On this week’s edition of the Lacrosse Classified podcast, we look at a crazy finish in Georgia between the Swarm and Roughnecks, a defensive battle between the Rock and Thunderbirds and in G Wilson Construction‘s Under Review, we look back on two unusual challenges this past week under the virtual goal rule in the NLL. Mike Accursi and Rhys Duch join us on the show.
Mike Accursi, Rhys Duch: Lacrosse Classified
Our first guest is the first-year head coach of the league-leading Halifax Thunderbirds, Mike Accursi. We talk about the Thunderbirds success, the huge crowds that have turned up in Halifax and the contributions of Ryan Benesch and Graeme Hossack to the team.
Our second guest is the overtime hero in the 2019 NLL Cup Finals, from the Calgary Roughnecks and Victoria Shamrocks, Rhys Duch. We discuss what it is like playing for Curt Malawsky, the return of Dane Dobbie and the rehab process Rhys had to undergo this past offseason with an achilles injury.
As always we play another round of Stampede Tack‘s #WhoYaGott with eight big games on the schedule in Week 14 and in quick sticks, the performance of a young goaltender from Saskatchewan in Laine Hruska who has been turning heads in the Arena Lacrosse League.
