MLL Power Rankings


 

During the 2013 MLL season, Major League Lacrosse will be using a power ranking system to show fans how their favorite team stacks up against the competition. A teams' power ranking is based on cumulative season statistics, as well as voting conducted by MLL.com's contributing writers. After raw scores from the two are combined, teams will then be rated on a scale of 1-100. That final number will represent a team's power ranking for that week.

Denver Outlaws

97

Denver moved to 12-0 after a tough test from the Bayhawks. Chesapeake was able to shut down Bocklet and Mundorf, but the Outlaws showed how deep they are with their midfielders stepping up to lead them to a win.

Chesapeake Bayhawks

63

Despite their loss to Denver this week, the Bayhawks held the Outlaws to one of their lowest scoring games of the entire season. Drew Westervelt continues to bolster the Bayhawks offensive game and Casey Powell has added new fuel to the fire. If they Bayhawks can keep their offense on the upswing there will most likely be a Chesapeake-Denver rematch in the playoffs.

Hamilton Nationals

63

Hamilton clinched its spot in Championship Weekend with a 17-12 win over Boston. Rookie Garrett Thul had a career-high six points against the Cannons, proving that the Nationals have yet another offensive weapon. Brett Queener even tried his hand at offense, scoring the second goal of the contest, in addition to making 17 saves. The Nationals are heating back up as the end of the season nears.

Boston Cannons

49

With Boston on a roll in the middle of the season, things seemed to be looking up for the Cannons and post season play was back in their sights after a 1-5 start. Now, with two games left, they are in a difficult situation with the possibility of elimination if they don't pull out two big wins. Facing Ohio and Rochester for their last two regular season games, the Cannons have all the parts to get the wins, they just need to put it together.

Charlotte Hounds

48

The Charlotte Hounds showed what they are capable of this past weekend as they visited the Ohio Machine. Mason Poli continued to display defensive dominance, and was even scored a goal of his own, keeping him tied as the leading defensive scorer in the league. A young team, the Hounds seem to have found a groove, and also remain the league leader in two-point goals.

Rochester Ratlers

44

Four out of the five Rochester wins have come when scoring 13 or more goals. There's little secret that this teams biggest weakness is the front line. Against New York, all 13 goals were scored by midfielders and defenders. The Rattlers face Chesapeake next, a must-win in my book.

New York Lizards

36

After being eliminated this week from the playoffs, the Lizards need to finish strong so they don't end up in last. They can't go out without a fight.

Ohio Machine

20

After encouraging results the last three weeks, the Machine fell back into old habits, conceding six straight goals in the second quarter on the way to another loss. They only lost by three, but giving up six straight can't happen if they hope to win another game this year. Boston will pose another tough challenge this week.
