In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
What Mustafar said.
Hit was late, high, and (you don’t have to agree with this one) totally unnecessary up by 3 touchdowns. I like a good hit as much as anyone, but glorifying that one is poor.
The first hit in the US-Japan game is in no way, shape, or form deserving of a “best lacrosse hit of the week”; Clearly the hit was illegal, malicious, and completely unnecessary given the apparent 100 pound difference between the two athletes. On top of that it reflects poorly on the US who were up by 20 at that point.
