World Lax: U.S. claims fourth consecutive gold at Worlds; England takes bronze

July 15, 2022

Women’s field lacrosse is a hell of a sport, and it doesn’t get the coverage it deserves from us. I hope to rectify that someday with more staff and resources. Women’s field is a vastly different sport from the men’s game, with its own rules and nuances, and should be appreciated as such. The athletes are strong, talented and inspiring and I encourage you to check out a game near…

PLL: Cannons can’t beat Teat

June 28, 2021

Cannons Lacrosse Club struggled against Atlas LC on Sunday afternoon at Homewood Field, losing 18-17 despite a valiant effort from Lyle Thompson at the buzzer.

June 27, 2021

Kyle Harrison’s last game at Homewood Field ended in an 11-9 loss to Chaos, but with his family in attendance for post-game hugs, it wasn’t all bad.

June 27, 2021

What a game for Adam Ghitelman. The Archers’ goaltender not only stopped nine shots in the team’s 17-8 win over Waterdogs LC on Saturday night, he added an assist and a two-point goal. And he did both in style. Midway through the second quarter with Archers up 7-3, Ghitelman scooped up a loose ball near his crease and ran 65 yards downfield, making it to the Waterdogs’ arc before passing…
