LXM PRO 858 Sam Bradman Team STX

LXM PRO Thriller in San Diego

0 - Published January 8, 2014 by in LXM PRO, Pro Lacrosse

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.

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.

The Knighthawks raised their second consecutive Champions Cup banner, and then proceeded to down the Swarm 8-6 at Blue Cross Arena. Edmonton was able to hold on to a close win over Colorado in front of nearly 16,000 fans. The Philadelphia Wings made a loud and clear statement that they are not going to roll over this season as they topped the newly revamped Buffalo Bandits on the road. What will happen in Week 2?

With the NLL kicking off last weekend it’s only appropriate that we show off some old pro box lacrosse footage for Throwback Thursday. It’s 21 years later, and pro box lacrosse is still going strong. The MILL of 1993 has been replaced with the modern day NLL, but guys are still getting after it… just without the spandex.

By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool. While she still has to prove herself to make it from the training camp roster to the game roster, she has the support of many in the lacrosse community, including Connor Martin.

Lacrosse Performance of the Year: Maxx Davis

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!

It has recently been announced that the new United States Lacrosse League (USLL) is set to get off the ground in the fall of 2014, and information on the first franchise for the new league, the Maine Moose Trax, has also been released. From the media coverage so far, things are looking really rosy for the USLL… but is the picture really so bright for this new American box lacrosse league?

The rise of the “lax bro” has been evident over the past few years, and has certainly led to a lot of discussion. Over the summer, Connor wrote about the difference between “swag” and “swagger,” and I continued the conversation. After prompting from a recent article, Connor centered this week’s Hot Pot on the issue again. The debate has also resurfaced on social media, leading goalie John Geagan, of the NY Lizards and Manhattan College, to tweet his mind.

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.
