In order to keep the ball in-bounds and to give my team a better chance of gaining possession, I added the “Goose” to my skill set. This is a very simple but effective skill to add to your repertoire.
Check out the 2009 New York State Class C Championship video below and watch Lyle’s 23-0 Lafayette Lancers take on the 19-1 (and #3 seed) Manhasset Indians. Manhasset wins the game 16-11, and the Thompsons weren’t the only greats playing in this one!
With the regular season drawing to a close it is time for sun burns and tan lines, lacrosse pennies, and of course summer camps! This summer I will be traveling on the road with the Rhino Lacrosse crew as we hit the road for five Rhino Lacrosse Academies in Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and back to Oregon to wrap thing up in beautiful Bend before the highly anticipated Oregon Lacrosse Classic.
The Duke Blue Devils raced out to an early lead, then weathered a ferocious Notre Dame storm, to pull out the 11-9 win, and repeat as champs of the D1 men’s lacrosse world. It was an impressive team effort, and from the get go, Duke looked poised and ready to play.
After each year of NCAA Lacrosse rolls to a stop, we go through and find all the D1 players we can, who use traditionally strung lacrosse sticks. It can be a regular six or eight diamond pocket, a pita pocket, or something crazier… as long as it uses leather and string, it’s eligible!
Limestone defeated LIU Post 12-6 for the D2 national title in NCAA Men’s Lacrosse today. The game started out tight, but Limestone slowly began to pull away and never looked back. On the day, they were the best team, but the margin of victory was larger than anticipated, and probably bigger than many segments of the game would make you think.
Tufts took down Salisbury 12-9 to claim the 2014 NCAA Division 3 Men’s Lacrosse title. The Gulls of SU went down 1-0 on an early Tufts goal, but would build up an early 3-1 lead, and look in control. Tufts fought back, winning face offs and creating transition and the game was tied at half, 5-5. Tufts began to inch away in the third quarter, and eventually built up a solid lead. Scoring 3 goals in 48 seconds never hurts…
In game 2 of our Final Four action yesterday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish found a comfortable win over the Maryland Terrapins to advance to the National Championship game on Monday, 1pm et.
Welcome to Championship Weekend! We’ll have photos from the games, photos from the day’s events and scene, and video wherever relevant. Also, be on the lookout for notes from Chris Rosenthall. He’s taking his professional talents to the college game this weekend!
We’ve received all FIVE Finalist’s videos for the #TotallyEpoch Contest, and man oh man, they are good! We’ve checked each submission out ourselves, but now it’s time to share them with the rest of the world!
The lift check is one of the most effective checks a defenseman can utilize. The “dirty” lift check is a special technique which I have developed in my style of play.
We’re set up to see FIVE great games this weekend for NCAA Championship Weekend (two D1 semis, the D2 final, D3 final, and D1 final), and as usual, long stick midfielders will play a huge part. While there may not be a CJ Costabile of 2014 (then again, there may be!), these guys will play a huge role in how the games turn out.
Upset-minded Long Island University-Post will try to end their surprise post-season run with a victory in the NCAA Division II National Championship when they face second-ranked Limestone College on Sunday.
