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.
As we follow the New Jersey Riot 2016 team, and update you on their first hand experiences at camps, tournaments, and other events in the club lacrosse scene, we will also introduce you to some of their players via interviews. We want to know how potential college players think nowadays, and there is no better way to get informed than by talking to the players of today!
This week, we’re looking at a post that was originally posted back in June, but has seen a few new responses in the past few days. The question is about breaking in hard mesh. Have any tips for our poster?
After many hours of exporting, and then uploading, and then processing, the 43 minute 43 second multiple string traditional tutorial is up and live. It’s in-depth, and there are helpful tips smattered throughout.
The MLL returns to regular season action tonight with a high-stakes matchup between the 2011 and 2012 champs, the Boston Cannons and the Chesapeake Bayhawks. It will air live on CBS Sports Network.
Stylin Strings sent over an LAS-themed mini stick, complete with a pita pocket, and I love that mini sticks are getting the traditional love.
This week, our Tweet of the Week comes from Brodie Merrill, in response to Gary Gait. To be honest, Gait’s tweet was TOTW worthy itself, but Brodie’s just made it even better.
Bend, Oregon is the home of the Bigfoot Summer Bender Men’s Lacrosse Tournament. 2013 was the 3rd year of the tournament’s existence. In each of the previous years, the Bender has seen exponential growth in not only participants in the tournament, but the talent as well.
What new skills competitions would you want to see?
Colton Raichl was out in Bend, Oregon for the Summer Bender, and will have a tourney recap and full highlight video up tomorrow. For now, enjoy this excellent Behind The Back effort, coming at you from Bend, OR.
In today’s MLL, the culture of consistency has become more vital to an organization’s success than ever before. It’s no longer about assembling the best group of all-star caliber players and throwing them out on the field, it’s about finding personnel that fit a system and are both willing, and able, to stay local, and together, as much as possible.
Joe Walters scored a behind the back goal off a behind the back feed from Jordan MacIntosh. It’s an All-Star highlight, and exactly what one would expect from some of the world’s best.
Through CityLax, the volunteer coaches and players of NYC have created something truly special in Rooftop Lacrosse. They have given birth to a very real thing, that will live on for years. Rooftop was started on a whim, when an opportunity presented itself, and it has grown into something much bigger. What will you give birth to this Summer?
