Team STX goalie, Matt Russell, takes a shot to the face. Following the ricochet, Maverik United crease attackman, Erik Krum, makes a diving attempt to recover the loose ball. The ref said the ball was in the crease, Krum thought it was out. One way or the other, Maxx Davis and Andrew Casimir didn’t care, don’t mess with their goalie!

The most recent LXM PRO event went down in Atlanta over the weekend, and Team STX came away with the 18-16 win over Maverik United. Maverik held a five goal lead in the fourth quarter, but fell apart at the seams as STX scored 8 straight goals to take the lead, and then hang on for the W. In a little over 10 minutes, STX went from losing 15-10, to winning 18-15.

LXM PRO 404: Atlanta Preview, K18 Time?

0 - Published October 25, 2013 by in LXM PRO

The LXM PRO is in Atlanta, GA this weekend as Maverik United tries to even the all-time series with Team STX at three games apiece. I’m assuming you can do basic math, but if you can’t, the above means Mav is 2-3, while STX is 3-2. Most of the games between these two squads have been relatively tight, and both teams are capable of winning on any given day. So what will be the deciding factors in Saturday’s 6:15pm tilt?

GetBenched has put up three amazing videos featuring Major Indoor Lacrosse League (MILL). The MILL started up in 1987, and is the predecessor to the NLL we all currently know. There was another NLL back in the 70s, which eventually folded before the MILL came into existence. This stuff is pure vintage box lacrosse! Jofa helmets and spandex everywhere!

4onetwolax had us racking our brains for a good nominee for a lacrosse themed Burger King “the King” commercial. He came up with three great examples himself and asked others to propose their potential top videos. We have to go with the King starring as Brett Queener with this full field goalie goal.

New LXM PRO Video Series: Interview

0 - Published October 17, 2013 by in Interviews, LXM PRO, Videos

The LXM PRO TOur has been a whirlwind of change and evolution so far, and some people, especially back East, seem to be a little confused as to a number of the details, and even the overall story. To remedy this, the LXM, in conjunction with Adrenaline (an LXM and LAS sponsor), has put together an episodic series of videos which will detail the Tour, and give viewers an in-depth look at what is going on. To get even more in-depth, we sat down with LXM PRO and Adrenaline All-Star, Xander Ritz, and peppered him with questions about the Tour and the video series.

The year was 1975. The NLL had just started up and the Philadelphia Wings were the most popular team in this brand new professional sports league. Greats like Jim Wasson, John Grant Senior, and the Lloyd brothers played in the league, the helmets didn’t have face masks and the sticks were all made out of wood. The shorts were also truly short.

One of the Japanese attendees of last year’s Hawai’i Tournament caught the Wimmer boys “warming up” for an early round game. Paul Rabil, Max Seibald, Brett Queener, and a bunch of other pros are messing around, throwing some tricks, and proving their full belief in the “sun’s out, guns out” mentality.

The LXM ATS (Lacrosse x Movement Tournament Series) enjoyed some fantastic weather in California’s capital city, and fans were treated to an exciting game, where Team STX topped Maverik United 12-10.

A couple weekends ago we were lucky enough to make it down to LXM 801 in Orem, UT. I caught a peek of Matt Russell and Johnny Rodriguez’s goalie clinic and I noticed something a little different about Matt’s pocket. One of the high school guys, focused on the lesson, pulled Matt aside when he […]
