Tsouris Helps Cannons Beat Denver
All-Ivy, All-New England Pick Has 2 GBs in Win
BOSTON, Mass. – Saturday in the home of his collegiate archrival Nick Tsouris added to Yale's history of players competing in Major League Lacrosse. Tsouris, drafted by Boston's franchise on June 6 hours after playing in the Warrior Lacrosse Challenge at Yale Bowl, was in a Cannons' uniform during a 17-12 win over Denver at Harvard Stadium.
Tsouris, a defensive midfielder, had two ground balls as Boston broke open a 12-12 game in the fourth quarter to improve its record to 3-2.
Boston head coach Bill Daye is excited about the Bulldog joining his team.
"We're looking to make the defensive midfield position as athletic as possible," said Daye, before Saturday's game in an insidelacrosse.com article. "Tsouris is a great athlete, he has tremendous speed and can play one-on-one with a short stick vs. a lot of midies in this league, which is extremely important."
Tsouris was the ninth Bulldog selected in the MLL Draft since 2002. A second-team All-Ivy and All-New England pick this spring, Tsouris helped the Elis go 10-4 and earn a share of the Ivy championship.
Boston next plays at Chicago on Saturday.
