The National Lacrosse League is currently in the offseason but some prominent NLL players are staying busy by playing summer ball in Major League Lacrosse which featured four MLL games this past weekend.

The Denver Outlaws (5-0) stayed unbeaten with a 24-14 win over the Boston Cannons (1-4) on Friday. Philadelphia Wings transition player Paul Rabil, who leads the MLL with 25 points, recorded seven points (2+5) for the Cannons in the losing effort while Wings teammate Brendan Mundorf, tied for fourth in league scoring with 18 points, and Edmonton Rush forward Zack Greer both scored a hat trick for the Outlaws in the win.

The Charlotte Hounds (2-3) beat the Long Island Lizards (2-3) with a 14-12 win on Friday. 2013 NLL Entry Draft prospect Rob Pannell, who won the Tewaaraton Trophy with Cornell University last week as the NCAA's most outstanding lacrosse player, scored a hat trick in his pro debut for the Lizards and was named Rookie of the Week. Minnesota Swarm teammates David Earl and Matt Gibson each scored a goal for Long Island while Edmonton Rush forward and 2013 NLL Rookie of the Year Mark Matthews also found the net once in Long Island's loss.

Philadelphia Wings transition player Jordan Hall scored the overtime game-winner as the Hamilton Nationals (5-0) continued their perfect season with a 12-11 OT win over the Chesapeake Bayhawks (3-2) on Saturday. A trio of Rochester Knighthawks came up big for the Nationals, who are owned by Knighthawks owner/GM Curt Styres, as Stephen Keogh scored a game-high five goals to earn Player of the Week honors while Cody Jamieson and Joe Walters both posted four points (1+3). Three Wings players contributed as well as Hall and Kevin Crowley, who ranks second in the MLL with 22 points, each scored twice while Brodie Merrill, currently second in the league with 34 ground balls, also added a goal. Wings forward Drew Westervelt and Colorado Mammoth forward John Grant, Jr. both scored a pair of goals to keep the Bayhawks in it.

2013 NLL Transition Player of the Year Jordan MacIntosh led the Rochester Rattlers (2-3) to a 9-7 victory over the Ohio Machine (0-4) on Sunday by scoring a hat trick, including the game-winning goal, while Ned Crotty (Philadelphia Wings) contributed a goal in the win. The Machine were powered by four goals from former Ohio State University attackman Logan Schuss, who is projected to be the first overall pick in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft. Minnesota Swarm transition player and NLL Rookie of the Year runner-up Kiel Matisz scored twice in the loss.
