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?

The NLL kicked off last weekend, and although Colorado dropped their home opener, they were making big waves online. Trendsmap, a website that monitors what’s trending on Twitter in different cities, tweeted that “Mammoth” was trending in Denver during the game against Edmonton.
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.
The NLL is back! But before opening night could officially kick off for Rochester, they had a little banner raising to do…
NLL rosters are finalized and we are officially underway! Four LAS writers pick winners, and preview games each week of the 2014 National Lacrosse League season… can you pick winners better than the LAS crew?
Last time around we previewed our #9 team, the Philadelphia Wings. Over the last three days we’ve previewed our #6, #7, and #8 NLL teams as well, and our rankings are really starting to take shape!
Mark Powers and Connor are counting down the days until the NLL season kicks off and so is The Lacrosse Network! Over on The Lacrosse Show, Mark and CW are releasing one new pick in their NLL Top 9 each day until the season kicks off. Yesterday they released their #9 preseason team, and got to talking about the Philadelphia Wings!
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.
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!
Below you can find each Major League Lacrosse franchise’s supplemental draft picks for 2013. The biggest names in the game might not be involved in this draft, but this is where teams fill holes and build strong foundations. So pay attention… it’s important!
Rob Pannell posted a photo of himself on a big screen video board in Times Square a few days ago, and I have been waiting for Tuesday to roll around so I could share it all with you in this week’s Photo of the Week!
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 NLL season is finally upon us and the LAS staff couldn’t be more enthralled – so much so that we are doing our own little NLL fantasy league. Fantasy lacrosse has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few seasons and is continuing to grow. Play against LaxAllStars today!
