s UConn Men's Lacrosse: UConn to Take Part in Inaugural "Bean Shot Tournament"

BOSTON, MA - The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, and Muscle Milk have teamed up to debut a new college lacrosse tradition in New England. Lacrosse programs from Northeastern, Boston University, The University of New Hampshire and The University of Connecticut will face off in the inaugural Muscle Milk “Bean Shot Lacrosse Tournament” on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at Harvard Stadium.
The one-day tournament will consist of two semi-final matches and one championship game to decide who has the best club team in New England. The semifinal matches will start at 2 p.m. on the New Stadium Turf Field and the Championship match will start at 5 p.m.

“When I interviewed for the University of Connecticut's Head Lacrosse coaching position I made it very clear to the search committee that I wanted to take the UConn Lacrosse program to another level,” said UConn Head Coach Paul Scordato. “When I was approached and was asked that UConn be a part of the first ever "Bean Shot Tournament" I immediately jumped on the opportunity. Participating in such a great event will add exposure not only to The University of Connecticut but to MCLA lacrosse in general.”

Admission to the “Bean Shot” is free and open to the public and will take place prior to the Cannons vs. Long Island Lizards game. Tickets to the Cannons match-up directly following the “Bean Shot” will be available at a discounted rate for students and alumni. Discounted tickets are $13 for access to the stands (normally $16 face value). Cannons vs. Lizards tickets must be purchased over the phone by calling 617-746-9933 ext: 2613.
The Cannons return to play after winning their first MLL Championship against the Hamilton Nationals last summer. The team looks to continue their reign atop the league as they defend their home turf against long-time rival Lizards who will be making their only trip to Boston.
