ESPN2 will broadcast the game live with the professional team of Joe Beninati and Quint Kessenich calling the game.  Joe and Quint have been at the mic for some of the highest profile lacrosse games in the world and the WSYL Championship game enhances that portfolio “The World Series of Youth Lacrosse provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these young athletes to be able to compete on the world’s stage, on live national television, in one of the most famous outdoor stadiums in the country,” said Beninati. "It's amazing to see how quickly the event has grown. This is not just an unbelievable experience for the two finalists, but for all of the teams that are invited to Denver to compete for a World Championship.”
