The Peterborough Examiner - - SPORTS -

The Den­ver Out­laws fell one goal short of cap­ping John Grant Jr.’s come­back sea­son with a Ma­jor League Lacrosse cham­pi­onship.

The Ch­e­sa­peake Bayhawks edged the Out­laws 10-9 in the MLL fi­nal on Sun­day af­ter­noon in Den­ver.

Grant came out of two years re­tire­ment at age 44 to serve as a player/of­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor. He scored 21 goals in 14 reg­u­lar sea­son games. He took back the ti­tle of MLL all-time scor­ing leader he lost last year to Paul Ra­bill.

Grant scored five goals in Satur­day’s 17-15 semi­fi­nal win over Bos­ton Com­mons. Peter­bor­ough’s Zach Cur­rier had two goals and three as­sists for Den­ver in the semis. Grant and Cur­rier scored one goal each in the fi­nal.
