Outlaws rookie Jeremy Noble said his first Major League Lacrosse point had a feeling of familiarity. That makes perfect sense because the assist Noble made, and its recipient goal scorer, is a play he's made literally hundreds of times before.
Noble found his former Denver Pioneers teammate (and current Outlaws teammate) Eric Law on the door step of the goal to give the Outlaws a 4-1 advantage in what would eventually become a 13-11 win. It was one of Law's three goals on the evening, one less than John Grant Jr.'s game high four scores.
"I went up to him (Law) after and told him 'just like the old days," smiled Noble. "It was fitting to go to Eric. If I pass him the ball, it's probably going in the net."
Despite it being his first game with the Outlaws, Noble said he felt comfortable playing with guys like Law and fellow DU alum Cam Flint. Coach B.J. O'Hara paired the midfielder Noble with both Flint and Law for most of the first half.
The win now gives the Outlaws twenty-five consecutive regular season victories in Major League Lacrosse, a streak that dates back to June 2012. If the Outlaws can win their next three games, they will have made it two full calendar years without a loss. Their next game will be a rematch in Charlotte (June 7th at 5:30pm MT) against the Hounds.
