Defending lacrosse champs looks to clinch playoff spot
The New York Lizards, reigning 2015 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) champions, have their final home game of the season on Saturday, August 6th at James M. Shuart Stadium at Hofstra University, Hempstead Tpkw., Hempstead. Face-off is at 7 p.m. versus the Ohio Machine.
The current series between the Lizards and the Machine is 7-2, in favor of New York. A win this Saturday would clinch their spot in the 2016 MLL Playoffs. The Lizards are original members of the MLL and are three-time champions; 2001, 2003 and 2015
The Lizards encourage fans to come early to partake in a pre-game fanzone featuring merchandise tents, a “fastest shot” competition game, a beer garden and food truck, and other tables set up by the sponsors.
The team suggests that fans wear green attire as part of an effort to support the Lizards in what they call a “Green Out.”
