As a goalie, there is nothing worse than a crank shot from 5 yards away… the second least favorite shot for most keepers has to be the long pole bomb. You never know where it’s going, the angles are different, and half the time the poles don’t even know where the ball is going. It makes for exciting lacrosse, and can be a momentum changing play.

College Lacrosse season is so far upon us it’s not even funny. Plenty of good games on TV each weekend, and even more action online. If you missed something, this is how you get caught up visually!
While some teams put their players in a couple different helmet models (Duke uses Brine, old Warrior, and new Warrior helmets) that all look the same, the Loyola Hounds take a different approach. Every wears the exact same helmet, but when it comes to gloves… forget about it. Wear whatever you want!
Does this remind you of anything? Have we seen this before? We sure have, but it’s ALWAYS welcome. Long range long pole goal. Simply classic. What was that? 60 yards? Sure thing, no problem. Love the accuracy and straight up gumption from Yale’s Jimmy Craft.
Both Syracuse and St. John’s entered the game in Kennesaw, GA with a 2-2 record, but Cuse got above .500 with the 14-8 win in front of more than 5,500 fans, many of them local. Clearly the chance to see top quality D1 lacrosse was enough to draw out the growing Georgia lacrosse community. Photos, GIF, video, and recap!
Craig Chase took in Loyola’s dismantling of Duke from Ridley Athletic Complex and sent over these fantastic game photos! We’ve got a couple great shots, and a GIF of a big and violent hit.
Fairfield opened up a 1 goal lead after 1 quarter, and a 2 goal lead going into the half, but Yale just would not go quietly into that good night. Both teams put up 4 goals in the third, and Yale clamped down in the fourth to blank Fairfield, while scoring two goals of their own, to tie it up at 11. OT came and Stags’ senior Eric Warden launched a bomb from about 13 yards to win it for Fairfield.
They shot well, came in with a great game plan, and executed to perfection. It’s still early in March, but Loyola is clearly a team on a mission this year. I expect them to drop another game or two and possibly have some off days, but if they are gelling at the end of the year like this, the Hounds are as dangerous as anyone in the country.
UVA was up 5-2 on Cornell in the second quarter and looking to improve to 7-0. Cornell said not so fast, scored 9 straight goals, and took a commanding 11-5 lead. Cornell ended up winning the game 12-9 as UVA tried to claw their way back in, but to no avail.
Please join us in welcoming Larken Kemp to the LAS family! Larken will be writing about Brown University Lacrosse this year with an insider’s perspective… he’s on the team! Alex Jones started the tradition, and now Larken Kemp is picking it up. Welcome to another Spring of Brown State Blogging!
Earlier this we trickled out the quick release videos from teams like UVM, Albany’s Miles Thompson, Delaware, Johns Hopkins, Pace, and others. There was also a great Loyola GIF. Now we get to the rest of this week’s visual entertainment! There is more than enough to go around.
If there is good college lacrosse video out there, the chances are that we will find it, drop it in one convenient post for your viewing pleasure, and ring in the weekend with style! Welcome to the college lacrosse video explosion! It’s your one stop shop for visual excellence on a lacrosse field.
The first Tewaaraton Watch List has been announced for 2014 by the Tewaaraton Foundation. The event was held at the Union Club in New York City last night, and members from across the lacrosse community attended the event. Long early-season lists were released, but these lists are far from final, as additional players will be named on March 25th, and April 10th.
Providence College made the short trip up Route 95 to visit Boston University last night, and the host Terriers dropped a 10-7 decision to the visiting Friars. Originally, the game had been scheduled to be played in Providence, but weather forced a change to Boston, and the game was played at Nickerson Field, where the Boston Cannons used to play games.
We’ve seen some pretty impressive long-range goals scored in college lacrosse, but I don’t know that we’ve ever seen anything quite like this! Failed clears and weird bounces can produce typical 15 yard plus scores, but very rarely do you see an absolute bomb from well outside the restraining box… it’s even more rare to see on of those go in!
