Lyle Thompson Behind The Back Dodge to BTB Goal

Lyle Thompson scored 9 goals

Lyle Thompson casually throws a split dodge behind his back, makes another quick move, and then feeds the crease, where he finds his brother, Miles, who finished with a casual behind the back goal. When your stick is an extension of your body, and you play a ton of backyard lacrosse, these kind of plays become routine. For the rest of us, it’s simply amazing, but for the Thompsons? It’s just another day at the office.

Here is another view of the goal:

Don’t try this in a game unless you have practiced it 10,000 times in your backyard. If you’ve done the latter, you’re probably a Thompson, and that means you can do whatever you want, and make it work.
