Former Marquette defenseman B.J. Grill and the Denver Outlaws will face off with the Ohio Machine in Saturday night’s Major League Lacrosse championship game.
Denver defeated the New York Lizards one week ago in a goal-heavy 20-17 semifinal contest. The Outlaws used a four goal advantage in the second period to take the lead and played even the rest of the way against New York, which featured former Marquette defensive midfielder and new MU assistant coach Jacob Richard.
Top seeded Ohio stomped down on the Charlotte Hounds in the other semifinal game, winning 16-10 at the final horn. John Grant, Jr., who started the season with Denver before being traded, personified the Machine team nickname by finding the back of the net six times in that contest.
Grill has appeared in all of Denver’s games since joining the team in late May. He’s averaging just over 2.5 ground balls per game and one caused turnover per contest, aka standard issue B.J. Grill stuff.
