Kimmel's goal in OT gives Bayhawks win

August 08, 2010|By Sports Digest

Midfielder Michael Kimmel scored 1:29 into overtime to lift the visiting Chesapeake Bayhawks to a 16-15 victory over the first-place Boston Cannons in the final game of the Major League Lacrosse regular season Saturday night. Kimmel, the team's first-round draft pick out of Johns Hopkins, dodged down the alley and placed a 15-yard right-handed shot into the lower left-hand corner. Boston took a 15-12 lead with less than five minutes left in regulation, but midfielder Kyle Dixon (Archbishop Spalding) scored a 2-pointer with 3:50 remaining and tied the score in the final minute. The Bayhawks will be seeded fourth for championship weekend and will have a rematch with the Cannons in the semifinals Aug. 21 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
