For their first trip back onto a field since winning their fourth MLL title, the Chesapeake Bayhawks will play the Denver Outlaws in a pre-season rematch of the 2012 Championship game.
Splitting the series 1-1 during last year’s regular season, both teams entered the title game ready for tough competition. After Denver secured both the win and the top seed for the playoffs in their last regular season meeting with Chesapeake, the Bayhawks were eager for a rematch.
Throughout the Championship game, Chesapeake’s attack and defense were simply too much for the Outlaws, resulting in a dominant 16-6 victory. With a six point, two goal performance by Ben Hunt, a stout showing by the Bayhawks defense, and a solid day in goal by Kip Turner (recording 12 saves), Chesapeake made history scoring their fourth title in 12 years.
Although there is no Championship on the line, this scrimmage is bound to be a great night of lacrosse where we can see a mix of some new and older faces when both sides hit the field, as well as get a preview of what’s to come for the 2013 season.
The pre-season game between Chesapeake and Denver will take place at Spalding High School on Saturday, April 20
th, at 7 p.m.
