MLL Power Rankings

August 5, 2013

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'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.



Last Week

Power Ranking



Denver Outlaws



Another week, another win. New York proved to be a test for Denver, but in the end they moved to 13-0, clinching the best record ever for an MLL team, and also putting the squad one win away from a perfect regular season, a feat never before accomplished in Major League Lacrosse.

Hamilton Nationals



Although Hamilton dropped a 14-11 decision to Charlotte, the Nationals still remain among the League leaders in many categories. Crowley is tied for second in points and is second in goals, Queener remains first in the League in save percentage, and Walters and Cunningham are still one and two in assists. Hamilton will need to use all of its weapons to beat the undefeated Outlaws this weekend and to make a run for the Championship.

Chesapeake Bayhawks



A win last weekend against Rochester cemented the Bayhawks' place in Championship Weekend presented by Smartlink. They have a solid shot to repeat and defend their title as 2012 MLL Champions.

Boston Cannons



It's their first time since 2009 that they won't be making an appearance in post season play. While the Cannons have always been known as a threat, it was a tough season for them. While the hard work was there, the team wasn't able to click as a whole. Losing to Ohio on Saturday was probably the toughest loss they had to face this season. This week they'll face Rochester in their last regular season game at home like they did in the 2011 season and won with an overtime victory; hopefully they'll be able to pull out another victory.

Charlotte Hounds



The Hounds are shaping up into an impressive team, with a huge win over Hamilton the Hounds finally find themselves over .500 on the season and with the best record in franchise history. Matt Danowski pulled through again, with another huge game, 7points, proving that he can and will be the difference-maker on this young team. The Hounds now have 165 goals on the season, third in the League, a valuable stat when it comes to defeating opposing defenses.

Rochester Ratlers



The Rattlers were officially knocked out of playoff contention and will play in their last game of the season this weekend. As it has been all season, their offense struggled and in my opinion is the weak link of their team.

New York Lizards



The Lizards showed some fire this weekend against the Outlaws, they need to keep this up against the Machine this weekend to stay out of last place.

Ohio Machine



This weekend's 16-12 win over Boston has been a long time coming, as their level of play has picked up significantly over the last five weeks. Everything finally fell into place for the Machine, and they showed just how good they can be when they don't suffer quarter-long lapses. The offense, led by rookie Logan Schuss was firing on all cylinders, and a defense backed by a hot Scott Rodgers shut down Paul Rabil. Look for the Machine to continue the momentum this weekend against New York and end the season on a high note.
