On Sunday, Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced that Atlanta Blaze attackman Randy Staats and Chesapeake Bayhawks defenseman Warrem Jeffrey had each been handed a one-game suspension following an altercation between the two in Saturday night’s game.
The altercation between the two took place early in the second quarter. The scrum quickly turned into a fight with both players appearing to throw punches. Both players were ejected following the scrum. There were multiple other players penalized on both sides following the incident.
Chesapeake went on to win the game by a score of 16-13. The game was interrupted by a pretty lengthy weather delay after the first half.
Before getting ejected, Warren Jeffrey scooped up one ground ball and caused one turnover. Randy Staats tallied 2 points (1G,1A).
Staats, sixth in the league in points, will serve his suspension today as the Atlanta Blaze face the New York Lizards. Jeffrey will be serving his suspension next week on Sunday, July 14th as the Chesapeake Bayhawks face the Dallas Rattlers.
