Last year’s inaugural Beanshot Lacrosse Tournament went off without a hitch and was a huge success for some summer MCLA lacrosse. Northeastern would take the title with a 9-5 victory over New Hampshire in the Championship game.
Check out all the highlights below!
This year, Muscle Milk has teamed up with the Boston Cannons to make the 2nd year even better! All four teams from last year, Northeastern, New Hampshire, UConn, and Boston will return for another run at glory.
In partnering with the Cannons, the Championship will take place on the very field where the Boston Cannons will host the New York Lizards following the Tournament. How about that?!
This year’s Beanshot Tournament has the makings to be even better than last year, which has us asking one question. Why aren’t other MCLA teams trying to organize something like this?
