Very obscure Box Lacrosse entry that lasted for only one season in the centrally-owned Major Indoor Lacrosse League. The Charlotte Cobras were added to the league as an expansion franchise in 1996, but they were badly overmatched. The Cobras lost all 10 of their games and were outscored 186-85 for the season, an average deficit of more than 10 goals per game.
In August 1996 the league decided to shut down the Cobras rather than bring them back for a second season.
Would like to find a logo, pocket schedule or other scrap of memorabilia for this team,
but not holding out much hope. Thanks to SkedCentral.com for sending over this rare Cobras pocket schedule (above right).
