Denver Outlaws (6-1) Never Trail As They Defeat New York Lizards (3-4) 16-11 On June 14


Denver Outlaws vs NY Lizards June 16

On Saturday night, in just his second MLL game, Curtis Dickson contributed a seven-point effort on four goals and three assists as Denver (6-1) rolled past the New York Lizards (3-4), 16-11. Anthony Kelly kicked the game off with his 3,000th career faceoff, and then Drew Snider got things going on the scoring front, netting the game’s first goal from straightaway. Eric Law scored the next two goals, and would have had a third goal had it not been overturned for a crease violation. Jeremy Sieverts bounced one in from just inside the arc on a dish from John Grant Jr. to close out the first quarter with Denver up, 4-0.

In the second frame, the Lizards finally got on the board with a nice shot from Rob Pannell, but Sieverts didn’t wait too long before getting the goal back—and then some. Sieverts wound up and fired, this time from behind the arc, and recorded his fifth two-point goal of the season to push Denver’s lead to five goals.

New York continued to battle, though, and goals from Steve DeNapoli and Max Seibald cut the Outlaws’ lead to three goals with less than five minutes to go in the half. But with the half coming to a close, Dickson fired in his first goal of the night and Snider netted his second of the game to give Denver some breathing room heading into the locker room.

Before the whistle blew, the Lizards fired one more shot on goal, but Jesse Schwartzman stopped it for his 1,100th career save.

The Outlaws scored six times in the third quarter—their highest-scoring third quarter of the season. Cameron Flint and Grant both scored on assists from Dickson—then Dickson did some scoring himself. With Denver up 10-5 after New York found the net three times in the quarter, Dickson ran to his right and fired a shot between the goalie’s five-hole for a goal. Then 41 seconds later, Dickson flew through the crease and fired in a shot before landing to give him a hat trick on the night. Dickson wasn’t done though, less than a minute later he netted another goal to give him four on the night and three within a two-minute span.

Cam Holding got his only goal of the night, and his first with the Denver Outlaws, as time ran out in the third quarter to give Denver a 14-5 lead heading into the fourth.

Snider opened the final frame with his third goal of the night on an assist from Dickson, and Law scored shortly thereafter. The goal was Law’s third of the night as well, giving him 20 goals on the season and five hat tricks this year.

Charlie Cipriano came into the game to replace Schwartzman in goal with 11 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. Schwartzman finished the game with 15 saves on 21 shots (.714 save pct.).

Denver Outlaws (5-1) Suffer First Loss In 25 Regular Season Games With 18-15 Defeat To Charlotte


The Denver Outlaws (5-1) dropped an 18-15 decision to the Charlotte Hounds (2-4) Saturday night on the road. Charlotte snapped Denver’s 25-game regular-season win streak, which dated back to June 23, 2012 and spanned 714 days. The game was a back-and-forth thriller and the two teams were tied a total of six times the entire night. The Hounds scored first and took a 3-1 lead into the second quarter, but Denver answered with a seven-goal second quarter, including a two-pointer on a power play by Jeremy Sieverts. Sieverts leads the MLL in two-point goals this season with four, and ranks first in Outlaws history with 17 career two-pointers. Charlotte took a 9-8 lead into halftime, but the teams traded leads and were tied three times in the third quarter, and headed into the fourth quarter all tied up at 12-12. Three different Denver players—Curtis Dickson, Jeremy Sieverts, and Drew Snider—recorded hat tricks, but Charlotte’s six-goal fourth quarter would prove to be too much for the Outlaws. Dickson scored his fourth goal of the night in his first game with the Outlaws to give Denver a 13-12 lead 27 seconds into the fourth quarter before Charlotte responded by scoring two goals in less than a minute. Domenic Sebastiani scored his second goal of the season to cut the Charlotte lead to 17-15 with two minutes left in the game, but John Haus secured the victory for the Hounds with his third goal of the night, giving the Hounds an 18-15 lead with just 17 seconds left in the game. Backup goalie Charlie Cipriano got the start for the Outlaws, the first of his three-year MLL career. Cipriano had 13 saves on 30 shots (.433) in the loss. His 13 saves and 60 minutes in goal were career-highs for the goalie. The Outlaws return to action at home Saturday, June 14 at 7 p.m. MDT when they host the New York Lizards for Film on the Field featuring The Amazing Spiderman.

