For the fourth time in their 12-year history, the Chesapeake Bayhawks have claimed the title of Major League Lacrosse champions.
Led by four goals from midfielder Ben Hunt, including a pair of two-point markers, the Bayhawks overcame an early two-goal deficit to earn a convincing 16-6 victory over the top-seeded Denver Outlaws in front of 7,384 fans at Harvard Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The win allowed the Bayhawks to become the first team in Major League Lacrosse history to win four league titles. Meanwhile, the Outlaws had their seven-game win streak snapped, dating back to last season.
The Bayhawks improved to 10-4 all-time in the playoffs. They won MLL titles in 2002, 2005 and 2010 and were making their sixth appearance in the title game.
