Minutemen In Major League Lacrosse (6.16)

Three former University of Massachusetts men's lacrosse standouts were active during the seventh week of the Major League Lacrosse season as Jim Connolly (2006-07, '09), Kevin Leveille (2000-03) and Will Manny (2010-13) combined to earn four points for the Ohio Machine, Rochester Rattlers and Boston Cannons, respectively. Check out how each did individually below:

Connolly did not record statistics but rotated into the lineup for Ohio's attack as the Machine earned a comeback win over Leveille's Rattlers, 18-13 on Saturday. The appearance marked Connolly's second of the year for Ohio and first since a win at Charlotte on April 26 as the squad is 2-0 with Connolly in the lineup.

Leveille scored one goal as Rochester battled with Ohio in a 18-13 loss to the Machine. Leveille scored career tally No. 272, adding to his league record, to make it 5-2 in favor of Rochester, but a seven goal third quarter for Ohio erased the Rattlers lead and led the Machine to victory.

Manny assisted on three Boston goals, but the Cannons suffered a 16-15 loss on the road at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial to the Chesapeake Bayhawks on Saturday. Manny helped get the offense rolling with an assist on Boston's first goal before he added helpers to tie the game at 7-7 and 13-13; however, Chesapeake scored three of the final four goals to earn the win.
