Recently, the RIT hidden ball trick overtime goal has made big waves. People are now beginning to talk about the best hidden ball trick in the history of the game. Some publications have mentioned Maryland’s NCAA playoff game and the Iroquois U19 Lacrosse play. Sadly, many don’t know about De La Salle’s (questionable) Hidden Ball Trick Game Winner. Moreover, people reluctantly forget about the Gait brothers’ hidden ball trick play, which is byfar the best EVER.
This is how we described it one year ago:
Paul and Gary Gait don’t need an introduction. They are two of the best to have ever played the game. They revolutionized the sport and made it a highflying affair. In this video, the Canadian twins meet at midfield to create a smoke and mirrors play, the hidden ball trick. With their backs turned to the Navy defense in 1989, Paul smoothly retains the ball and begins to walk towards the goal while Gary casually power cradles to lure the goalie’s attention. And boom, Paul emits a laser from 30 yards away.
