Two Crippling Lacrosse Fights

By Lacrosse Playground | July 24, 2012 |
Two lacrosse teams engaged in a fight July 20, which ended with one player getting knocked out. Two days later - keep up - the same two teams played AGAIN and a fight ensued. The first game was an apparent semi-final game, but they somehow played again two days later? You couldn't pay me to learn the ins-and-outs of Canadian indoor. And another thing, don't these guys look like teenagers? Read More...

2012 Scotland U19 Lacrosse Blog From Turku, Finland

By Lacrosse Playground | July 19, 2012 |
The schedule became clear to us today. Tomorrow we must beat the Dutch for the chance to play the Welsh once more, if we win both of these games we get 9th place. If we lose to the Dutch we play the Koreans, a fight for 11th place. This made our goal very clear - we must beat a team we have beaten to play a team who have beaten us, making both games perhaps harder mentally thanks to the history. Read More...

2012 Scotland U19 Lacrosse Blog From Turku, Finland

By Lacrosse Playground | July 18, 2012 |
Today, was all about lifting team morale after yesterday's loss against the Welsh. With the team deflated and most of our minds clearly in the wrong place, we were taken out for an unconventional training session. Rather than running drills, we ran six-on-six for 1 or 2 hours, hacking pieces out of each other and generally letting some steam off - none of us were ready to think about walk-throughs. The weather helped, with the sun hot enough to allow just pinnies. We reminded ourselves that although we could now only finish 9th, if we won our next game we could face the Welsh again, motivation enough to get everyone's head back where it should be. I personally found ice cream, Subway, and muffins helped me get over the loss. Read More...
