Below we’ve got video from both 2013 Vail Shootout semifinal games as well as the finals. This is one of the best Summer tourneys each year, has been running for decades, and turns a ski town into a lacrosse town for two weeks every year.
With performance enhancing drugs running rampant in so many sports that we KNOW about, we have to ask ourselves, are PEDs here to stay? Performance enhancing drugs are ever evolving, changing, and improving.
In this week’s episode of WLA Weekly, we interview Curtis Dickson of the Maple Ride Burrards. We also look at last week’s games, the standings, and a look into what will be happening next week in the WLA!
Earlier today, we showed you a ton of really solid summer lacrosse highlights from recruiting events, camps, and tournaments. Here’s another Summer game, featuring 3D New England and Sweet Lax 2017 players, and it was a highly enjoyable game to take in, especially for Elite Summer Club ball.
Starting on Friday, July 19th, Masters box lacrosse teams from Canada descended on the Kahnawà:ke Sports Complex for the Canadian Masters Lacrosse Invitational. KTV spoke with organizer, Al “Arbour” Diabo about bringing the tourney to Kahnawà:ke.
If you’re interested in checking out a ton of high quality, recruitable talent today, look no further than The Lacrosse Network, as they are broadcasting a ton of games from the Stowe Lax Fest, put on by Bitter Lacrosse, in Stowe, VT. Honestly, I don’t think HS club lacrosse has ever been covered like this before. It is truly next level stuff!
A few weeks ago I spotted this Chase Bank commercial which features the lacrosse in a big way. Check it out here!
On my trip to the Tahoe Lacrosse Tournament, I just had to snap a picture featuring Southland Lax. Check it out in this week’s POTW!
Our man Fritts is here for your Monday night dosage of music!
If you saw a goalie wearing shin guards and flapping shoulder pads, you might not think of the kid as a baller, but if his name is Gareth Haigh, you’d be wrong! Leading Edge 2018′s goalie may rock shin guards and shoulder pads, but his stick skills can NOT be assailed in any way, shape, or form!
Frederick Douglass Academy, or FDA as their more popularly known, won their first city title in NYC’s “B” Bowl Division this year, and I was there to take it all in live. They played Curtis, a relatively established program from Staten Island, and pulled out a tight victory. It was a watershed moment for Harlem Lacrosse, and hearing from the players themselves only reinforced this fact. Next year, FDA moves up to “A” Division… can they make it two in…
In Sean Christman’s past work for LAS, he has written about Division 3 NCAA lacrosse and the MLL. However, this piece is entirely different. When looking through the Lehigh senior night program, Sean saw something that caught his eye. Senior midfielder Kyle Stiefel was trying out for the Israeli national team.
The US Women’s Lacrosse Team has claimed it seventh world title with a 19-5 win over Canada in the finals of the tournament, which has held in Oshawa, Ontario. The US was up 14-2 at the half and cruised to victory in the second, still outscoring their opponents 5-3. This is the ninth international tournament, and the ninth finals appearance the US women have made.
Joseph Timmons has been involved with the Brooklyn Crescents, a youth lacrosse club in New York City, for five years, and in that time, he has seen the scene change in the five boroughs. His piece below details the humble beginnings of the Crescents, and let’s you get to know this urban lacrosse program a little better.
Are these 15 year old Canadian box lacrosse players better than you? I’m pretty sure they are better than me! This is the Coquitlam Adanacs (British Columbia) Midget A1 team, which currently sits at 19-0-1, with 158 goals for, and 56 goals against.
Editor’s Note: With summer well underway, we wanted to up your weekly dosage of music, so we decided to double our music offering to you. Each Monday, Michael Allen will take the morning detail, and Nate Fritts will continue to knock out the night hours. Everybody wins! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ This week’s morning Music Monday (how’s that for alliteration?) features some great songs that I unintentionally discovered in the last week. It shouldn’t matter how we come across music, just so long…
The last time the Chesapeake Bayhawks faced off against the Boston Cannons, the Cannons were 0-3, with the worst season start in franchise history. That game ended in with an overtime victory for the Cannons at Harvard stadium, and would lead to a monumental turn around seeing Boston winning 4 of the next 6 games, putting them back in playoff contention.
Three games on Saturday in Major League Lacrosse, and all come with big implications for the playoff picture. Can Charlotte, Rochester, or New York make a move? Will Denver keep winning? Can Ohio double their win total for the year?
Much ado was made by many in the lacrosse world concerning the return of Casey Powell to Major League Lacrosse last night, and for good reason. The 37 year old superstar has been a force in pro lacrosse (both indoor and outdoor) for years, and Casey showed no signs of slowing down in his 2013 MLL debut, and return to the league, after a brief retirement.
Over on Adrenaline’s website, it has been announced that both Rhamel and Shamel Bratton will be switching teams this weekend. Instead of donning the blue and white of Team STX, they will now be wearing the neon green and grey of Maverik United. To offset this loss of personnel, Davey Emala is being brought in by the boys in blue.
