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. Canada and the US obviously matched up for a great game and the video picks up the play with the US up 5-2 early in the second quarter.

The Iroquois are 2-1 agains the US in Bowhunter Cup games, and 3-0 against the US at the WILC. The Iroquois won last year’s Bowhunter Cup 12-10. The Nationals are sending out a relatively seasoned group of players, and they will have plenty of offensive fire power. The US is sending out a younger team, with good box pedigrees.
Craig Chase shot some great photos at the USA – Loyola scrimmage last weekend in Alexandria, VA, but some of them are even better in sets! A couple of great images from a big hit makes for a great GIF, and in this case, the hit is VERY clean, and from what we can tell, completely legal.
Do you have any guesses as to who is going to make the next cut for Team USA, and who will represent the red, white, and blue in Denver in 2014? We’ve heard some rumblings and rumors, but we want to hear YOUR opinion first!
Team USA Blue took on Loyola at 2pm on Saturday as part of the Play for Parkinson’s event in Alexandria, VA. Loyola also scrimmaged against Georgetown, and we have photos from that fall game as well. Photo gallery by Craig Chase!
Chris Rosenthall went down to Alexandria, VA after my weekend box game to check out the Team USA fall scrimmages at the Play for Parkinson’s event, and got to catch up with Kevin Cassese, a Team USA assistant, and Kyle Hartzell, a Team USA hopeful! Check out what the insiders had to say about the recent try out scrimmages!
Welcome back to Monday Night Memories! Randy Fraser Remembered the Rough Stuff, and Brian Cost Got Rocked in our first two stellar editions of this series. This time around we’ve got a story from Anthony Kelly. John Grant Junior stole his helmet! It’s 2007, the US is playing Canada in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships, and Anthony Kelly is about to learn a valuable lesson.
On October 5th, Team USA hopefuls will once again face a grueling day of lacrosse to decide who makes the team, and who gets cut. The 52 man roster has been split into 26 man “White” and “Blue” teams, and before taking on each other in an inter-squad scrimmage, the White squad will take on Loyola, while the Blue squad will face Towson. The games will be played as part of the Play for Parkinson’s Showcase on October 5th in Alexandria, VA.
You might not be one of the best 95 lacrosse players in the US (I’m certainly not), but Greg Gurenlian is, and he’s sharing an in-depth perspective on the US National Team tryouts, held in Late August.
Team USA tryouts were last weekend, and after the long few days of competition, it seems that some of the guys got together to kick back and relax…at a Canadian’s place.
If this were the NFL, every man on the US training roster would be breathing a sigh of relief, knowing they had made the final cut. Thankfully, this isn’t football, and that means we still have a lot more cutting to do.

Below, I discuss some of the big cuts and story lines….
US Lacrosse announced today the 52-man roster for the US Men’s National team that will compete in the World Championships next summer in Denver. Originally slated to have 46 players, this first cut keeps 10 attackmen, 13 midfielders, 14 long poles, 7 short-stick defensive midfielders, 4 goalies, and 4 face-off men. The final 23-man roster will be announced after various fall and winter events.
Picking the US Men’s National team is a difficult task, and one that I don’t pretend to have all the answers to. Remember, this isn’t about building an All-Star “Team” – this is about putting together a TEAM. Team USA. So without further ado, my prediction for the USAMLAX roster.
This week, our Tweet of the Week comes from lacrosse legend Mark Millon. He posed an interesting question on Twitter which I then relayed to @LaxAllStars, but I think that it’s a great question that deserves more discussion.
US Lacrosse has announced the 98 man list of players that will try out for the 2014 US Men’s Team on Labor Day Weekend at Goucher College in Baltimore. Below you will find the list, which certainly contains many of the biggest names in the game, but we’re curious to know if YOU think anyone obvious was left off?
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.

This is the ninth international tournament, and the ninth finals appearance the US women have made.

Since it’s the first televised lacrosse event of the year, the Loyola – USA game is getting way more play than a scrimmage deserves, but if anything, that just shows how starved people are for collegiate field lacrosse.
