Denver Tops Rochester For First MLL Title
Down early, things did not look good for Denver. Their typical “give it to Junior and see what happens” was getting shut down, and Rochester was having a day on offense. The Outlaws managed to turn things around towards the middle, closing in on a 5-1 difference but ultimately heading into the fourth still down 10-6. They came into the final quarter strong, and ended up outscoring the Ratz 6-1. Two key goals came from both Jeremy Sieverts, a two-pointer from beyond the arc to tie it up, and Drew Snider, who let loose the game-winner with 56 seconds left in the game. 39 year-old John Grant Jr. was awarded MVP of the game with four points on the day. Overall an exciting day in Atlanta as the Denver Outlaws pulled out a 12-11 victory for their first ever MLL Championship in 9 years of existence.
