Major League Lacrosse Championship for Lacrosse Magazine

140823_laxmag_mll_championship_2260I recently had the opportunity to photograph the Major League Lacrosse championship game,¬†held at Kennesaw State University’s Fifth Third Bank Stadium, for Lacrosse Magazine. It’s not every day that I get to photograph the championship game of a major league sport, so I was super excited about this assignment. Lacrosse is obviously less covered by the media than other major league sports in this country, and that’s a good thing if you’re a photographer. Less coverage means less restrictions, less photographers on the sidelines, less stress, and well, better pictures. Here, Denver Outlaws defenseman Matt Bocklett and teammates celebrate with the Steinfeld Cup after defeating the Rochester Rattlers in dramatic fashion.

The Rattlers held a comfortable lead most of the game, but ultimately lost in an exhilarating final few minutes of play. With about five minutes left, midfielder Jeremy Sieverts made a two-point goal to tie the game at 11. And with less than a minute left, Outlaws midfielder Drew Snider scored the game-winning goal. It was beautiful.

Here is a selection of my favorite photos from the game, which was held on Aug. 23, 2014.
