Boston Cannons Lose In Thriller To Denver Outlaws At Veterans Memorial Stadium, Drop First Game Of Season

The Boston Cannons have lost their first game of the MLL season. 

On Saturday the Cannons hosted the Denver Outlaws and ultimately fell 17-16 in what was a back-and-forth thriller at Veterans Memorial Stadium 

For the Cannons this was their first loss of the MLL season as they drop to 3-1 on the 2019 season. 

Boston was battling with Denver up until the very end with the game winning goal coming by Zach Runberg who scored with 20 seconds left in the game. 

Two Boston players scored 4 goals with Mark Cockerton and Kyle Jackson both tallying four scores. In net, Nicolas Marrocco made 12 saves on 29 shots and was under immense pressure by a talented Denver team that moves to 4-1 on the season and first place in Major League Lacrosse.

The Cannons next game will be on 7/7 when they travel to Dallas to take on the Rattlers for the second time this season.

Boston Cannons Fall To Atlanta Amidst The Blazing Heat



Boston Cannons Fall To Atlanta Amidst The Blazing Heat At Veterans Memorial Stadium, Now Onto The MLL All-Star Game

In a Saturday night scorcher at Veterans Memorial Stadium the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) fell to the Atlanta Blaze 15-12 in a disappointing home loss.

With the loss the Cannons fall to 5-3 on the season as they head into the MLL All-Star break and are 1-1 in 2019 against Atlanta. 

The score at the half was 7-7 but Atlanta jumped to end the third with a 4-goal run which ultimately led them to victory. 

“I think a big thing [in] this game was unforced turnovers. We had quite a few of those,” said Cannons Head Coach Sean Quirk. “Giving them those possessions, Atlanta’s got a great offense, so they capitalized off that. And then groundball opportunities. Groundballs are possessions, possessions are goals, and goals are wins. We just didn’t win that battle today. We got to play a little bit tougher and bounce back from this one.”

Will Sands was the leading goal scorer for Boston with 3 on the night while their goal leader Mark Cockerton was held to just one tally, his 25th on the season. 

In net MLL All-Star Nicolas Marracco made 21 saves on 34 shots

“We knew they were a good team,” said Marrocco. “We tried to play more of a full game, offensively and defensively, but obviously it’s a game of runs. We had a run at one point, and we knew they were going to go on a run, and they did. It’s lacrosse. That’s what happens. They got a couple lucky bounces. Unfortunately, we didn’t come out on top.”

With the all-star break coming up the Cannons will have the chance to take a breather from a game perspective, but plenty of them are headed to the All-Star festivities

“Going into the All-Star Break, you get some rest,” said Quirk. “You regroup a little bit and refocus. The last two weeks, playing four games, it’s a grind. We just got to be ready to go come the second half of the season for sure.”
