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.

Four days after losing a late lead against the Ohio Machine and falling into last place in Major League Lacrosse, the Chesapeake Bayhawks made a move geared toward the future. In the lone deal Tuesday before the trade deadline, the Bayhawks (3-7) acquired midfielder Kevin Crowley and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLL college draft from the Florida Launch in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes.

By rallying from a five-goal deficit in the third quarter to overcome the Charlotte Hounds, 16-14, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Saturday night, the Chesapeake Bayhawks (9-5) earned the No. 2 seed in the Major League Lacrosse playoffs and will face No. 3 seed Hamilton Nationals (9-5) Aug. 24 at 4 p.m. at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

CHESTER, Pa. -- Living dangerously seems to appeal to the Chesapeake Bayhawks. For the second game in a row, Chesapeake overcame a fourth-quarter deficit and snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat. On Saturday, the No. 2 seed rallied from an 11-8 hole to edge the No. 3 seed Hamilton Nationals , 13-12, in a Major League Lacrosse semifinal at PPL Park . In a 16-14 win on Aug. 10 against the Charlotte Hounds - whom the Bayhawks will tangle with Sunday for the title - the reigning league champions scored the final five goals.

CHESTER, Pa. -- An article I wrote for Saturday's editions detailed how Kip Turner was just one of three goalkeepers since 2005 to record a save percentage of at least 60 percent in the Major League Lacrosse postseason and how he parlayed that performance into propelling the Chesapeake Bayhawks to the championship last season - their fourth Steinfeld Trophy in franchise history. With a 53.8 save percentage (14 saves on 26 shots) in No. 2 seed Chesapeake's 13-12 decision against the No. 3 seed Hamilton Nationals in Saturday's semifinal at PPL Park, Turner is off last year's pace, but the most significant result is that he and his teammates are one victory away from capturing back-to-back titles.

Of the four teams in the Major League Lacrosse playoffs, the Chesapeake Bayhawks are the only one with four Steinfeld Trophies. But the No. 2 seed and reigning champion (9-5) is almost an afterthought as the lacrosse world eagerly waits to see whether the top-seeded Denver Outlaws can cap the league's first undefeated regular season with a championship at PPL Park in Chester, Pa., this weekend. And that's fine with Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle. “This weekend should be about Denver,” he said during a conference call Wednesday.
