There were still some incredible moments in what was a slower week in pro lacrosse. We’ve got your top 5 pro lacrosse plays for the MLL’s Week 7 as the PLL was on a bye and there were no traces of any action on social media for the WPLL. So, on we go!
Top Pro Lacrosse Plays: MLL Week 7 & WPLL Week 4

1. Tate Boyce’s Absolute Thievery
This play obviously had to be No. 1 in our top 5 pro lacrosse plays list. In what was an incredible finish for the Boston Cannons 17-16 win over the Atlanta Blaze, former Providence goalkeeper Tate Boyce — who is actually the Cannons backup goalkeeper and was playing due to a penalty on Nick Marrocco — channeled his inner Dikembe Mutombo and denied the Blaze’s last-second shot attempt.
2. Steele Stanwick Scores Goal No. 100

Steele Stanwick, who was a Tewaaraton winner back in 2011, scored his 100th career goal in the Bayhawks win over the Dallas Rattlers. One hundred career goals is nothing to sneeze at, and it’s great to see one of the last players to still use traditional stringing do so well.
3. Bradley “Broadway” Voigt
Bradley “Broadway” Voigt — which is a completely appropriate nickname given his play on Sunday — made his career debut for the Dallas Rattlers in a flashy fashion.
Voigt scored his first MLL goal in the following fashion:

Yup. He did everything but sing a few bars of “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables. The man has talent!
4. Effort Play By Christian Mazzone
— Atlanta Blaze (@AtlantaBlaze) July 14, 2019
Any coach will tell you, it’s the effort plays that make the difference in a ballgame. Christian Mazzone put everything on the line for this goal. It was definitely an impressive goal and a solid effort in what would be a losing effort for the Blaze.
5. What A Underhanded Way To Score
— Major League Lacrosse (@MLL_Lacrosse) July 14, 2019
Devious! Dishonest! Deceitful! Lyle Thompson backs his man down and then dishes the ball underhanded over to Steele Stanwick, who is able to dunk it on the crease. Those defenders were wrongly dealt with, as I’m sure they had absolutely no prior knowledge of said maneuver by Thompson and Stanwick. It’s almost criminal!
