Israel Lacrosse Tops Turkey in International Play

ISTANBUL, TURKEY — The Israel men’s national lacrosse team made their international debut on Friday, topping Turkey, 13-9, at Sadi Gülçelik Sports Center on Friday.   Tel Aviv’s Mike Grosz scored the first goal in program history just three minutes into the match, and European official Henning Schmidt reacted by halting play to present the ball to Israel head coach Bill Beroza.   “It was kind of surreal,” said Grosz….

Martin Cahill Sent to Cannons for Brad Ross

Last night the Boston Cannons acquired midfielder Martin Cahill from the Rochester Rattlers for midfielder Brad Ross, I confirmed with a Cannons source earlier this morning. Cahill is a Boston native, but does not have any points this season. He had a career high eighteen points last season. Ross was a part of the MLL Championship the Cannons won last season, and was actually a vital part of the offense….


Nationals Win Second Straight Match

Hamilton shows everyone they are for real by dominating Rochester in every way. The game started off close and had the makings of a classic back and forth battle. That all changed early in the 2nd quarter as Rochester was unable to stop Hamilton’s shooters from treating John Galloway like a star at a carnival shooting gallery. The Nationals took a 3-3 tie and blew the doors off it with…

MLL Week Seven Power Rankings

Things have gotten confusing. The Cannons are losing games. Rochester has emerged, and then fallen again, while Long Island is dominating. It all makes out for some interesting power rankings. 1. Chesapeake Bayhawks- The Bayhawks are playing all around good lacrosse right now. They’ve taken over first place by themselves, and are clicking everywhere they have to. They deserve to be atop the rankings. 2. Long Island Lizards- I’m a Lizards believer….


Bayhawks Move into First Place

The Bayhawks welcomed the Hounds with open arms before sending them packing early. The Bayhawks cruised to a 15-7 win behind a big first quarter that saw them open up a 7-1 lead, behind a Drew Westervelt hat trick. For the first 5 minutes of the second it looked as if Charlotte was going to make another dramatic comeback as they did the week before against Hamilton but it wasn’t…
