The final LXM PRO game of season takes place in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 18th. To spice things up a little bit, we're running a helmet giveaway contest with Cascade Lacrosse. Predict the winner of Saturday's game and you could get yourself a brand new LXM PRO lacrosse helmet!
Tomorrow's LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor's preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done. One of our LAS Community members was thinking along the same lines, wondering who you'd pick for the LXM PRO season MVP.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
LXM PRO 858 is an event that you MUST go back and watch. The match was by far one of the most entertaining lacrosse games I've seen as of late, let alone an LXM PRO game. Even though Maverik United is out of contention, the team played hard and barely fell to Team STX with little to no time left.
Upon receiving a pass from brother Xander, Max Ritz buries the shot with seconds left to win the San Diego stop on the LXM PRO Tour.
With the second to last LXM PRO event in San Diego coming up tomorrow and Los Angeles is the final stop after that, we felt it would be appropriate to let you in to the secrets of how the guys of Team STX and Maverik United stay in shape between games and during the offseason.
Matt Russell was back in goal for Team STX after suffering a broken thumb a few weeks earlier, and before the game in Cocoa Beach, FL had seen a full quarter, Russell took another shot off the thumb, and had to leave the game. One had to wonder who would step in goal if Matt were unable to return? We got our answer only a few minutes later, as Maxx Davis gave up the short stick and stepped in between the pipes. The Lacrosse Performance of the Year ensued!
Maverik United brought out the kitchen sink this weekend in Las Vegas. Coming off three heart-breaking losses in a row, MavU got the much needed W, to bring them back within two games of Team STX. It was a frigid night in Vegas, but the fans were rewarded with one of the hottest nights of action we've seen from the LXM PRO Tour.
