Working in the lacrosse world has its perks and more often than not, we like to spread the love. Last week we received a sick new pair of gloves that aren’t even available for individual purchase yet. Can you guess what they might be?
Columbus and Cleveland definitely host their share of dominant teams such as Dublin-Jerome, Upper Arlington, Rocky River, and University School. Don’t get me wrong though, Northwest Ohio has some top level teams too, like Sylvania Southview or Toledo St. Francis, but they have something better than elite teams, and that is expansion!
The Chesapeake Bayhawks came in to New York City to take on the New York Lizards, and they absolutely dominated the rain-soaked game, which was the first ever pro field lacrosse contest played at the iconic and historic Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.
There’s stories of a man in the lacrosse world. It is said that he can talk to sticks.
In our last edition of Ask A Ref, Gordon Corsetti filled us in on how players can, and can not, exchange sticks on the field of play. This week, he’s covering goalie sticks, how they can be used on offense, and we can draw the line.
It’s a total coincidence, but three of this weekend’s matchups were listed amongst the most interesting games of the year. The one that wasn’t has since become a battle of the top teams in the league, so let’s go ahead and officially declare that one interesting as well. We start off the week with a classic rivalry game in New York City, and a battle to get to (or maintain) a .500 winning percentage; here’s a breakdown of that and everything…
Towards the end of the college season, work picked up to the point that I couldn’t string as much as I’d like to, but now that things are slowing down just a little bit, I’ve found the time to dial just a couple of sticks… here’s a look at some of the heads I’ve been stringing.
This amazing video features the Mississauga Tomahawks playing against the Etobicoke Eclipse in their final season before folding in OLA Jr A lacrosse. John Taveres played for Mississauga, where he took home Rookie of the Year honors in the OLA in 1988.
Editor’s Note: Please welcome Sean Christman to LAS! Sean did a great job of covering D3 this year over on Cac to the Cac, and now he’s looking at some of the potential Top Undrafted MLL Players from this year’s college Seniors! With the collegiate season officially coming to a close, the MLL will be bringing in lots of rookies from the collegiate draft. However, going undrafted doesn’t mean your collegiate career is over (see: Lusby, Eric). Here is a…
The Cannons tried to stay undefeated in Denver, the Hounds sought to ruin Rob Pannell’s homecoming party, Hamilton battled Chesapeake, and the Machine look for their first win of the season against Rochester. What happened?
The LXM PRO swings back into action on Saturday, June 8th in Orange County, California. While the location isn’t a new one (LXM has held numerous events in the OC), the game itself definitely presents a number of new aspects to the LXM, and we’re excited to preview some of these evolutions the Tour will see in 2013.
Congratulations to Claudette Wilmot of Jamaica, the May 2013 Game Grower of the Month.
The 2012-13 Italian Championships have drawn to a conclusion! Saturday the 18th of May, and Sunday the 19th, played host to the finals of the Italian Championship, as well as the FIRST-EVER edition of the Women’s Italian Cup, which was played at the Martelli Stadium in Mantova.
The big news on ESPN, CNN, Fox, Deadspin, and a number of other sources today is the brewing performance enhancing drug scandal in Major Leagues Baseball. What makes me laugh in all this is that people are acting like this is some kind of big surprise… AGAIN.
Wembley Lacrosse Club, located in Perth, Australia, held a memorial day for Liam Davies at their club on Saturday, the 25th May. Liam was a 19 year old Wembley player whose life was taken tragically in January whilst holidaying in Indonesia with some of his teammates.
A couple of Sundays back saw a constant drizzle slowly drench New York City, but that didn’t stop the Public School Athletic League lacrosse championships, which took place at Aviator Sports Complex, in Brooklyn, from going down in a pretty amazing fashion.
As we look back on the 2013 men’s college lacrosse season, one can see why this year was different from the rest. It was the year of the Underdog, and Lance Antoine loves it!
