The lacrosse world championships traveled down under to Perth, Australia in 1990 but playing in the Southern Hemisphere didn’t do much to change the pecking order for national teams.

Earlier this week we put up a video from 2010, featuring a Japan Hidden Ball Trick. The announcers called it the first successful hidden ball trick, but we knew that couldn’t be true. Thanks to Kentaro Shimizu, we now KNOW that the statement was false, because we’ve got video evidence from 2006!
If you believe the announcers on the video, this is the first time the hidden ball trick has ever been successfully pulled off at the World Championships. I can’t imagine that is actually true, as Canada has been playing in that thing forever, but that’s not the point.
Inside you can find a GREAT video on the 2013 FIL World Cup, which took place in Oshawa, Ontario.

The Iroquois Lacrosse program has appealed the FIL’s decision to drop the Iroquois Nationals from the top (Blue) division at the 2014 World Games in Denver for a second time. The original appeal was voted down by the Board of Directors, and they cited “following by-laws” as their rationale.
