BOSTON, MA – The Boston Cannons used a 14-goal first half to build an insurmountable lead in a 23-14 win over the Ohio Machine. Mark Cockerton, who was acquired by the Cannons from the Ohio Machine in exchange for Davey Emala, scored eight goals against his former team.
Cockerton, James Pannell and Zed Williams led a prolific attack for the Cannons with each recording two goals in the first quarter. From that point, Cockerton took over, with four goals in the second and gave the Cannons a 14-3 lead at halftime.
The Machine showed some fight in the third, led by Bryce Wasserman who recorded four goals and one assist in the game.
Boston's Max Seibald, playing in his final Major League Lacrosse game with fellow Cornell graduate, Mitch Belisle, had four assists.
The Cannons finished the season at 5-9, which marked a two-win improvement on last season. Ohio finished in last place with a 3-11 record.
