Welcome to Throwback Thursday! This week we’re showing off a great full game video from 1989 featuring Cortland State (NCAA D3) and Syracuse, the defending NCAA D1 champions! Back in the 70s, 80s, and even 90s, it was relatively common for D1 teams to play D3 teams, and even club teams, as the number of lacrosse playing colleges was much smaller.

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! In honor of the FIL World Championships kicking off on July 10th in Denver, CO we dug up a little video from the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England, featuring the USA and Canada. Both teams read like a who’s who of lacrosse, and the goals scored were insane. There’s just no other way to score on defenses and goalies that good!

The year was 1985, and the Philadelphia Spectrum was playing host to the IBLA Exhibition Series between the US and Canada. This series pitted the best US box players against the best that Canada had to offer and the guys on both rosters served as a who’s who of lacrosse in the mid 80s. This event was also called the North American Cup, and was a very cool concept.

As Captain of the Men’s Lacrosse Team at Oxford I receive emails nearly every week from people who have at some point been involved in the Club. Recently I was contacted by Peter Higgins, who had been the Club Treasurer from 1952-1953, and I asked to meet him in person to talk about the game then and his experiences with lacrosse.

“All-In!”…a NYC-LAX State of Mind.

That was the direct question from the lady on the subway platform of the 4, 5 & 6 trains in Manhattan with my pair of STX Goalmaster sticks resting on my equipment bag. It was 1989. There were only tokens, no MetroCards. Brooklyn wasn’t a “brand”. The Yankees were not known as winners. The Bronx still had a 212 area-code and buying a cup of coffee could get you a fat lip, instead of free Wi-Fi.
