The Hardest Lacrosse Hit You’ll See Today

Editor’s Note: This was a malicious(arguable), illegal hit. We obviously do not condone these types of hits, but we do publish them. We never wish ill-will on any player. The player appears to be OK. That said, enjoy.

A big helmet-to-helmet hit in the Johns Hopkins vs. Virginia game last weekend occurred when Blue Jay Rob Guida got bopped by Virginia’s Pat Harbeson. The Referees called it a one minute non-releasable penalty, but Quint Kessenich wanted an ejection. We are glad Guida is OK. What do you think? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.

    Lose ball push is only thing I see… He came head on and ya his hands were apart but cmon Wat ref calls that far apart a cross check and he didn’t make a lot of contact with his head he just got low to push up I don’t think that’s a penalty

  • Calthedog

    dirty hit? YES. The ball was clearly on the ground and the hit was unnecessary. But not too bad for the ejection

  • Mottacross195

    i say that was a fair clean hit, hockey and football got the same thing going if not more dangerous. I think there is nothing to be argued about over this play.

    Absolutely not an ejection!! This could be deemed a penalty but it is still debatable. The player clearly ducks into the hit. Lacrosse players are taught to slide with the body.  Physicality is part of the game of lacrosse and why we wear the protective equipment. There are already very few big hits in the game compared to other contact sports such as football and ice hockey.

    I saw this live. was so sick because the hopkins guy got smoked and then preceded to rip cheese on the man up resulting from the penalty. after he scored he just stared at the box where Harbeson was sitting.

    Never agree with a head to head…  should the Hopkins players helmet come off? NO!  You are playing a highly agressive game at an elevated level, put your equipment on the right way and play!  If there was no head to head on this I call loose ball push… 

  • LukePeterson7

    the hopkins player didn’t have his stick let alone the ball. you wanna go play football harbeson? go tryout for that sport.

    Cheap as punk on Virginia. Virginia has no class and it starts with the coaches….

  • EHS

    After he lost the stick the hit was bad, but his shoulder hits first then his head comes to the chin. Watch real close and click the Play button quickly so its almost a frame-by-frame.  Not the best play, but some guys like to hit first and then go for the ball at least he picked it up.  I have the same problem when I get hit I’m 6’3 I get a shoulder hit that ends up on my head, you try to hit up to get better leverage. I would agree that at D1 you should be abel to stop after a guy loses his stick and turns his head.

    Absolutely  clean! If
    you want to take hitting out of the game take the equipment away? Or have the
    kids (parents) play soccer
