DENVER OUTLAWS PICK UP SIXTH CONSECUTIVE WIN IN FRONT OF NEARLY 30,000 FANS

July 5, 2018



DENVER — The Denver Outlaws (7-4) won their sixth consecutive game with a 25-11 victory over the Boston Cannons (3-8) in front of nearly 30,000 fans on Wednesday night at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. The crowd of 29,973 at the team’s annual Mile High Fourth of July game, presented by Xcel Energy, marks the fourth largest in Major League Lacrosse history.

Rookie attackman Chris Cloutier had another dominant outing, totaling nine points on six goals and three assists. Playing in just his fifth career game, Cloutier has now recorded 36 points (24 goals, 12 assists) on the season.

Fellow attackman Matt Kavanagh added seven points and midfielder Mikie Schlosser scored his fourth hat trick in the last five games.

Faceoff specialist Max Adler won 28-of-39 faceoffs (71.8 percent) against the first-overall selection in the 2018 Collegiate Draft, Trevor Baptiste. A graduate of the University of Denver, Baptiste is the NCAA’s all-time leader in faceoff wins.

Goalie Jack Kelly led the Outlaws on the defensive end with 12 saves on 18 shots before being relieved in the fourth quarter by Dillon Ward.      

Adler won 7-of-9 faceoffs in the opening quarter and helped the Outlaws jump out to a 6-3 lead. Denver went on to outscore Boston 5-1 in the second period and took a commanding 11-4 lead into the halftime break.

Trailing 14-4 midway through the third, the Cannons edged closer with three consecutive goals, but Denver would close the game on an 11-4 scoring run that spanned the final 18 minutes.

Denver is on a bye next weekend and will be back in action on July 22 at home against the Dallas Rattlers.
