You Can Play The Game Anywhere

0 - Published April 9, 2014 by in Grow The Game

Never let someone tell you that playing lacrosse is impossible. It IS possible, no matter what obstacles stand in your way. If you have a physical disability, you can play. If you don’t have a great stick, you can play. Heck, you don’t even need a real field to play the game!

Hot Pot: The Three-Way Rivalry

0 - Published April 9, 2014 by in College, Featured, NCAA

The vast majority of rivalries involved two sides, but every once in a while, you find a three-way rivalry that really works. It’s rare, but special, and I’m happy to say that I played a small part in a great one. The Little Three consists of Amherst College, Wesleyan University, and Williams College. While all three of these schools play in the NESCAC, the three-way rivalry is alive and well at each institution.

The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a short Spring season away, and national teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising! We have also learned that lacrosse is headed to the World Games in 2017!

Is This D1 Lacrosse Poll Serious?

0 - Published April 8, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Ranking D1 lacrosse teams is tough. Last week we had an easy criticism to make and could say Cornell should be #1, by virtue of them being undefeated. Then they lost to Harvard. Now it’s fair to give that coveted (but somewhat meaningless) #1 spot to Loyola free and clear. After that, the rankings get a little more confusing… let’s see if they’re serious or not!

That’s right, it’s Rivalry Week on LAS! We’re getting all jazzed up for the Hopkins – Maryland game, and we’re going to be taking in the OSU – Michigan game LIVE. But before we get into all that (keep your eyes peeled for rivalry posts all week), we’re going to run down the list of some top notch college lacrosse rivalries!

Cornell is no longer the sole undefeated team in D1 after they dropped a decision to Harvard, 14-9, on their home field in Ithaca, NY. Cornell took leads of 1-0, 4-1, and 6-4, but Harvard fought back and tied it up each time. Harvard took the lead for the first time early in the third quarter to go up 7-6, and never looked back from there.

CUFLA Champions: Guelph Documentary

0 - Published April 7, 2014 by in College

The Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association (CUFLA) is a really interesting collegiate lacrosse league! It’s not like NCAA lacrosse, in that is is club, but is also the best college field ball being played North of the Border. Jack Hallett, a student at Guelph, followed around the team for the year, and documented the entire season. Now he has put together a 40 minute documentary, and it’s stellar!

Loyola travelled to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday, and the Hounds emerged with a hard tough 7-6 Patriot League win, but it took two overtime periods to decide the winner. Both keepers saw some serious heat, and we’re rewarding them in GIF format for their excellent efforts.

I’m not going to lie, I am VERY excited for tonight’s Albany vs. Johns Hopkins game on ESPNU (7pm ET). In my rabid fandom I searched for videos of the Thompsons, and while I came across a number of well known classics, I also found a hidden gem that has somehow slipped through the cracks. How does this video of Lyle Thompson (playing for Lafayette HS) only have 771 views?

Superb High School Lacrosse Video

0 - Published April 3, 2014 by in High School

A three minute highlight tape is better than nothing. Everyone gets to see some big goals and their attention span is not tested to any serious degree. When an 11:00 minute plus highlight comes out, it had better be good, and it had better feature two very good teams.

The D3 Report: More Upsets? More Upsets!

- Published April 3, 2014 by in College, NCAA

Welcome back to another crazy installment of the D3 Report! This season has been chock full of upsets, surprise teams, and quick Top 20 risers. More established programs are losing games to teams they would have beaten by 10 or more only a few years ago. Parity? Do we know that word? By now, we should!

Throwback Thursday: USA Vs Canada Box Lacrosse 1985

0 - Published April 3, 2014 by in Box, Featured, International

The year was 1985, and the Philadelphia Spectrum was playing host to the IBLA Exhibition Series between the US and Canada. This series pitted the best US box players against the best that Canada had to offer and the guys on both rosters served as a who’s who of lacrosse in the mid 80s. This event was also called the North American Cup, and was a very cool concept.
