would have been legal if he didn’t extend his arms…still a good hit, his teammate set him up for that one.

Only reason I say it’s illegal is because he extended his arms after the hit

In HS, it would be illegal…more than likely 2 minutes non-releasable, mainly due to the kid on the clear being defenseless.

Should be legal. Great hit. But it’s illegal because he extended his arms through the hit. Lacrosse is getting soft

guy caught it with his left….if he had the stick in the proper hand (right), then his back is shielding him, and the defender can’t get as clean of a shot

Should be legal. At this level of the game these kind of hits are expected and athletes at this level should be in the kind of shape to where they can take hits like this. The player appeared to be fine, shaken up maybe, but it is a contact sport. If people really want the game to continue to grow, then clean agressive play should not be discouraged. The bad play was the pass and not the hit, the hit was a result of play below the talent level of the game. The other reality is that whether the hit should or shouldn’t be legal, in this situation, it will probably happen every time. Heads up play needs to be emphasided more and not argueing about if hits are legal or not. Teach young players to be aware of situations so that they can avoid big contact not make them believe that big contact isn’t a part of the game.

He made no play on the ball and hit a defenseless player. That’s a penalty. You can’t hit a defenseless player. Yes, it was a hospital pass, but there are rules that were instilled to protect players from taking hits like this one.

Yes, slight cross check so illegal, but otherwise a beautiful check!

100% legal. No head to head, hit landed on the shoulder. 80% of the time will get called a penalty in the game today.

If 80% of referees making that call, call it illegal… its probably illegal, at least by majority rule #America. Adjust your game or sit in the box.

haha i love how #6 goes after #10 when he was the one who threw his buddy the hospital ball. This is a classic example of a big blow up hit that gets the fireworks nowadays even though there wasn’t much wrong with it. These females below want the cross-check and I guess I can kind of see it if you’re gonna whine about it. Otherwise I see a good lacrosse play where a kid leads with his shoulder. A shame that the game has come to this though. Penalty or not #6 owes his teammate a beer and an apology for throwing him a shitty ball.

Looked kind of like a cross check when he extended his arms through the hit with his hands apart on the shaft.

That’s how you’re supposed to hit. Only a cross check if you don’t have you’re gloves on them.

Should’ve been an easy non-releasable penalty. That’s the definition of a cross check, Kid didn’t used the shoulder, instead used the stick and arms with hands apart on the stick. If he would’ve ran through him with his shoulder I would make the argument that it’s legal even though he was defenseless, but since his hands are apart on the stick that right there should’ve made it an easy call.

illegal, looks like he might have started running early and the player catching the ball was not looking in that direction. this recently happened in a game i played in where a player looked to the left and was about to make a pass, when my teammate bodied up on him and it wouldve been clean, but the other player just wasnt looking
