LOS ANGELES, CA. (June 25, 2019) - The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) announced today an attendance total of 16,701 over three total games this past Saturday and Sunday (June 22-23) at Homewood Field in Baltimore, including a full sell out for the Saturday night game between Whipsnakes LC and Atlas LC.
The triumphant weekend in Baltimore was highlighted by a completely sold out stadium on Saturday night as fans watched the Whipsnakes’ former Maryland stars Matt Rambo and Michael Ehrhardt take down Atlas LC and their contingent of John Hopkins alumni such as Paul Rabil and Ryan Brown. The early Saturday game saw new Redwoods’ attackman Jules Heningburg debut with a bang. After his midweek trade to the team, Heningburg broke the PLL single-game scoring record with 5 goals and 3 assists while leading the Redwoods to victory over the Chrome LC. Sunday’s game between Chaos LC and Archers LC finished with another win for coach Andy Towers’ Chaos team following a standout performance from goalie Blaze Riorden. This weekend’s action was once again a focal point of social conversation as PLL content delivered over 15 million total impressions on all platforms.
The PLL season continues next week (June 28-29) with a trip down south to Atlanta, GA. Georgia State Stadium will host three league games - one on Friday night (June 28) and two during the day on Saturday (June 29). The marquee matchup under lights on Friday night will see Archers LC go up against Atlas LC at 8 PM ET on NBCSN.
