on Saturday.
“It was quite an effort,” Team USA coach Tim Flynn said. “We had a little phrase after the game, ‘From the outhouse to the penthouse.’ They became a family off the field. They learned how to play well together. They really put everything together in the last two games.”
Like it did in the semifinal win Thursday, the U.S. dominated the middle of the field in the championship, winning 17 of 22 faceoffs as a team. Charlie Raffa won 10 and Tyler Barbarich seven while attackman Matt Kavanagh, named tournament MVP after finishing the competition with 19 goals and 15 assists (4.85 points per game), scored two goals and had two assists in the final. The defense held Canada scoreless during the second quarter, in which the U.S. scored four times to go ahead 6-2 while winning 7 of 8 draws.
