1974 Offseason
Manhattan, New York

NEW FACES AROUND THE MLA
The Major Lacrosse Association would add 3 new teams to the league. Teams from Brooklyn, Ottawa, and Winnipeg. This expansion set will grow the league to 11 teams.

The league will return to its 3 division format with the Central, East, and West divisions. The East will consist of: Boston, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Ottawa. The Central will consist of: Chicago, Cleveland, Toronto, and Louisville. Lastly, The West will consist of only Colorado, Omaha, and Winnipeg.

Additionally to the restructure of divisions, the league will expand from a 4 team playoff to a 6 team playoff. Each division winner will clinch a playoff spot, with the top 2 teams recieving first round byes.

LOUISVILLE SITUATION GETTING SHAKY
Trent Duff and his lacrosse team have been in hot water recently. With their stadium deteriorating, lack of success, and team chemistry has made their fanbase less interested. Trent is interested in relocating the team for greener pastures. He has looked into 4 different cities for relocation.

Milwaukee, WI
Milwaukee has been on the league's radar for some time. This would add another team in the Great Lakes region, as well as give Chicago a close rival. The plan will call to play at City Park which can hold 5,000 and would have to go under renovations to host a lacrosse team.

Columbus, OH
Similarly to Milwaukee, Columbus has been on the league's radar for a long time. Columbus has a couple decent venues that could be used in the meantime while a long-term venue is constructed. Overall, the city would welcome a team but, there are other owners who would like to get their grasp on Columbus first.

St. Louis, MO
St. Louis is an interesting city on this list for sure. The Otters did not work out on the pro level, but that was due to their lack of success on the field. Municipal Stadium is a fine, albeit aging venue but the stadium can certainly service a te

It is the 1974 Championship. A battle between the Falcons from Toronto and Manhattan. The number one seeded Toronto came from a 10 goal blowout win over Colorado and Manhattan barely beat Boston in a shootout of a game.

Q1
MAN: Goal scored by Attackman Alec Pryor
1-0 (MAN)

Q2
TOR: Goal scored by Attackman Noodin Kenosha
TOR: Goal scored by Midfielder Todd Sweeney
1-2 (TOR)

Q3

1-2 (TOR)

Q4
MAN: Goal scored by Midfielder Niklas Niek
MAN: Goal scored by Attackman Daryl Ry
TOR: Goal scored by Midfielder Newt Johnny
3-3 (TIED)

OT1 (Sudden Death)
Manhattan wins the face off and its Midfielder Mike Smith running it up the field. Smith makes a pass to Alec Pryor as Pryor immediately passes it to a cutting Flynn Lamar... Lamar makes the catch and launches it towards the goal... the ball gets tipped by a Toronto Defenseman... AND THE GOALIE CANNOT MAKE THE SAVE! MANHATTAN WINS IT IN SUDDEN DEATH! 
4-3 (MAN)

Manhattan has done it, the Blue Jays are back to back MLA Champions. The Player of The Game award was given to Flynn Lamar for the game winning goal. Flynn Lamar has now won POTG two years in a row. 

Do you think the MLA will expand this offseason? If so, what cities will get teams?

After an unbelieveable 3 quarters by both teams, Manhattan Midfielder Niklas Niek walks off the game with a goal in the 4th Quarter. This will send Manhattan to their second straight MLA Championship game and they will travel to Toronto to take on the Falcons.

This game marks the second year in a row Manhattan ends Boston's season in the playoffs. This game only fuels the rivalry between the two clubs.

After the game Colorado was left embarrassed after a 10 goal blowout. Colorado's defense was horrendous throughout the entire game and could not piece anything together. On the other side of the field, Toronto was having a field day and wanted to show the rest of the league that they were a legit 1 seed and have a shot at the championship this year. Toronto's Noodin Kenosha managed to get a hat trick, the first time the 26 year old has gotten one.

The Toronto Falcons advance to the MLA Championship and will face off against the Boston Seawolves or Manhattan.

The conclusion of the 1974 season.

Toronto and Manhattan finished in their expected spots with 11-3 records. Toronto being ranked above Manhattan due to sweeping Boston which Manhattan did not accomplish. Boston also finished at their expected 8-9 win range, a solid team this season. The Colorado Jackals were an absolute wildcard here with a 7-7 record. The Jackals beat the Roadrunners in the last game of the year which sent the Jackals to the playoffs, if Omaha wins it, Omaha makes it. As previously stated, Omaha was close to a playoff berth, a 5-6 loss eliminated them from the playoff race. The Chicago Cardinals with a 6-8 record is a surprise, it isn't due to the lack of play from Wildgoose but rather the shock of losing Wildgoose early on in the season that really did the damage. The Cleveland Thunderbirds with a 4-10 record was certainly a surprise, especially being 8-6 the previous year. Cleveland can certainly be good, they just need a big name on their team. Louisville needs to change something soon. Louisville's attendance is dwindling which could leave their team in jeopardy.

Playoffs
Manhattan will be hosting the Boston Seawolves as a rematch of the 1973 MLA Championship where the Seawolves got shutout 5-0. Meanwhile Toronto will play host to the Colorado Jackals in their first playoff appearance. The Falcons think they will have an easy win but the Jackals play with some grit. 

1. Toronto Falcons hosting 4. Colorado Jackals
2. Manhattan hosting 3. Boston Seawolves

1974 Midseason
Toronto and Manhattan both started with an electric start with Toronto having the number one spot due to Toronto beating Manhattan by a score of 9-8. Toronto's only loss came from 4-5 loss in Denver with a very rowdy Jackals crowd. Before the midseason point Manhattan gave Cleveland and Omaha both a 12 goal beatdown. Boston sees themselves with a 4-3 record with an opportunity to take the higher up in the standings, Boston's defense keeps them out of games but their young offense is what keeps them in games. Cleveland and Colorado coming in at 3-4 is no surprise, Cleveland has an older team like Toronto, but unlike Toronto, Cleveland cannot win games with their old team. Meanwhile, Colorado has three very young talented Attackmen that need to figure it out. Louisville just cannot find an answer at this point, their poor play on the field is causing their attendance to drop. Louisville could be the next team to drop. Compared to Louisville, Omaha really isn't that bad. Omaha's record doesn't show the fight and grit they put up throughout the first half of the season, they just need another piece to really seal their team. Lastly, Chicago in last place is weird, it shocked the nation. In Chicago's 6-3 win over Boston, star Attackman Chase Wildgoose tore his ACL and was ruled out for the rest of the season. This led to four losses out of their last five. Chicago is hoping Attackman Nicolas St Jean can step in and fill Wildgoose's shoes.
