Outlaws Advance to 3-0 While Cannons Struggle for Answers

The Denver Outlaws have moved to 3-0 while the Boston Cannons have started their season 0-3, their worst start in franchise history for one of the oldest teams in the league. Drew Snider led the Outlaws with five points while Brendan Mundorf and Zack Greer each had two as well.

For the Cannons, Ryan Boyle’s two points moved him into first place all time in MLL scoring, but it was all for naught in the loss. In good news Matt Poskay stepped up with a three goal performance while Paul Rabil, Colin Briggs and Mike Stone each scored two as well, but the ten goal effort from the team was not enough.

With Jordan Burke’s injury the Cannons are left with Mike Gabel in net, who gave up 14 goals in their 14-10 loss. He made 11 saves in the contest. On the Denver side, Jesse Schwartzman shined with 17 saves and giving up just the ten goals.

Denver went up 3-0 early before the Cannons scored two straight from Rabil and Stone, but Denver goals from Greer and Justin Pennington made it a 5-2 Outlaws lead going into the second quarter.

It was 7-2 early in the second before Briggs and Poskay scored their firsts of the game, but Denver would lead 9-6 at half time. Denver lead 11-10 going into the fourth quarter and scored three goals, two from Snider and one from Mundorf, to close it out.

The Cannons struggled with faceoffs again as Chris Eck went just 11-for-27 against Anthony Kelly of the Outlaws. The Outlaws will finally get a chance to play at Mile High Stadium next week when they host the 1-2 Rochester Rattlers while the Cannons are back at home against the also undefeated Chesapeake Bayhawks.
