[mks_one_half]We had a ton of lacrosse to watch last weekend, I hope you got your fix. Fists flew in Week 7 and the world took notice, but we’ll get to that later.
It’s probably worth noting that Calgary remains winless, the Swarm dropped a pair to Toronto and the Stealth seem to be back on track. We are almost halfway through the season and the leaders are jumping out ahead and others are falling behind.

New England at Toronto – 7:30 PM EST – NLL Live; TSN GO
Buffalo at Rochester – 7:30 PM EST – NLL Live; TSN GO
Vancouver at Calgary – 9:00 PM EST – Watch

The Beating Seen ‘Round the World
Unless you live under a rock and you’re just now coming out, there’s no way you missed this little clip circluating the interwebz, SportsCenter and anywhere people talk about sports and/or fighting.
Keogh is taking the ball to the house and you can’t quite tell if he made goalie contact or not, but he wasn’t happy with the 6’4″, 245 pound O’Brien (one of the biggest guys in the league) on his back and quickly ripped his aggressor’s helmet off, probably before he realized who it was.
Keogh was to his feet quickly and not ready to walk away from the scrap, the problem was, he turned his back to O’Brien, causing him to charge Keogh and to rip his bucket off before delivering some devastating upper cuts. Keogh had no chance to even swing a fist during the beat down, but in the world of the National Lacrosse League, nothing was dirty or out of the ordinary here. Just an enforcer doing his job and a much smaller man as today’s honest work.
The Knighthawks went on to win this game over New England 15-10. Keogh finished with 1 goal and 2 assists, all coming after the 1st quarter fisticuffs.
The very next day, Bill showed his soft side with a little keep away. This is the true spirit of the NLL.
