Did you miss this video of the recent Johns Hopkins alumni game? If you did, it would be a shame, if we didn’t have it here for you to take in! But we do, so don’t fret.
More excellent fall ball highlights out of Vermont? You know it. First we had UVM vs the Hill Academy, then we got UVM vs Bishop’s (Canada), and now we get Vermont vs Holy Cross. I’ll take it any day of the week.
Roll Gate took on the Brooklyn Dodgers in the noon NYC ULAX game thus past Sunday and we got some pretty goals, and a couple of beauty saves. The goalies were “on” in all three games this weekend and were the definite stars of Sunday. A couple of Lafayette alumni also had big offensive days, and these guys notched a couple of sweet men’s league fall ball goals.
The year was 1975. The NLL had just started up and the Philadelphia Wings were the most popular team in this brand new professional sports league. Greats like Jim Wasson, John Grant Senior, and the Lloyd brothers played in the league, the helmets didn’t have face masks and the sticks were all made out of wood. The shorts were also truly short.
Crosse Studios, in-conjunction with game developer, Big Ant, announced Lacrosse 14 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and the PC. Lacrosse 14 will be funded through a month long “all-or-nothing” Kickstarter Campaign. We got in contact with Carlo Sunseri, of Crosse Studios, to get some more info on this project.
The Iroquois are 2-1 agains the US in Bowhunter Cup games, and 3-0 against the US at the WILC. The Iroquois won last year’s Bowhunter Cup 12-10. The Nationals are sending out a relatively seasoned group of players, and they will have plenty of offensive fire power. The US is sending out a younger team, with good box pedigrees.
This week, myself and the rest of the Vandal lacrosse team are headed to Missoula Montana for the first fall ball tournament of the year. Naturally, in honor of getting back on the field, this week’s trick is called the Missoula Movement. As Stick Trick Saturday moves on, the tricks are going to get a little more complicated. As always, break down the trick into different parts, then put it all together. Also keep being patient and have fun!
Lax.com took in the Play for Parkinson’s event down in Alexandria, VA, and gives us a public unveiling of the new Richmond Spiders program in video form. It’s always fun to see a first year team compete with some of the better D1 programs out there.
Another stringing question in the LAS Community Forum! This time, our poster wants to know your opinion on wax mesh. Is it worth it compared to hard mesh?
StylinStrings caught up with three of the Thompson brothers up in Syracuse at the Wooden Stick Expo last month. The guys talk about their wooden sticks, the history of the game, and what it was like to see the documentary, The Medicine Game, unfold before their eyes.
Fed up that the federal shutdown was keeping them off their practice fields, a group of young lacrosse players in Northern Virginia challenged the government in court. And at least for now, they won.
Craig Chase shot some great photos at the USA – Loyola scrimmage last weekend in Alexandria, VA, but some of them are even better in sets! A couple of great images from a big hit makes for a great GIF, and in this case, the hit is VERY clean, and from what we can tell, completely legal.
Last week The Lacrosse Show debuted a new LIVE format with a ton of bells and whistles. It’s a REAL lacrosse show, and it’s something you’re definitely going to want to check out week after week. This week, Connor Wilson and Mark Powers hit up five engrossing lacrosse topics, and then catch up with Kyle Harrison.
Seniors Rob Guida and James Malm, along with Junior Mike Pellegrino, have been named the 2014 captains for the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse program. Hop missed out on the NCAA tournament last year, so the naming of captains definitely has a little extra spark to it this year.
Today’s message is brought to you by Trevor Tierney, and it reminds parents everywhere how to be great spectators and supporters at youth sporting events.
One of the Japanese attendees of last year’s Hawai’i Tournament caught the Wimmer boys “warming up” for an early round game. Paul Rabil, Max Seibald, Brett Queener, and a bunch of other pros are messing around, throwing some tricks, and proving their full belief in the “sun’s out, guns out” mentality.
Do you spend Thursdays looking through photos of traditional pockets that OTHER people have strung? Do you wish that you too could string a mean pocket using only leather and cross lace? Today is YOUR day to learn how to string traditional for yourself!
Johns Hopkins defeated Virginia 9-8 (in overtime) in the 1980 Division 1 Men’s Lacrosse national championship game. The game was played at Cornell University in front of over 10,000 fans. Jeff Harris scored the OT game winner for Hop, and the goal was assisted by Jim Bidne. This was Hopkins’ third straight national title in men’s lacrosse.
Do you have any guesses as to who is going to make the next cut for Team USA, and who will represent the red, white, and blue in Denver in 2014? We’ve heard some rumblings and rumors, but we want to hear YOUR opinion first!
Mike Perrino plays lacrosse at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY, and in his spare time, he has started to edit together highlight videos. Mike took some absolutely unreal shots from the last couple of college seasons and threw them together in the above video. I think every goal in the video is at least a 9 out of 10.
