Outlaws fall in overtime to Rattlers, suffer second-straight loss

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

After a tough fight, the Denver Outlaws (0-2) fell 15-14 in overtime to the Dallas Rattlers (2-1) on Sunday in Dallas.

The Outlaws would continue to push the pace with help from attackman Matt Kavanagh (five goals), Eric Law (four goals) and rookie attackman Cam Milligan scoring two goals in his Major League Lacrosse debut.

Through all that scoring, history was made, as Law’s first goal would mark his 200th career point. In doing so he became the fourth player in Outlaws history to be able to accomplish this milestone.

Despite the historic night for Law, after the third quarter, the Outlaws would find themselves trailing 11-8. Denver did turn up the pace in the fourth quarter, going on a 6-2 scoring run to take the one-goal lead at one point.

But, with three minutes remaining in the game, the Rattlers came up with the equalizing goal to force overtime — where Rattlers attackman Ty Thompson would score the Rattlers game-winning goal to win it for the Rattlers.

The Outlaws will continue to seek their first win of the season next weekend, looking retribution against the New York Lizards (1-1) in their home opener on Friday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m. MDT.
