KENNESAW, Ga. – For the first time in four years, Colorado has a professional sports championship team.

The Denver Outlaws won the Major League Lacrosse title Saturday night, edging out the Rochester Rattlers, 12-11, to claim their first-ever Major League Lacrosse title.

Drew Snider scored the game-winning goal with 56 seconds left in the contest, after the Outlaws trailed the entire second half, and by as many as four goals in the 4th quarter alone.

MLL veteran John Grant Jr., was named Championship MVP for the second consecutive year--- becoming the first player to do so in MLL history.

Head Coach B.J. O'Hara became the first coach in MLL history to win two championships with two different teams. Ironically, the other championship coming in 2008 with the Rattlers, the same team that the Outlaws defeated in 2014.
