On this week’s edition of the Lacrosse Classified podcast, we look back at Week 12 of the National Lacrosse League and put a series of unusual calls Under Review from a thrilling finish in Halifax in our G Wilson Construction segment. Rob Hellyer and Zach Higgins join the show.
Rob Hellyer, Zach Higgins: Lacrosse Classified Podcast, Ep. 67
First up this week is Rob Hellyer of the Toronto Rock. Rob is tied for the league lead in goals scored after putting up a sock trick in Saturday’s win over Vancouver. We talk about the Rock’s offensive success despite some key injuries up front, his rehab from a devastating knee injury and his thoughts on Dan Dawson dropping the gloves on Saturday.
Next up is Zach Higgins, goaltender for the Philadelphia Wings, who currently leads the NLL in both goals against average and save percentage. We talk about his years as a backup leading up to the chance he received this year to be a starter, the change in confidence in Philly this year and one fantastic paint job on his helmet.
And as we record on Family Day in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Evan brings two of his kids along for Stampede Tack’s #WhoYaGott, including Daryna who sits in 5th overall. In Quick Sticks, we hand out our NLL mid-season awards.
A big thank you to our partners: the Vancouver Warriors, Associated Labels and Packaging, Stampede Tack and G Wilson Construction.
