Overall a great video from Tufts University summing up their championship-winning season. Very well put together, directed and edited by Tufts ’04 graduate Drew Innis. Definitely worth the watch, and will get you hyped for the 2015 season. This past year JumbosLaxTV has been putting out great content regularly, and they’re definitely worth the sub.
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.
For the first time in NLL history, the Knighthawks have won the championship three years in a row. Rochester completed the triumph after winning the mini game 3-2 against the Calgary Roughnecks. The way NLL playoffs are formatted is so that there are two game series, and if the games are split, a ten-minute mini game immediately follows the final series game. After being down 1-0 in the series, Rochester came back with a 16-10 win featuring many saves from star goalie Matt Vinc and eventually took the cup in overtime.
