PHILADELPHIA — It had been 364 days since the Outlaws lost a game, but that streak came to an end with a 17-14 defeat to Charlotte in the MLL Semifinals on Saturday.
After Denver scored the game’s opening goal, the Hounds went on an 11-2 run to jump out to a lead that the Outlaws could not recover from. Charlotte won 15-of-20 faceoffs in the first half and turned those possessions into the most goals that the Outlaws allowed in a first half all year.
Attackman Eric Law was a bright spot for Denver in the first half as the rookie netted six of the team’s seven goals in the opening half.
