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.

These two guys changed the way today’s game is played. Their creativity brought about changes to the rules by which we now play. One example of this was the Air Gait, which was disallowed shortly a handful of brilliant goals scored in this fashion, by each of the twins, as well as a few others capable enough to pull it off before it was outlawed. Here’s another example: two players are no longer allowed to stand in close proximity out of a dead ball situation, largely because of deceptive plays like this one – the “dead ball” hidden ball trick executed to perfection.

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.

The phrase “best lacrosse play ever” seems to be heavily associated with trick plays…hidden this, hidden that. These are always cool to watch, but the best “plays” are those tic tac toe goals where every player is in the right place right time, develops openings, and scores.

Obviously just an opinion.
