By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports)
Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced its 30 man roster for their upcoming All-Stars vs. Team USA rematch, which is scheduled to take place Thursday, June 28th at Harvard Stadium at 7 p.m.
The MLL All-Stars faced-off against Team USA four years ago prior to the Americans finishing first at the World Lacrosse Championship, which was held in Denver, Colorado. This year’s championship will take place in Israel.
Team USA edged the MLL All-Stars, 10-9, thanks to Rob Pannell‘s game-winning goal with seven seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
Kevin Rice (Atlanta Blaze) and Will Manny (New York Lizards) headlined the MLL All-Star roster, while the Boston Cannons will be represented by Will Sands, Brandon Mullins and Sergio Perkovic.
Joe Walters of the New York Lizards was also named to this year’s MLL All-Star roster – this will be his ninth appearance in the league’s All-Star Game, while Kyle Harrison and Brian Karalunas, who play for the Ohio Machine, will be appearing in the contest for the seventh time, respectively.
“We are thrilled to invite 30 of the best players in the world to represent MLL in this year’s All-Star Game,” MLL Commissioner Alexander Brown said in a statement earlier today.
“Not only will the best players in the world be on display, but this grudge match has historically proved to be one of the most exciting events our game has to offer. For any lacrosse fan, this game is one that they will not want to miss!”
