Charley Toomey couldn't help but reminisce May 31 when he flicked on the television to watch the Charlotte Hounds play the New York Lizards in a Major League Lacrosse matchup. As Hounds attackman Eric Lusby tied a game high with three goals and rookie Mike Sawyer added two scores in Charlotte's 13-7 victory, the Loyola coach thought back to when the duo led the Greyhounds' run to the 2012 national championship. "Eric and Mike were both such great shooters for us and you're seeing that at the next level," Toomey said.

Midfielder Peet Poillon (UMBC), who was making his season debut, scored two goals for Chesapeake, which put less than half its shots (17 of 35) on goal. Attackman Brendan Mundorf (UMBC)

To be fair, the Chesapeake Bayhawks' defensive effort in Sunday's 10-9 victory over the Charlotte Hounds in the Major League Lacrosse championship final at PPL Park was a team-wide one.

The news and social media website Mashable has pulled together its top 50 stunning sports photos of the year from Getty Images' Year in Focus archives, and Mount St. Joseph and Washington College grad Stephen Berger is No. 3 on the list. Berger, a midfielder who began the season with the New York Lizards, is shown yelling his way through two rows of kids and high-fiving them during player introductions before a May 31 game at Hofstra. It might've been the highlight of that night for Berger, who didn't have any points and took only one shot on goal in a 14-12 loss to the Charlotte Hounds.

In a blockbuster deal before Tuesday's Major League Lacrosse trade deadline, the Boston Cannons sent rookie attackman Steve Mock and a 2014 first-round Collegiate Draft pick to the New York Lizards for midfielder Stephen Berger (Washington College, Mount St. Joseph) and second- and sixth-round 2015 Collegiate Draft selections. Berger was tied for third on the team with 10 goals this season and was fourth in points (13). He has played seven of his eight seasons in the league with the Lizards, spending the 2012 season with the Charlotte Hounds and being named All-Star Game Most Valuable Player that season.

John Grant Jr. and Casey Powell left an indelible mark on the Chesapeake Bayhawks' 10-9 victory over the Charlotte Hounds in Sunday's Major League Lacrosse final at PPL Park. Grant scored four goals against No. 4 seed Charlotte and totaled six goals and one assist during championship weekend, earning the nod for Most Valuable Player. Powell chipped in one goal and two assists against the Hounds and finished with two goals and three assists in two playoff contests. But the future of the Bayhawks attackmen is somewhat murky.

At Virginia, Kyle Dixon was more of a playmaker than a scorer. After the Bayhawks drafted him in 2006, the midfielder altered his game, recording more goals than assists. In 2013, his eighth season in Major League Lacrosse, Dixon has gone back to his college roots. Although he isn't scoring as many goals, the Millersville native and 2002 Archbishop Spalding graduate has already set a professional career high in assists this season. "It's definitely been a more assist-heavy season for me," Dixon said.

Perhaps it's fitting that two of lacrosse's most celebrated - and older - players enjoyed one more moment atop the sport's landscape. Proving that age is just a number, attackmen John Grant Jr. and Casey Powell powered the Chesapeake Bayhawks to a 10-9 victory over the Charlotte Hounds in the Major League Lacrosse title game Sunday at PPL Park before an announced 3,792. The No. 2 seed, which finished the regular season with a 9-5 record, captured the franchise's fifth Steinfeld Trophy and joined the 2006 and 2007 Philadelphia Barrage as the only teams in league history to claim back-to-back crowns.

Dave Cottle doesn't mince words. In the same conference call Wednesday in which he declared that the Chesapeake Bayhawks were “not afraid” of the Major League Lacrosse-leading Denver Outlaws, the Chesapeake Bayhawks coach colorfully described his thoughts on the Charlotte Hounds' three-game winning streak heading into Saturday's regular-season finale at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. “I don't care about Charlotte's momentum. That means nothing to me,” Cottle said.

Denver Outlaws midfielder Drew Snider (Maryland) was named Major League Lacrosse's Most Improved Player, the league announced Thursday. Snider earned six first-place votes from the league's coaches and general managers, two more than fellow former Terp Ryan Young of the Charlotte Hounds, who tallied four. The Chesapeake Bayhawks' Ben Rubeor (Loyola High) and the Hamilton Nationals' Kevin Cunningham and Jeremy Thompson each received a pair of first-place votes.  A second-year midfielder, Snider made a strong case for Most Improved Player -- not because he performed poorly in his rookie season, but because he has played outstanding lacrosse in 2013 for the Outlaws, who are 14-0 and became the first team in MLL history to go undefeated in the regular season.

CHESTER, Pa. -- After a physically and emotionally draining 13-12 victory over the Hamilton Nationals in Saturday's semifinal of the Major League Lacrosse playoffs at PPL Park, the Chesapeake Bayhawks probably won't have to do much studying on their last opponent of the 2013 season. That's because the No. 2 seed and reigning league champion tangled with the No. 4 seed Charlotte Hounds on Aug. 10, emerging with a 16-14 decision at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.
