A wet forecast and a meeting with the league's top-seeded team hasn't dampened the Chesapeake Bayhawks' confidence heading to into the Major League Lacrosse playoffs this weekend at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. A quick glance at Chesapeake's roster shows numerous players who have already won championships as professional or college players. So, even though they finished league play at 6-6 and enter the postseason as the fourth seed, the Bayhawks have swagger heading into Saturday's game against the Boston Cannons, who swept them during the regular season by an average of 5.5 goals.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks' 15-14 overtime loss to the previously winless Boston Cannons on May 18 has lingered on Dave Cottle's mind for the past two weeks. And for the Bayhawks' coach, that's long enough. Because Major League Lacrosse teams don't play on Memorial Day weekend, Cottle's squad has waited 13 days between games after what he called a disappointing loss in Boston. So when the Bayhawks (3-1) host the Hamilton Nationals (4-0) Saturday night, not only will they get to test themselves against one of two undefeated teams left in the league, they'll also finally have the chance to erase the one-goal loss to the Cannons from their memory.

Of the 287 goals Paul Rabil has scored as a midfielder for Johns Hopkins and the Boston Cannons, 62 have been assisted. Not counted there is a big assist from a longtime rival of Rabil's: Dave Cottle. After deciding to pursue lacrosse, Rabil transferred to DeMatha High in Hyattsville following his freshman year at Watkins Mill in Gaithersburg. He then attended a lacrosse camp where Cottle was coaching. Rabil recalled how Cottle challenged the roughly 200 campers to take 100 shots per day. "Everyone's like, 'Psh, no way,'" Rabil said as the keynote speaker of The Baltimore Sun High School Athletes of the Year luncheon on May 28. "And he's like, 'It's got to be a real 100 shots, counting holidays, counting blizzards.

Adversity hit the Chesapeake Bayhawks early during the team's season opener Sunday against the Boston Cannons. And it struck in the worst possible spot. Minutes into the game, Bayhawks goalie Kip Turner (Severn) took a shot to the groin, better described by Turner as "the place you don't want to get hit," and had to leave the game. By the time it ended, the rest of the Bayhawks had taken a beating of their own. Chesapeake was shredded by Cannons midfielder Kevin Buchanan (Calvert Hall)

A star lacrosse player turned the world topsy-turvy Tuesday for a group of dyslexic middle schoolers. "It may be difficult for you guys to understand now, but a learning disability can be a gift," Paul Rabil told a gathering of about 100 students at the Jemicy School in Owings Mills. Rabil, 27, said his own struggles with auditory processing disorder in the classroom helped him on the athletic field, where he became a three-time first-team All-American midfielder at Johns Hopkins and, now, a standout with the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse.

The already prodigious legacy of Casey Powell grew Thursday night in the Bayhawks' 13-12 victory over the Boston Cannons. The former four-time All-American and Major League Lacrosse's second-leading scorer all time had three goals and an assist for the Bayhawks in his first game of the season, but it took just one goal to remind fans of what they've been missing while he's been gone. With Chesapeake trailing 12-11 with less than 10 seconds to go, Powell raced behind the Cannons net with the ball in his stick.

It became a common sight on the Byrd Stadium sidelines this spring. Maryland men's lacrosse long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt would stand next to volunteer assistant coach Brian Farrell during pregame warm-ups and at halftime, seeking brief feedback, instruction or maybe even a quick laugh. "Brian was someone I could talk to about what was going on," said Bernhardt, who graduated in May. "He really helped me out just by recognizing the game and giving me little tips. He's a guy I could look to in any situation.
