Bayhawks can't stop Boyle in 16-13 loss to Cannons

Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner (Severn) made 16 saves against his former team, but the Bayhawks couldn't contain Boston attackman Ryan Boyle (Gilman) in a 16-13 Major League Lacrosse loss to the Cannons on Saturday at Harvard Stadium in Cambridge, Mass.

Boyle, a five-time All-Star, scored twice and added six assists.

Attackman John Grant Jr. had four goals and two assists in the loss for the Bayhawks (9-3), who finished 2-2 on its road trip.

Midfielder Michael Kimmel (Johns Hopkins, Loyola High) added two goals and two assists for Chesapeake, which has already clinched a playoff spot.

Boston midfielder Paul Rabil (Johns Hopkins) had two goals and two assists as Boston (7-5) improved its chances of reaching the playoffs.

NATIONAL LACROSSE LEAGUE NOTE: Acquiescing to his demand that he be dealt to a team closer to his Baltimore home, the Edmonton Rush of the indoor league sent Rabil to the Rochester Knighthawks for Jarrett Davis. Rabil was traded to the Rush during the 2012 season by the Everett, Wash.-based Washington Stealth, which drafted him second overall in 2008. But Rabil refused to play for Edmonton and stated his desire to be with an Eastern team. In four seasons in the NLL, Rabil has 44 goals, 79 assists and 324 loose balls in 52 games. The 26-year-old Elkton native helped lead the Stealth to the 2010 league title and is one of three players to have won crowns in the NLL, MLL, the Federation of International Lacrosse world championships and NCAA Division I.
