July 15, 2017; Columbus, OH, USA; Denver Outlaws @ Ohio Machine at Obetz Fortress Field.

Riding a four-game winning streak, the Denver Outlaws (5-4) will seek to extend their winning streak to five straight games as they travel to Ohio to take on the defending MLL champion Ohio Machine (2-6) on Saturday, June 23rd at 4 p.m. MDT.

The Outlaws have been able to find their groove during their four-game winning streak, with their offense outscoring opponents 76-47 and the Outlaws being led by veteran attackman Eric Law (38 points), veteran attackman Matt Kavanagh (33 points), attackman Kylor Bellistri (19 points), and rookie Chris Cloutier (20 points).

The Outlaws have continued to hold a strong 4-1 home record, but have struggled on the road with a 1-3 record. One area of improvement needed as the regular season winds down with a pivotal game against powerhouse Chesapeake Bayhawks on July 28th.

The last game between these two teams was on June 7th, in which the Outlaws would extend their winning streak to three straight games with a dominating 17-6 victory at Sports Authority Field with Outlaws attackman Kylor Bellistri notching 6 points (4 goals, 2 assists) to lead the way for the Outlaws.

Taking a look at the Machine

After winning the MLL championship last year, the Machine’s 2018 campaign has not gone the way they have wanted — as they currently sit second to last in the entire MLL.

Despite their disappointing season, the Machine are not a team that the Outlaws want to overlook. Attackmen Marcus Holman (35 points), former DU Pioneer Connor Cannizzaro (16 points), and Jake Bernhardt (15 points) can provide a punch for the Machine that the Outlaws must be weary of.
