Outlaws Season in Review

Alex Urquhart


The Denver Outlaws had the best regular season of any team in the history of the MLL. The Outlaws went  14-0 this season before they lost to the Charlotte Hounds in the first round of Championship Weekend.

The Outlaws set the new single season record for wins, finished third, all-time, in goals for, fifth, all-time, in goals against. Together with Jesse Schwartzman, who set a new record for goals against average, and Chris Bocklet, who finished at the top of the points leader board. The Outlaws also touted midfielders Jeremy Sieverts  and Drew Snider who were at the top, or near it, of the top scoring midfielders.

Denver showed the best balanced team to have played in the MLL in recent memory. Between an overpowering offense they showed a style of defense that was meant to grind opposing teams into dust. The defense, led by goaltender Jesse Schwartzman and close defenders Roy Dillon and Matt Bocklet, led the league in goals against, two point goals against, and penalty kill percentage.  All three led the league by large amounts, 76.6 PK percent, 136 goals against, and 3 two point goals against. On the offensive side of the ball the Outlaws led in almost every category. They led in goals for with 226 goals, were third in two point goals for with 10, and were second in power play percent with 42.9 percent.

The Outlaws had six players with 30 plus points this seasons, they included C. Bocklet, Sieverts, Snider, Brendan Mundorf, Eric Law, and Terry Kimener. The Outlaws also had six players with point totals from 10 points to 29 points.

The Outlaws once again dominated the regular season only to be bounced out of the Championship weekend in the first round of games. They will need to add one guy that will push them over the hump come next may. Although they could find a player from within the organization that could fit the role, but if they want to get back to the Championship game they will need to find the playoff finisher.
