I was fortunate enough to spend another day at Endicott College photographing the Boston Cannons Major League Lacrosse game….this time against none other than the New York Lizards and their Paul Rabil. The Boston/New York rivalry exists on the lacrosse field as it does on the court, the rink, and in the end zones of other major league sports. Both teams were phenomenal to watch and at many points during the game the score was tied. After an unreal beginning to the 4th quarter, the Cannons were able to rally and finish the game up 15-13.
As with before, I was struck by not only the fast paced and action packed game, but also the incredibly fan-friendly environment. Lacrosse is no joke and the speed, agility, and fierceness demonstrated on the field is in stark contrast to the friendly and engaging fan experience that takes place on the sidelines after the game. Which simply adds to its appeal.
The two games at Endicott College were part of the Boston Cannons Cannons in Your Community initiative that’s goal was to bring Major League Lacrosse to both the North and South Shore areas. The South Shore games took place in Hingham.
Endicott was a spectacular venue for a large sporting event and nothing would make me happier than hearing that the Cannons will be returning next summer. That being said, I look forward to heading into Boston later this season to catch the action on their home field at Harvard Stadium.
The Cannons’ next home game is on Saturday, July 28th at 5:00 pm

As part of their newly launched “Cannons in Your Community” initiative, the Major League Lacrosse team is bringing fast-paced and action packed lacrosse to Boston area towns including Beverly’s Endicott College and Hingham.
The Cannons home field is at Harvard Stadium, but the team is happy to be bringing games to other communities as well.
The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced today that the club has created a new initiative to bring select regular season home games to two greater Boston communities in 2018. The Cannons will play one game at Hingham High School in Hingham, MA, and two games at Endicott College in Beverly, MA. The “Cannons In Your Community” effort is focused on strengthening the team’s community outreach and increasing direct engagement with greater Boston area lacrosse fans.
“We’re extremely excited to bring Cannons lacrosse to the communities of the South Shore and North Shore, both are very passionate about the sport,” said Cannons President Ian Frenette. “While our game continues to grow at a significant pace, we need to continue to do our part to drive the continued growth and engagement with current and prospective lacrosse fans in their towns. This initiative is going to give fans an even closer look at Cannons action in an intimate environment and provide us the opportunity to reach new fans by bringing the game to their neighborhood.”

The boys and I attended yesterday’s game at Endicott College and had an amazing time. The energy and enthusiasm was palpable and fans were able to get super close to the action. The opportunity to see such a high level sporting event in such an intimate setting is one not to be missed.
After the game the players spent 30 minutes interactive with fans, posing for photos, and signing autographs. My boys talked endlessly about how friendly the players were and how cool it was to get to meet them. The team is spot on with their hopes that experiences like “Cannons in Your Community” will help introduce more fans to this great game.
This is such a phenomenal opportunity to attend a major league sports event. Be sure to mark your calendars for June 23rd and don’t miss this chance to watch the Boston Cannons take on the New York Lizards back at Endicott College @ 6:00 pm
