Midfielder Paul Rabil scored four goals and led an early onslaught that lifted the Boston Cannons to a 16-10 victory over the Chesapeake Bayhawks at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Midfielders Kyle Dixon and Peet Poillon (UMBC) scored two goals apiece to lead the Bayhawks (4-5), who have suffered four straight losses and fell behind 9-0. Rabil, the reigning Major League Lacrosse Most Valuable Player, scored three goals in the opening six minutes. Rabil's 2-point goal gave him an early hat trick and put Boston ahead 5-0. Midfielder Matt Poskay added two goals while rookie attackman Max Quinzani contributed a goal and an assist. "That first quarter killed us. Giving up nine goals in a game is bad, let alone nine in one quarter," Bayhawks defenseman Mike Evans said. "It's tough to come back from that kind of deficit, but I think we showed some heart by coming back and getting within three at one point."
