Even though a good deal of the local NYC box lacrosse talent was in Hawaii last weekend, LaxAllStars still put together a solid squad of guys to make the early morning trek down to Philadelphia, to take on a local club, the Athletics, in a good old-fashioned game of box lacrosse.
Above you can see some short, rough video from the game, but keep your eyes peeled for a FULL highlight video coming at you shortly from Throne of String! They threw together this quick highlight, and the final product promises to be a must watch video… kind of like the video from our trip to Syracuse!
The Athletics drew first blood, and then second blood, and third blood, by scoring a bunch of good transition goals early on. NYC settled down as the game wore on, and scored a couple goals of its own. A few of the guys had solid box experience, but we lacked many true veterans, and some of our guys were playing in their first “real” box lacrosse game. It was another great learning experience for everyone who made the trip, and afterwards we had a great time hanging out with the Philly crew.
Thanks to all who came out to watch, play, ref, or help run the game. Your attendance and support is very much appreciated! #GrowtheGame!
