PPL Park in Chester, Pa., will host the 2013 Major League Lacrosse Championship Weekend, sources confirmed to Inside Lacrosse today. The news comes on the day of the MLL Collegiate Draft in downtown Philadelphia and just days before the league is set to announce a 2013 regular-season game at Kennesaw State near Atlanta, a move that could foreshadow an expansion team there. PPL Park, about 20 miles southwest of Philadelphia, was a 2012 NCAA quarterfinal site and is the home to the Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer.

PPL Park in Chester, Pa., will host the Atlantic Coast Conference men's lacrosse tournament in 2014 and 2015, the conference announced Wednesday. It will mark the first time in eight years that the tournament has been held at a neutral site.

Next season will be the fourth time in the 26-year history of the tournament that the event has been held at a neutral site.

As a result of opening the season with seven consecutive wins en route to a 9-2 overall record and a 3-1 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 6 Maryland has not had to worry too much about its postseason fate. That level of comfort, however, could be detrimental to the Terps. They have split their last four games, a stretch capped by Saturday's 11-6 loss to No. 5 Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays (8-3) collected a victory that they sorely needed to avoid repeating last year's absence from the NCAA tournament, and Maryland coach John Tillman said his players could not match the intensity and effort put forth by Johns Hopkins.

The Maryland men's soccer program will appear in its 13th overall College Cup and eighth in coach Sasho Cirovski's tenure, and as a reward, the team will tangle with Virginia for the third time this season on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The Atlantic Coast Conference rivals drew to a 3-3 tie in their first meeting on Oct. 11 before the Terps (16-3-5) scored a 1-0 decision over the Cavaliers in the ACC tournament final on Nov. 17.

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.

Saturday's 2-1 win against Loyola cemented the Navy men's soccer team's first Patriot League regular-season championship since 1991. To coach Dave Brandt, it is a nice accomplishment, but it pales in comparison to a greater prize. "I think it has to be muted," Brandt said Wednesday morning of the team's reaction to capturing the regular-season crown. "That's great to do that. Ultimately, we've got another regular-season game and the bigger deal is to win the Patriot League playoff championship.

For the first seven games of his college soccer career at Maryland, freshman Michael Sauers came off the bench as a reserve, and that suited him just fine. "It's funny, because I wasn't really expecting to play at a big-time school like Maryland,” the Glen Arm native and Archbishop Curley graduate said. “But once they recruited me, I was like, 'Wow, I'm going to take advantage of this.' The first thought that came to mine and my parents' heads were, 'How much playing time am I going to get?

Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Chicago's Soldier Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the finalists to host the 2015 to 2018 men's lacrosse championships, the NCAA announced Wednesday. Notably absent was the state of Maryland; Baltimore has hosted the event five times in the past decade. The NCAA said this summer that in response to declining attendance at the event, it would consider holding the event at smaller venues , but Wednesday's announcement indicates that it will continue to hold the championships at NFL stadiums.

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.
