He will be sharing his experiences in the States all year on LAS, starting with today. So without further ado, here is the beginning of Fred’s American lacrosse adventure!

ULax’s NYC box lacrosse league is going strong throughout the Winter, and we played this past weekend even though the sport court floor we use was just a little wet and slippery. Lots of guys fell over (as in everyone fell at least once), we got the games in, and had some fun. Now you get to see us slip and fall all over the place, because why not?
Week 3 of NYC’s box lacrosse league (run by ULAX) saw a little upset action as previously undefeated LaxAllStars.com lost its first game of the season to the Gotham Goats.
LaxAllStars.com, led by Billy Nguyen, Joe Barile, John Ray, and Justin Otto moved to 2-0 with a tight 11-10 win over Rudy Martinez’ Brooklyn Dodgers squad. Jeff Melnik, the creator of the video, is Brooklyn’s goalie. The Gotham Goats moved to 1-1 with a win over Team America, who drops to 0-2 early in the year.
LaxAllStars.com got back on track with a win during week one of ULax’s outdoor Winter box lacrosse league in Manhattan. The website’s squad took down Team America (although with a name like that, winning made us feel awful) with relative ease, but it was really encouraging to see so many new faces to box lacrosse from the fine fellows in blue. I’d expect this team to improve greatly as the Winter season rolls along.
Roll Gate took on the Brooklyn Dodgers in the noon NYC ULAX game thus past Sunday and we got some pretty goals, and a couple of beauty saves. The goalies were “on” in all three games this weekend and were the definite stars of Sunday. A couple of Lafayette alumni also had big offensive days, and these guys notched a couple of sweet men’s league fall ball goals.
Sunday was cloudy and a little bit misty in New York City, but that didn’t stop the die hard players in ULAX’s fall ball league from going out and giving it their best… or at least the best they could manage on a Sunday morning. We got a couple of dive shot attempts, and an almost goalie goal!
ULAX’s New York City league features a vast array of talent, and players come from all over to make for a truly eclectic group of players. This week we have highlights from two games, and video of Connor taking an epic slash to the knee. Nice!
Week 3 of ULAX’s NYC league is done and said for, and we’ll have highlights from two games later on today. For now, feast your eyes on a huge Slash of Death that yours truly took squarely on the knee this past Sunday. It’s a doozy!
Week 2 of ULAX’s New York City league saw a some blowouts, and some tight games. The game of the weekend was the Gotham Goats vs. the Brooklyn Dodgers, with the Goats coming out on top.
NYC ULAX fall ball is back! The league features great diversity in terms of talent and experience, and it’s not uncommon to see a Wisconsin helmet or local HS player matched up against a D1 alum or current MLL player. The games are fun, and can get a little intense, but everyone keeps a certain moniker in mind during the action: “we all have to work on Monday”.
Bill Schick hits us up with his second lacrosse video and the highlights are excellent. Just a little post-collegiate NYC ULAX lacrosse balling video. Enjoy!
The New York City box lacrosse playoffs and finals went down this past weekend and we have a summary of the games, tons of great photos, and video highlights to show off!
Usually we focus on goals and Benny Hill style slipping and falling, but this week the focus is on NYC box lacrosse goaltending. It’s save city!
Rubber Sneakers, wet concrete and box lacrosse don’t often mix well, but when they do, you get Benny Hill style box, with lots of slipping and falling.
