Saskatchewan Rush attacker Zack Greer took a punch to the head from Calgary Roughnecks defender Scott Carnegie in Saturday’s game, and just as Greer’s helmet fell off, a lacrosse ball struck him in the face. Tough day for Zack.
We don’t follow much lacrosse around here, so we’re not totally certain if this is a weird thing or not. But here’s girthy Albany goalie Blaze Riorden going coast to coast to beat the third quarter buzzer in the opening round of the NCAA tournament against Cornell. The announcers certainly thought it was impressive!
The word hero is thrown around so loosely these days. But the guy who decked a Syracuse lacrosse player who had attacked two random people, then dared the police to arrest him for knocking the guy out with a single punch? Hero. (Police did not arrest him, because he's a hero.)
Hayes McGinley, a redshirt freshman midfielder for Syracuse lacrosse, was arrested last Saturday night, March 14, and charged with two counts of second-degree harassment. Okay. But what happened to his face?
With time running out in the third quarter of a game against Boulder (Co.) High School, Wheat Ridge HS goalie Nolan Hector hurled the ball as far down the field as he could. Amazingly, his 77-yard shot went in with 0.7 seconds remaining in the quarter. You can see the play developing—Nolan only had possession of the…
Keep your eye on the ball, if you can.
Damn, the guy with the ponytail really wanted to scrap here, didn't he? Bill O'Brien (what a great Irish Catholic-sounding enforcer name) runs after the Rochester player, rips off his helmet, pummels the shit out of him with a series of uppercuts, and still tries to fight after he gets knocked to the ground.
The first time I saw two laxers on the 2 train, I sneakily snapped a photo, giddy with delight that there may be somewhere I could play lacrosse in New York City.
Sure, sure, we're as done with #brand fails as you are, but this is still pretty weak. There was a lacrosse event going on tonight, and whoever's running the Twitter account for Warrior—"one of the sporting goods industry's premier manufacturer of innovative, high performance, cutting-edge equipment, footwear and…
Miles and Lyle Thompson co-won the Tewaaraton Trophy last night, college lacrosse's equivalent of the Heisman (named in honor of the sport's Iroquois heritage). Raised on the Onondaga and Akwesasne-Mohawk reservations, the brothers are the first Native Americans to take home the award. [Lacrosse Magazine]
Who's ready for some college lacrosse highlights? You're ready for some college lacrosse highlights.
In the lax-crazy scholastic sports scene of the high-end Washington D.C. market, a game between Landon School and Georgetown Prep is essentially 'Skins vs. Cowboys, except with more people named Topper. They're two of the fancy-pantsiest all-boys secondary schools in the area, and their athletic rivalry offers a good…
Waterford's Jacob Mika took a full-field heave with a few seconds left in the first quarter, and Riverton's goalie was either not paying attention or lost the ball in the sky, because Mika's buzzer-beater went in for a 6-0 lead.
Lacrosse: still the worst. The latest piece of evidence in support of this statement comes to us from the lacrosse fields of North Texas, where one man has filed a RICO lawsuit against the owners of the Dallas Lacrosse Academy, whom he claims are intimidating, threatening, and extorting players into attending their…
