ROCHESTER RALLIES FOR OVERTIME WIN, 27-26

DENVER, Colo. - Midfielder Colin Doyle scored the game-winning goal with 6:32 remaining in overtime as the Rochester Rattlers (2-2) won their second straight game, a 27-26 victory over the Denver Outlaws (2-2) in the highest scoring game in MLL history at INVESCO Field at Mile High on Saturday evening.

Doyle, who scored two goals with four assists in the win, converted a pass from attackman Jeff Zwyicki to end the Rattlers' five-game road losing streak, dating back to last season.

The Rattlers jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the first eight minutes as Zwyicki scored three times while Bud Light MVP John Grant, Jr. tallied two of his team record-tying eight goals during the spurt. After the teams traded goals twice, the Outlaws scored three quick points to narrow the margin to 8-5 at the end of the first quarter.

The teams traded goals four times during the second and third quarters before Denver tallied five unanswered goals to take a 15-13 lead with 4:41 left in the third quarter. Attackman Matt Brown scored three goals during the spurt, which gave the Outlaws their first lead of the game.

Zwyicki ended the Outlaws' run with an unassisted goal, but attackman Brendan Mundorf answered by converting a feed from attackman Mike Law past goalkeeper Mike Levin, which was followed by a Grant tally to end the third quarter with Denver holding a slim one-point advantage.

Midfielder Chris Schiller tied the game just six seconds into the fourth quarter, which was followed by back-to-back two-point goals from Langtry and attackman Matt Hanna for a four-point advantage. However, the Rattlers countered by scoring three straight goals, including a two-pointer from attackman Joe Walters, to tie the game at 22-22.

Led by two goals from Langtry, the Outlaws regained a four-point advantage with a three-point run with 3:32 left in the fourth quarter. Grant scored his second two-point tally of the game with 2:19 left, an unassisted marker past goalkeeper Trevor Tierney, before Zwyicki tied the game with 1:51 left off a Grant assist.

Rookie attackman Drew Westervelt scored with 54 seconds remaining off a feed from midfielder Jeff Sonke to give Denver a two-point lead before Grant tied the game with a two-point goal with 39 seconds left in regulation.

After Walters hit the crossbar earlier in overtime, Doyle provided the game-winner to give Rochester its first win on the road since June 3 of last season at Los Angeles.

Grant led the Rattlers to the victory by tying the Major League Lacrosse single-game record with 14 points, scoring eight goals, including a pair of two-point tallies, along with four assists. His eight goals tied the Rochester team record set by Casey Powell during the 2003 season. Zwyicki scored a career-high six goals and added three assists.

Langtry led the Outlaws in the loss with a team-high five goals, including a pair of two-point markers, along with an assist while Brown and Mundorf each tallied five goals with an assist. Snider won 28 of 56 face-offs and also had a goal with an assist.
