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.

If you could change anything about Major League Lacrosse, what would it be? Chris Rosenthall talks about six things he’d like to see change in the MLL.
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.
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…

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!
