Team Canada destroyed Team USA, 19-6, to win another Heritage Cup.

Four-time defending world indoor lacrosse champion Canada defeated the United States 19-6 in the Heritage Cup revival Saturday at First Ontario Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. Curtis Dickson scored four goals, Shawn Evans and Ryan Benesch each added two goals and three assists, and Canada’s big-bodied defenders frequently forced the U.S. to settle for perimeter shots. Goalie Brandon Miller, a reserve on Canada’s gold-medal winning team in 2015, kept the U.S. at bay for most of the game. Joe Resetarits and Tom Schreiber were the lone bright spots for the U.S., scoring two goals apiece. Resetarits added an assist in the loss.

High Point named its 2018 captains.

High Point University men's lacrosse head coach Jon Torpey has named Peyton Garrett, Jason Ashwood, Zach Tuell and Keegan O'Connor as the program's captains for the 2018 season. "These four young men exemplify all of the qualities of a great leader both on and off the field," Torpey said. "It has been amazing to see how all four have taken different paths to get to this honor and the impact they have had on their teammates and this university over the past four years. The staff and I could not be more excited knowing that they will be leading a motivated group of individuals for the 2018 season. This group of four joins a very special line of past captains who have helped create and live by the standards of our culture."

Lacrosse is booming in Illinois.

Two years since the Decatur Park District developed the city's first lacrosse program, the number of local kids that have been introduced to the sport has doubled, officials say. Lacrosse, which combines principles and skills used in soccer, hockey and football, had been played in surrounding communities such as Springfield, Bloomington and Peoria. Decatur players of both genders can now compete against those cities in the Central Illinois Lacrosse Conference, a milestone reached for the first time during last year's summer season.

District leaders say they're pleased with how the sport has thrived in the area since its 2015 introduction and plan to focus now on making lacrosse accessible to a larger group of children. That meant expanding the ages for which classes were available. Initially, only 8- to 14-year-olds could participate in the district's programs.

Looks like it was a fun time down at Homewood for the alumni game.

Thanks to all the Blue Jay legends who came out to the alumni game tonight!!! #ForeverABlueJay #Family

Speaking of alumni games, Denver alums beat the young boys 8-7 in a great weekend for the Pioneers.

The University of Denver men's lacrosse team out-shot the Alumni All-Stars 62-37, but dropped their 2017 fall ball finale 8-7 to the alums on Saturday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. 2016 Tewaaraton Award Finalist and 2017 MLL Champion Connor Cannizzaro led the alumni with four of their eight goals, to go with one helper. The Cannizzaro brothers played together on Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium for the first time since the 2015 National Championship season, and Sean added to the brothers' tally in the win with a goal and an assist of his own. Denver Outlaw Eric Law found the back of the net once and added two assists for the alumni.

Christopher stopped by Binghamton to check out some scrimmages between Binghamton, Cleveland State, & Manhattan.

Big weekend for a couple Rutgers legends, Bob Venack & Tom Hayes.

Looking good, Vermont.

Nice article about all the recent rules changes in boy’s lacrosse.

The 2018 high school boys’ lacrosse rules changes include clarifications to stick alignment and the use of visibly contrasting gloves and shafts, which are expected to ease the game’s officiating. Overall, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Boys Lacrosse Rules Committee adopted and refined numerous officiating related rules during its July 17-19 meeting in Indianapolis. Collectively, the committee adopted or clarified 15 boys’ lacrosse rules and officials’ signals. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors. “The committee believes the sport of boys’ lacrosse is currently in very good shape,” said James Weaver, director of performing arts and sports and staff liaison for boys’ lacrosse. “The committee is excited to continue looking into the health and safety of the sport, while minimizing risk during its growth.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

I DEMAND A RECOUNT!!: Here are the 100 most influential people in Philadelphia.

What’s fascinating about compiling a list of the most influential people in Philadelphia is that there’s really no way to quantify influence. Influence is slippery. It’s mercurial. It can swell in an instant and vanish just as quickly. It foments in corner offices and in the halls of power, but also on stages, in newspaper pages and on Twitter. To get a handle on it, you’ve got to talk to people. A lot of people. So we did. We wanted to know: Who is shaping the way Philadelphians think and talk and work and live right now? The list that follows is the result of those conversations. Yes, it contains some familiar faces. It’s also delightfully full of surprises. Because influence is quite subjective, we’re sure this list will spur more than a few heated arguments — in fact, we’re counting on it. So dig in, and start debating.

Things are going great in San Francisco: Does placing a 'no valuables inside' sign in a car window deter break-ins?

In San Francisco, where no automobile parked on the street is immune from glass-smashing thieves, some people have taken to posting signs on car windows announcing that there are no valuables inside. The hope, of course, is that a thief will read the notice and decide: "Huh. No valuables in this one.I guess I'll break into some other car." On Tuesday, a Reddit user posted a photo of such a sign and posed the question "Do you think it works?" to the Reddit community. A lively debate ensued. "Sounds a lot like something that someone with valuables in their car would say," wrote a skeptical Maddox83a. But iamthewaffler disagreed, citing personal experience.