Denver Outlaws (5-0) Defeat Charlotte Hounds (1-4) 13-11 On May 30 At Sports Authority Field


 The Charlotte Hounds came into Denver looking to hand the Outlaws their first loss of the season—the Bocklet brothers had different plans. Down 12-11 in the fourth quarter, Matt Bocklet wound up, shot and scored to tie the game. Just 50 seconds later, his younger brother Chris found twine to give the Outlaws the lead, as they went on to win, 13-11, Friday night at Sports Authority Field. Charlotte got on the board first with a goal from John Haus, but Denver scored the next five goals en route to a six-point first quarter. With just more than two minutes left in the first, John Grant Jr. cradled the ball by Charlotte’s net, hesitated, then fired—behind his back without looking—to give him his second goal of the night and the Outlaws a 5-1 lead. Eric Law also scored a pair of goals in the first quarter to give Denver a 6-2 advantage heading into the second quarter. The Hounds found the net four times in the second frame, but late goals from Grant and Law gave each player a hat trick before half time, and sent Charlotte to the locker room trailing, 9-6. Cameron Flint was ready to get back on the field after the break. He netted a goal less than a minute into the second half, but then the Outlaws went dry for the rest of the quarter. The Hounds went on a 5-0 run, capped by a pair of two-point goals to give them an 11-10 lead with less than 10 minutes to play in the game. Then, the Bocklet brothers stepped in to tie the game, and eventually take the lead. Grant scored again late in the quarter for good measure—his fourth goal of the game. Aside from marking the Outlaw’s 25th straight regular-season victory, some individual players marked special occasions, too. Matt Bocklet picked up his 300th groundball in an Outlaws jersey and Anthony Kelly won his 1300th career faceoff. Fresh out of college, Colin Dunster and Jeremy Noble made their MLL debuts. Dunster took his first career shot on goal, and Noble picked up his first two MLL points on a pair of assists, the first of which came on a first-quarter dish to his former University of Denver teammate, Eric Law. The Outlaws return to action on the road against the Charlotte Hounds on Saturday, June 7, 5:30 p.m. MDT.

Denver Outlaws 2014 Season Preview: Talented Team Looks To Be Playoff Battle Ready


2013 Record: 14-0, lost to Charlotte Hounds in the first round of the playoffs Key Losses: Brendan Mundorf (A) Key Additions: John Grant, Jr. (A) 2013 in Review: The regular season was nothing short of impressive for the Denver Outlaws, who flaunted an untouchable record of 14-0 entering the post-season and had a league-record five team members named to the 2013 All-MLL Team. The Outlaws were so dominant that the closest they came to being beaten pre-playoffs was a two-point victory over the Chesapeake Bayhawks, who would go on to win the Steinfeld Trophy against the Charlotte Hounds, 14-12. Despite their unstoppable momentum entering the playoffs, however, the Outlaws were eliminated in the first round by the Hounds, even with a record-breaking nine-goal performance from rookie Eric Law. 2014 Preview: Having now been ousted from the first round of the playoffs for the third time in four years, the Outlaws will look to outlast the post-season this year, with hopes of contending for the Steinfeld Trophy. Last season, the thoroughness of the entire Outlaws roster was made evident when a record five players were named to the All-MLL team at the season’s close. Attack was held up by Chris Bocklet and Brendan Mundorf, the midfield was led by Jeremy Sievert, and the backend was upheld by defenseman Lee Zink and goaltender Jesse Schwartzman who were named Warrior Defender and Goaltender of the Year respectively. Denver will be a force to be reckoned with as they see four out of those five players return this season. Their ability to perform at every position was backed by numbers, too. Last year, the Outlaws led the league in goals scored, goals-against, power play goals and penalty kill percentage. Their 226 goals scored is only a single back-netter short of tying the all-time league record, and their low 136 goals-against is tied for the fifth-fewest of all time. With all-star rookie Eric Law now having a season under his belt, their offense can only grow with 50+ point producer Chris Bocklet, and his artillery of attackmen including Drew Snider, who accumulated 46 points, and Jeremy Sieverts, who collected 44. Although the Outlaws’ offense will undoubtedly miss Brendan Mundorf, who was among those top tier scorers with 41 of his own points, they hope to complement the returning cannons with 2012 Cascade Rookie of the Year Matt Gibson. In 2012, Gibson scored 18 goals and 15 assists in 12 games, and in 2013, although he played in half as many matchups, he was still able to accrue 1.5 points per game, offensively contributing every time he was on the field. Not only will they come out of the gate firing, but the Outlaws should also harbor an impenetrable defense with Lee Zink, and record-breaking Jesse Schwartzman in net, who set the new League record for goals-against average at 9.27, breaking his own record in the process. 2014 Prediction: The Outlaws always fare well in the regular season; however, the problem with making it to the post-season every year is having to contend in the playoffs every year, something Denver hasn’t been able to see through to the end since the team’s inception.
