Jones scores five goals as Bayhawks come back to beat Cannons, 14-11

Midfielder Myles Jones scored five goals to lead the Chesapeake Bayhawks to a 14-11 come-from-behind victory over the Boston Cannons at Hingham High School in Massachusetts.

Jones put the Bayhawks on his back and carried them, repeatedly dodging to score himself or set up others. The third-year All-Star could have been credited with several hockey assists after drawing defenders or otherwise forcing the defense to rotate.

“I think Myles Jones has been the best player in Major League Lacrosse the last three games. He was absolutely outstanding tonight and scored big goals when we needed them,” Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle said. “Myles is a combination of a big man who can dodge and pass. He’s not turning the ball over like he did last season and is making really smart decisions.”

Attackmen Steele Stanwick and Colin Heacock scored two goals apiece for Chesapeake, which completed a four-game road trip with a 3-1 record. Veteran midfielder Matt Abbott also netted two goals for the Bayhawks, who trailed by four at halftime.

“I am really proud of these guys for getting three big wins on this extended road trip,” Cottle said. “I thought the team showed a lot of heart and determination to gut out some tough games.”
