It wasn’t as close as last year’s final, but that doesn’t mean it was any less dramatic. A year after losing to the Denver Outlaws in the last seconds of the 2016 Steinfeld Cup, the Ohio Machine roared to life in the fourth quarter on Saturday night for a 17-12 win over the Outlaws to capture their first Major League Lacrosse championship. Marcus Holman’s natural hat-trick in the fourth-quarter was…

Two late two-point goals didn’t even get the Rochester Rattlers close to overcoming the fourth quarter nine-goal run by the Denver Outlaws in Saturday’s Major League Lacrosse semi-final game. The Outlaws, 15-8 winners, will defend their 2016 Steinfeld Cup win next Saturday in Frisco, Texas at the league championship game against the Ohio Machine. “We’re thankful were going to have the opportunity [to defend the title],” head coach B.J. O’Hara…

August 10, 2017

Coming back after missing any amount of playing time is an adjustment for any athlete, but can you imagine coming back after two knee injuries right in the middle of one of the most intense playoff series of all time? That’s the situation Brock Sorensen finds himself in. The Peterborough Lakers’ defender rejoined the Major Series Lacrosse franchise on August 2nd for game two of their semi-final series against the…

The road to the Mann Cup begins on Tuesday night as the Peterborough Century 21 Lakers start the MSL playoffs against the Brooklin Redmen in game one of the first-round best-of-seven semi-final series. The first-place Lakers were scheduled to face the fourth-place Oakville Rock, but a league-wide scheduling adjustment to save on travel costs has them facing the third-place Brooklin Redmen instead. Only one point separated the Rock and Redmen in…

As the 2017 Major Series Lacrosse regular season draws to a close this week, only one thing is left to be figured out, and that is which team will take first place. All season, the Peterborough Lakers and Six Nations Chiefs have been in a dogfight for first place. Each team has only lost once; the Lakers to the last-place Cobourg Kodiaks and the Chiefs to the Lakers. Assuming the Chiefs…

PETERBOROUGH, ON – The Peterborough Century 21 Lakers and Brooklin Redmen of Major Series Lacrosse are familiar foes, having enjoyed many battles over the years. There comes a time, however, when on-floor rivalries take a back seat to real-life. This coming Tuesday, July 18 and Wednesday, July 19, the Lakers are proud to lend their support to Canadian Blood Services as they host a blood-donor clinic in honour of Tucker Williams. Tucker, the eight-year-old son…

What could have been a magical, though improbable run by the Peterborough Jr. A Lakers probably came to an end on Monday night as they went down 12-11 to the Brampton Excelsiors at the Peterborough Memorial Centre. With just 12 seconds to go and down by just one, some sleight-of-hand by the Lakers Riley Morgan gave the home team a needed face-off win for the last possession of the game….

The Georgia Swarm’s recent victory in the Champion’s Cup was fortuitous for the National Lacrosse League for two reasons: one, it showed that young franchises can prosper, and two, it showcased the Thompson brothers, the best players in the game. As the NLL actively searches for expansion partners, showcasing two of their youngest franchises was the best scenario they could have hoped for. Granted, both the Rush and Swarm have…

Week three of Major Series Lacrosse action saw only one team remain undefeated as the Peterborough Lakers took down the Six Nations Chiefs 7-6 in the battle of the best. The Lakers now sit atop the MSL standing with their perfect record and the contentment (for now) of knowing they bested their fiercest rivals. The Chiefs dropped to second place while Brooklin failed to gain any ground going 1-1. Oakville…

MSL week 2: Oakville falters but otherwise business as usual

June 12, 2017

Week two in the MSL saw more of the same: a lot of patchwork rosters. A clearer picture developed, however, of how the season might go. The Brampton Excelsiors’ early success fell off, while the Cobourg Kodiaks maintained their status quo of trying hard but not quite getting there. There are no words to what the Peterborough Lakers did to the Excelsiors on Thursday, while the Six Nations Chiefs picked…
