The rematch of the Major League Lacrosse championship had the same result, with the Boston Cannons coming out on top. This time Boston won 18-9, with most of their roster back in action. The Cannons are now 3-0 on the season, tied for first place with the Denver Outlaws.
Boston led for the entire game except for in the first period when Hamilton tied it at 1-1. They scored seven in the fourth quarter to wrap it up. Kevin Buchanan, Ryan Boyle and Mike Stone each had three goals a piece to lead the Cannons.
Paul Rabil, Matt Poskay and Chris Eck also all had goals. Eck, the face off man, actually had two break away goals. For the Nationals, their offense came from three goals by Kevin Crowley, two from Jeremy Thompson, and singles from Dan Deckelbaum, Rhys Duch, Brodie Merrill and Adam Jones.
Scott Rodgers and Brice Queener each played thirty minutes in net for the Nationals. Queener made seven saves and gave up ten goals, while Rodgers made seven and gave up eight. Jordan Burke played all sixty minutes in net for the Cannons. He made nine saves and allowed nine goals.
The Cannons broke their attendance record last night with 11,277 in their championship rematch. The Cannons lead the league with 53 goals, three ahead of second place Denver. They have the second least goals against, behind Rochester. I wouldn’t want to have to play this team.
