The Charlotte Hounds secured their first win of the season and showed flashes of the team they will become. At this point, the league is showing some separation with Denver alone in first place while Ohio, Chesapeake and New York are now 2-1 and tied for second…

MLL: New stars emerge for league in week 3

2014 MLL Championship Game - Denver Outlaws v Rochester Rattlers
May 12, 2017

I went into the third week of Major League Lacrosse with some serious doubts. There was no way that the league could keep up the level of play and close games from their first two weeks, right?

Depth is a huge issue as the roster has turned over since the days of holding the title at the end of Championship Weekend. Chesapeake looks to return to form this summer and add players who will be staples in their lineup every week. Of the fourteen games played in 2015, only three players played in all…
