September 8, 2019 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) News Release
BOSTON, MA - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) had a decisive weekend. Without any upsets this weekend, the top four teams in MLL punched their tickets to Championship Weekend. Fans coming to Denver can look forward to seeing the Denver Outlaws, the Chesapeake Bayhawks, the Atlanta Blaze and the Boston Cannons compete.

The current ranking of the four teams is:
Denver Outlaws (9-5)
