It’s Week 12 in Major League Lacrosse and the chase for four playoff spots is heating up. Rochester Rattlers (8-3) sit atop the MLL standings with Denver Outlaws (8-3). The hottest team in MLL, New York Lizards (7-4) are close behind. The fourth and final playoff spot is going to be tightly contented as Boston, Ohio and Florida are all currently 5-6.
Florida does control their own destiny as they face Boston the next two weeks in a home-and-home series before closing the regular season at Ohio. The Machine will host struggling Denver on Saturday and finish with New York and Florida.
Losers of two of their last three, Denver will try to make it two wins in-a-row this week against the Machine. The Outlaws were 7-1 before losing at Rochester on June 29. A comeback victory over Florida last week has Denver helped, but are the Outlaws finding their form?
