Major League Lacrosse: “2013 MLL All-Star Game” Features Team Supernova Defeating Team Eclipse 24-15 On July 13 In Charlotte, NC (Video)
Team Supernova used a nine-goal fourth quarter run to take over and defeat Eclipse 24-15 in Saturday’s MLL All-Star Game, presented by Moe’s Southwest Grill from American Legion Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.
Hamilton’s Kevin Crowley was the star of the show, earning Most Valuable Player honors after a three-goal, two-assist performance.
Although the game was played in rain for much of the contest, the numerous fans in Charlotte, over six thousand, created a great atmosphere for an entertaining game.
Supernova, captained by MLL Ultimate Fan Fantasy winner Frank Ranfone, dominated the decisive fourth quarter, outscoring Eclipse, captained by UFF winner Cameron MacKenzie, 9-2 in the final frame. Denver’s Zack Greer scored the first goal of the quarter for Eclipse to make it 15-14 in favor of Supernova, but Supernova dominated the rest of the quarter scoring the next nine goals to stretch the lead to an insurmountable 24-14 score. Crowley and Boston’s Kevin Buchanan lead the fourth quarter charge with two goals each.
Sieverts finally put an end to the Supernova run with his second goal of the night, to bring the game to a 24-15 final.
Other than the final quarter, it was a tight, highly competitive contest that featured great play from both sides.
Supernova got off to a quick start, scoring the first two goals of the game with Crowley tallying the game’s first goal less than a minute into the game. Ohio’s Steele Stanwick followed that goal with a tally of his own to push the score to 2-0.
New York’s Rookie attackman Rob Pannell got Eclipse on the board when he received a feed from his Lizards teammate Greg Gurenlian and ripped a right-handed shot past Denver’s Jesse Schwartzman.
