The Chaos started the season with two straight losses and things looked rough for them with the Whipsnakes and the Archers up next. Instead of folding and starting 0-4, the Chaos decided to upset the two best teams in the league in back-to-back games. They held the Archers to their lowest scoring output in team history winning this one 8-7 on Friday night. John Galloway played tough in cage for the Chaos putting up 13 saves in the win. Colin Heacock scored 4 goals on the day including the game winner in the fourth quarter.
The Redwoods and Waterdogs blew the over/under out of the water on Saturday seeing each team score 10 first half goals. Both teams starting goalies found the bench at some point in the second half, and it was Jack Kelly getting the W in cage for the Redwoods, a great story. Kelly tore his ACL in 2018 during the World Games and this was his first action since the injury. Sergio Perkovic lead all scores in this game with 8 points off 4 goals and 2 assists (including two 2-point goals).
The Cannon’s may have lost to the Chaos on Saturday, but on the bright side, Paul Rabil is now professional lacrosse’s (the field version) all time points leader again thanks to his 3 goal, 3 assist effort. Alas, the Chaos played the better game and pulled out the win. Josh Byrne went for 2 goals and 3 helpers in the win, and rookie’s Ryan Smith and Mac O’Keefe each put up 4 points.
