An in-depth look at the 2019 inaugural season through key moments, plays and highlights.
Unlike typical playoff formats, fans didn’t have to wait until the Championship game to see the Top 2 teams in the league battle with playoff intensity. Whipsnakes and Chaos rounded out the first round to decide who would go straight to Philadelphia for the Championship and who would meet Redwoods in New York for the semifinals.
In the 30th and final game of the Premier Lacrosse League’s inaugural regular season, Archers looked to clinch a playoff berth with a win over Whipsnakes. Following an Atlas victory the night before and a dominating Redwoods performance earlier in the day, Archers would need a victory to be in the race for The Crown. Across from them, Whipsnakes had clinched a Top 2 playoff spot and were looking to continue to build momentum from their Week 9 17-4 victory over Redwoods and head into playoffs firing on all cylinders.
