In week 6 of the MLL season, Wings players were back at it in the outdoor game making headlines with their strong play. Drew Westervelt lit up the New York Lizards to kick off the weekend with an eight goal effort to lead his Bayhawks to a 19-8 victory on Thursday night in New York. Max Siebald, who sat out the entire Wings season with a leg injury, made his first appearance of the season. Rookie defenseman, CJ Costibile scored his first career goal in the Lizards loss.
A battle of the unbeatens took place in Colorado when the Hamilton Nationals and the Denver Outlaws put their 5-0 records on the line Saturday night. Hamilton’s Kevin Crowley and Denver’s Brendan Mundorf provided their team’s offensive firepower, each scoring four goals. Mundorf’s Outlaws were dominant in a 22-9 win over the Nationals, handing Hamilton their first loss of the season while improving their own record to 6-0.
