How Do You Score In Lacrosse From 95 Yards Away?


We’ve all seen some pretty fantastic long-range lacrosse goals, and Loyola’s Reid Acton scoring from 75 yards away against Fairfield was certainly one of the most impressive of all time. However, today we found a 95 yard goal, and if you can do basic math, you know that’s 20 more yards.

The only problem with this goal is that we don’t actually get to see it go in the net, which that brings us to our next issue… there don’t seem to be any players (apart from the goalie) anywhere near the goal… so how did it go in? Was the sun in his eyes? We are now accepting real and fake stories to explain how that ball could have possibly gone in.

Is it interesting that Reid Acton and Marc-Antoine Pion are both Canadians? Do our neighbors North of the border have a ton more longsticks that practice the long bomb? Or is it just coincidence?

  • This is an easy one, elementary my dear Watson…
    first you have to look at the clues. First what situation would cause someone
    to shoot from that far? The second is that the goalie is backing up as soon as
    he comes into frame. Third what tendencies do goalies have that could lead to
    this? well its very easy when you break it down the goalie not thinking
    anything would happen came out of the goalie and was waiting for the next play
    well above his goal line. Mystery solved

  • i was playing in this game it was near the end of the quarter and the pole threw the ball down the field. my goalie came out of the net to catch the ball but the field we were playing on was really bumpy so the ball hit a bump and went into the net.
