BOSTON (CBS) – Make the Cannons the latest Boston team to carry home some major hardware.

The Boston Cannons won their first ever Major League Lacrosse title on Sunday, beating the Hamilton Nationals 10-9.

“I’m very proud of this groups,” said Cannons head coach Bill Daye. “All season they worked hard and bought into our plan. 11 wins in 2011 and we’re MLL champs!”
