Philadelphia makes it two MLL titles in a row with 16 - 13 victory over the LA Riptide on Sunday in Rochester:

Good game but I never saw an attendance statistic...sure seemed that there were plenty of good seats still available.

I was wondering the exact same thing. So I looked it up -- but it was hard to find. According to pointstreak, there were about 5,300 in attendence.

Anyone know how much tickets were for this game? I would have thought that there would have been 5000 youth and high school players from Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse alone in attendence for this game, then add parents and other lax fans, should have pushed it to 10,000.

They reported over 7600 for the Rochester/LA semi. Guess lots of local fans stayed home on Sunday when the Rattlers didn't make the finals.

kyle sweeney turning a savage buddy pass into a goal was one of the sweeter plays i saw.

LA had a strong Florida Lacrosse League connection with Chazz Woodson (Miami Makos) and Mickey Jarboe (Hogtowne Lacrosse Club) both contributing heavily.

Turned out to be a good game, but there more moments when I wanted to stick a fork in my eye then there were interesting parts.

They have to enforce the rule against High hits, or someone is going to get SERIOUSLY injured.

Anyone see Mike Allan (UCSB coach). He was the only person wearing that hideous orange hat on the sidelines for LA. I guess you have to wear something noticeable so you can pick yourself out on ESPN.

Those attendance numbers are most likely...tickets distributed. I kind of believe the Roch/LA figures but the championship game has to be inflated. I'd guess 2-3K showed up Sunday.
