The Lacrosse Network broadcast the 2013 NLL Combine Prospects Game last night, and it’s a great watch! These guys are all trying to make a name for themselves in this game, and are playing with hopes of being drafted tonight (Monday, Sep. 16th).
The Six Nations Chiefs defeated the Victoria Shamrocks in Game 6 of the 2013 Mann Cup to claim the championship, and the Chiefs now hold the mantle as Canada’s best Senior Lacrosse team. Cody Jamieson had seven points to take home MVP honors.
August 23rd-25th The Chicago Outlaws hosted a four team shootout in the Sears Centre. CI2L box lacrosse at it’s finest.
There is a ton of excellent new lacrosse video up online, so we’re culling the internet and dropping it all in one place, for your viewing pleasure. Look Friday the 13th in the eye, and be careful not to blink!
This is easily one of the weirdest and most excellent stories of the Summer… Photo Credit: Gary Woodburn Colin Doyle had a goal and an assist for Six Nations through two periods of Game 5, but with 11 minutes left in the game, both Six Nations goalies had been kicked out for illegal equipment, and Doyle stepped in, donned pads for the rest of game, and made six saves on nine shots for the win… oh, and he also added another…
The Six Nations Chiefs won a pivotal Game 4 on Vancouver Island last night over the Victoria Shamrocks 8-3. The win tied the best of seven series at two gams apiece, and the five goal winning margin is the largest one we’ve seen in the four games so far. It looked like it was going to be another super tight game after a 2-2 first period, but Six Nations came out hot in the second, and pulled away.
With an 8-6 win on Monday night on Vancouver Island, the Victoria Shamrocks now hold a 2-1 advantage in the best of seven series over the Six Nations Chiefs. The winner of the series is crowned champion of Senior Men’s Lacrosse in Canada, and gets to hoist the monstrous Mann Cup.
Randy Fraser was playing for the Boston Blazers in the 1990s, and when I found the above footage of a CRAZY MILL box lacrosse brawl, I knew I needed to get Randy’s take on the video. It turns out he uploaded it to YouTube, and played in the game, so there really is no one better suited to regale us with a quality story!
The Six Nations Chiefs won Game 2 of the Mann Cup last night, 10-8, over the Victoria Shamrocks, and that evens the series at one win apiece, as the Shamrocks took Game 1 in a low-scoring 5-4 win. The two teams are starting to figure each other out a bit more, and the offensive production saw a marked increase. With some much offensive talent on the floor, it was only a matter of time!
Welcome Jamie Plunkett back to LAS! Jamie wrote a post earlier this week on 20 years of the BLAX lacrosse club in Berlin, Germany, and now he’s back with a recap of the first European Lacrosse League tournament, which was also held in Berlin. Jamie runs the Deutschland Adler Lacrosse Club, and has played professionally in the NLL and NALL.
I am always impressed by the stick handling of these players, and although I was 8 years old when this game took place, it still looks like it’s from a different time and place. I guess 25 years IS a different time and place… Maybe it’s just me, but I still think it is amazing how much the game can change, and even more shocking that it can do so in such a short period of time.
A little bit of go Connor dropped a blind item about a field goalie trying his hand at box lacrosse. Last Friday, we revealed who the mystery man was, and even showed off a video of him playing against some kids. There are a lot of great moments in that video, including this one captured here.
Please welcome PJ Martin, of UnCommon Fit to LAS! PJ was in Philly for the Philadelphia Box Lacrosse Association’s Championship Game on Monday night, and he got to take in some gritty Canadian-style box lacrosse right here in the US… and in the City of Brotherly Love! Ironic, right? Check out PJ’s experience at the Rizz, and learn a little more about what just might be the best men’s box lacrosse league in the US.
