It’s that wonderful time of the year where lacrosse video REALLY means something! The games are all one and done, and in each division, there can be only champ. Who’s bringing home the hardware? We shall know quite soon!

I really need to figure out what a “speed dodge” actually is. It can’t be as simple as just running by someone, can it?
Since I have not made any clear decisions on what the grand enigma of playoff success must be, I will defer to people with much more experience and success in this matter. It’s good to have friends who are smarter than you! Let’s take a small sampling of what it means to make a successful playoff push, from some of the best minds in the game.
In the end, I can still understand rewarding the “good” teams with more All-Americans. But here is the thrust of my thought process right now: I simply don’t believe that any one team in the Top 20 of D3 is really 11 or 12 All Americans better than someone only a handful of spots behind them.
Reliving the Notre Dame Albany NCAA D1 lacrosse quarterfinal game is going to be a Summer past time for many people, and this is how they can do it. Simply amazing.
I took in the New York City Public School Athletic League (PSAL) Championship games for both the boys and girls, and for both the Bowl Division and the Championship Divisions. It was a great day of lacrosse in the Big Apple!
We get a lot of good photos from our photographer crew, but our Director of Photography, Tommy Gilligan, really pulled out all the stops this weekend with this shot!
Craig Chase departed the confines of Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex after the Hounds got eliminated, and got right back to work. The level of play may not be NCAA D1 anymore, but the photos are still great!
If you didn’t catch Notre Dame’s insane comeback on Saturday to defeat Albany in OT, you need to drop everything, go to ESPN3 right now, and spend two and a half hours watching one of the best NCAA D1 tournament games of all-time. Do you think I’m crazy for saying that? Watch the game, then […]
A decade ago, in 2004, the Navy men’s lacrosse team made an epic run to the Final Four, and then in front of the whole nation, the Midshipmen did the unthinkable, winning their semifinal game, and matching up with Syracuse on Memorial Day.
I got to know Julian Maliszewski at this year’s Ales Hrebesky Memorial, and I asked this dominant face off man why he used a traditional pocket. We got to talking, and I wasn’t shocked to find out that Julian knew a lot about the art of leather and string, so I sent him some questions about his pocket, and face off guys using traditional, and Julian crushed out some awesome answers. He also sent over some photos of the heads and pockets he uses.
Less than a week ago, if you had asked me if we were going to see a new champion in D1 men’s lacrosse in 2014, I would have said “unlikely, at best”. 5 days later and my answer has changed to, “it seems incredibly likely right now, if not down right probable.”
So, you’re moving along on Wednesday, thinking about this weekend’s awesome D1 quarterfinal games, and then all of a sudden, you realize there are quarterfinal games TODAY, and you freak out.
Here is the big reality: Since there can be only one winner, there are going to be a number of other teams licking their wounds after a tough loss. That’s just the ugly truth. What can you do about it?
Both of the top seeds went on the road and lost last weekend in NLL action. Edmonton went to Calgary and dropped a tough 12-11 decision to the Roughnecks. Rochester made the short trip on the Thruway to Buffalo and dropped a 12-8 game to a surging Buffalo Bandits.
