Yesterday’s Ales Hrebesky Memorial Super Post focused on the results and featured a ton of offensive action. Today’s post focuses on the other side of the ball, and it’s ALL about defense! Big hits, big saves, great takeaway checks and so much more… this Defensive Highlights video is top notch!
The 2014 Ales Hrebesky Memorial was my third straight, and it surpassed all expectations. By all accounts, it was the best Memorial ever, and after last year’s 20th anniversary tournament, that is certainly saying something.
This week was awesome for me and the boys of Team Goldstar Tel Aviv. We traveled to Prague, Czech Republic to play in the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial Box Lacrosse Tournament. We didn’t know what to expect, because most of us had never even played one box game in our entire lives.
USBOXLA announced their tournament schedule for the 2014 summer series. The best youth box lacrosse teams from the United States and Canada will participate in each event.

Here is a short video that shows off the level of play and styles of lacrosse that meet in Radotin (in the Czech Republic) for the annual box lacrosse tournament known as the Ales Hrebesky Memorial!

The 21st annual Ales Hrebesky Memorial box lacrosse tournament kicks off in the Czech Republic in less than one week, and we couldn’t be more excited. Players and coaches are already starting their long journeys to get to Radotín, so it’s time to preview the 2014 version of the event!
Living boxla legend Randy Fraser put together a star-studded team, made up mostly of former PLL and NALL players from Boston and Baltimore. We took on the Vermont Voyagers and Syracuse Stingers up in Syracuse’s OnCenter War Memorial arena. What a weekend of box lacrosse!
Could the NHL All-star Sidney Crosby make the jump to the National Lacrosse League?
The 2014 Canadian Lacrosse League season will come to a conclusion on Friday night when the regular season champion Ohsweken Demons play host to the Niagara Lock Monsters. With the two clubs on top of the CLax standing the entire regular season, this showdown seemed destined-to-happen for weeks. The prize for the winner: the Creators’ Cup.
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.
Sports fans love upsets. At this time of the year March Madness often dominate the headlines with lower seeds knocking out college basketball giants (Mercer!) in the opening rounds of the tournament. In the Canadian Lacrosse League playoff semifinals no such “shockers” occurred last weekend as the top two teams both advanced in highly-contested games.
