Bayhawks today

Pro Lacrosse

July 31, 2005|By Kate Crandall

Matchup: Boston Cannons (7-2) vs. Bayhawks (9-0)

Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson University

Time: 6 p.m.

TV/Radio: Ch. 2 (11:35 p.m., tape delay); 1300 AM (live)

Outlook: If the Bayhawks win today's final home game of the season, they will seal the top seed in Major League Lacrosse's playoffs and cap a reversal of last year's 1-5 home record. Baltimore won the first game this season between the only teams with winning records in the six-team league, 20-17, overcoming a 12-8 halftime deficit with a 7-1 fourth-quarter run. The Cannons' 17 points were a season high against the Bayhawks. In that game, on July 16, Bayhawks rookie Brodie Merrill held the Cannons' Mark Millon, the league's all-time leading scorer and former Bayhawk, to just one one-point goal and Boston G Chris Garrity (12.6 goals-against average) posted a career-best 25 saves. Cannons A Mike Battista had two one-point and two two-point goals against Bayhawks G Trevor Tierney (10.9 GAA). The Bayhawks should get a boost with D Christian Cook's return from injured reserve. Last week, the Bayhawks routed the New Jersey Pride for the third time this season, 20-10, and the Cannons edged the Philadelphia Barrage, 11-10.
