Note: Adrenaline, an LXM sponsor, is an LAS advertising partner. Faceoff for the 8th game of the LXM|ATS is set for 6:15pm on Saturday, December 7th. Unfortunately Maverik United’s opportunity to end Team STX’s winning streak in Tucson was postponed until this weekend due to unprecedented weather conditions and cancellation of the game for player safety. We’re talking monsoon level rains and a pool of water in place of a field. In Vegas, MavU must come out of the gates…

I know that many of you POCO (post-collegiate) guys have been chomping at the bit to read an actual rule book meant for adults (sarcasm intended). Well, US Lacrosse released an “adult” rule book including modified NCAA rules, along with a few other changes that make it more relaxed.

The LXM PRO tour is on its latest stop and this weekend they are calling Dallas, TX home. Last week, Maverik United was up a cool 16-10 at the half, but Team STX put a stop to the bleeding with an 8 goal run. It came down to the wire, but Maverik could not pack another one in and Team STX held the shutout in the second half. The 8 unanswered goals were just enough to squeak past Mav U….

End Caps time, here we go. No Shave Novembeard is here! For the first time in my life I think my face has accumulated enough peach fuzz to shamefully attempt to grow facial hair, and not shave at all this month. Stay tuned for my pathetic, hairless updates.
Team STX goalie, Matt Russell, takes a shot to the face. Following the ricochet, Maverik United crease attackman, Erik Krum, makes a diving attempt to recover the loose ball. The ref said the ball was in the crease, Krum thought it was out. One way or the other, Maxx Davis and Andrew Casimir didn’t care, don’t mess with their goalie!
