Johns Hopkins teammates Joel Tinney and John Crawley, who have underwhelming names for lacrosse players, fooled most of Navy with a hidden-ball trick during Tuesday’s season opener. By the time Tinney delivered his shot, it was too late for the Midshipmen to defend.
Inside Lacrosse has published its 2017 Lacrosse All-Name Team, and the future of lacrosse names is exactly like the present. This year’s monikers include a Winnie, a Kiwi, two Skys, and one Rich Mix.
A lacrosse scrimmage between the Dayton and Western Michigan club teams was called off due to lightning on Saturday. The score was tied when the cancellation happened, and if there’s anything a lax bro hates, it’s a game ending in a tie. Fortunately, the Dayton and Western Michigan players were able to come up with an…
With 3.3 seconds left in Saturday’s game, Brodie Merrill of the Boston Cannons flung a Hail Mary that found its way into the back of the net and forced overtime against the Rochester Rattlers.
Yale beat Harvard today for the Ivy League lacrosse tournament title, winning its fourth trophy in five years and levying some punishment to its hated rival along the way—as happened to the Crimson’s Joe Lang here in the fourth quarter.
Orange County High School’s agriculture teacher Patti Williams went to check on the school’s animal pen on Sunday morning, when she made a startling discovery: Tim the Turkey was missing.
Don’t you even think about bringing that weak shit near Alex Buque’s goal, or he’ll turn you into dust.
Get a load of Josh Byrne’s goal against Georgetown from this morning.
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.

This inevitability has triggered those high in the NCAA food chain to insinuate that every sport save football and basketball is doomed. Case in point: the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, comprised of…
