The Outlaws have only lost one game in the last 357 days.
That loss came to the Chesapeake Bayhawks in the 2012 Steinfeld Cup Championship Game.
Denver got a measure of revenge for that game’ outcome with a 13-9 victory over the Bayhawks at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday. The win improves the Outlaws’ record to 7-0 and gives Denver a two-game lead on top of the MLL standings.
“Some of the things we’ve tried to do while building a team were to try to compete better with the Bayhawks,” Head Coach Jim Stagnitta said on this week’s MLL conference call. “I think that’s a credit to Dave (Cottle) and what they’ve done with their squad.”
Eric Law kept his perfect shooting streak intact, leading all players with five goals. Law, who scored on all four of his shots in his MLL debut last week was 5-of-5 shooting on Saturday to increase his goal total to nine on nine shots.
While Law had no problem solving Bayhawks goalie Kip Turner, the Bayhawks goalie saved more than 70 percent of shots off the rest of the Outlaws’ sticks.
Both Turner and Outlaws goalie Jesse Schwartzman turned in strong performances to keep the league’s two highest-scoring offenses to a combined 21 goals. Schwartzman saved 17-of-26 shots (.654 pct.) and Turner stopped 19-of-32 (.594 pct) for the game.
Law, who scored the first goal of each of the four quarters, netted his first goal 4:23 into the game to open the scoring off an assist from Brendan Mundorf.
