Denver has been selected as the host city for the 2019 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Championship Weekend. The MLL Semifinals will take place Friday, Oct. 4 at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium at the University of Denver while the MLL Championship will take place at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Sunday, Oct. 6. This is the first time in the league’s 19-year history its championship game will be played in Colorado.
Season Summary A .500 season for most teams can be good or bad, depending on who the team is. But a .500 season for Holy Cross is one worth highlighting. The Crusaders finished .500 for the first time since 1988. And it was interim head coach Peter Burke who helped steer the way. Burke was installed as the interim boss after Judd Lattimore was let go midway through the 2018 season.
The team began 2019 losing their first two games to Providence and Vermont. But for the majority of the remainder of the season, Holy Cross looked like a dangerous Patriot League team. After beating UMass Lowell, the Crusaders upset Harvard for the second consecutive season in overtime. The team then lost their next three games to Loyola, Bucknell, and Army West Point, but they weren’t blown out. Holy Cross lost by four to Loyola which saw the Crusaders trail by one at the end of the third quarter. They gave up the game’s final three goals to the Bison in a three-goal defeat before falling to the Black Knights by a single tally.

What lessons from playing sports have helped you in your career?
CE: I was a captain my senior year at Lehigh in both basketball and lacrosse, and I think all the time about how those formative years gave me the confidence that, when I joined the business world and saw mostly men around me, I could succeed. Before that, I grew up playing against my brothers in the backyard. My mother always said, “You’ve done well because you grew up alongside five boys and you had to be competitive, but at the same time be a team player.”
Here’s a little segment from 3KSN on the growth of lacrosse in the heartland & the Wichita Wingmen club team.
As Lars Tiffany reflected on that incredible day — on how Virginia completed its return to the top of the college men’s lacrosse world by dismantling defending NCAA champion Yale with stunning, surgical efficiency — the Cavaliers coach acknowledged the trying times that fortified his team. Tiffany, who was hired to replace coaching legend Dom Starsia following the 2016 season, came to Charlottesville with an overarching mission: Get Virginia back to its once-assumed place among the Division I elite.
Prett cool when one of your sons has a chance to meet and play catch with a former Blue Jay, National Champion and Broadway/Hollywood actor. Great to have Kevin Kilner back at Homewood. pic.twitter.com/P6r9qvwKO1— David Pietramala (@CoachPetro43) July 23, 2019
Here’s a great video from our friends up north.
WATCH: When it comes to girls playing lacrosse you may typically think of the outdoor field game or not at all, but one group of youngsters in Regina (@qcmbl) were trying to buck that trend this season. @DuffyGlobal has more. pic.twitter.com/sPpYgAXtMz— Global Regina (@GlobalRegina) July 18, 2019
