New Outlaw players looking to shine in final home game of the season

May 27, 2017; Denver, CO, USA; Rochester Rattlers @ Denver Outlaws at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Denver Outlaws (7-4) will look to extend its winning streak to seven straight games against the league-leading Dallas Rattlers (9-2) in a 12 p.m. matinee game on Sunday at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

With both teams missing star players while they represent their respective countries during the FIL World Championships, plenty of new faces will get the chance for the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) professional debut.

For the Outlaws, one of these new faces will be making history as Outlaws goaltender Kaisuke Iwamoto will start in goal against the Rattlers, becoming the first Japanese born player to play in the MLL.

Along with Iwamoto, the few other players who will be making their MLL debuts on Sunday are midfielder Peter Conley, goalie Matt Hanley, faceoff specialist Zach Melillo and attackman Connor O’Hara.

What is on the line?

Currently sitting in third place in the standings with three games remaining in the regular season, the Outlaws would be able to clinch a playoff berth with a win on Sunday, and losses from the Atlanta Blade and the Charlotte Hounds on Saturday night.

How to catch the action

Fans who are unable to attend the game will be able to watch the game streams on ESPN+ and Lax Sports Network. The game will also be rebroadcasted on Altitude Sports at 8 p.m. on Sunday.
