Season summary: It’s been a few years since people have discussed Lehigh being in the national spotlight. 2018 might have been the return of the Mountain Hawks to the national stage, or at least the start of it. Lehigh started their season with two good wins against NJIT and Mercer before taking on a nationally ranked North Carolina squad. The Mountain Hawks had a one-goal lead with 3:04 left in the game, but UNC tied it with a goal from Timmy Kelly 42 seconds later and William Perry won it in overtime. But despite the loss, it showed Lehigh had some very good talent.
They opened up Patriot League play with wins over Holy Cross, Colgate, and Army West Point. Then came a big midweek game at home against Rutgers, which was another dogfight. The Mountain Hawks tied the game up at seven midway through the final frame before Jules Heningburg scored the eventual game-winner for the Scarlet Knights. More heartbreak again for Lehigh, but they would take care of Lafayette and Hofstra in their next two games. They suffered their first conference loss of the season to Navy in the following game, where they gave up two separate 3-0 second half runs by the Midshipmen, before edging out Boston University on the road to end March.
I really love this Harlem Lacrosse summer 2018 highlight reel.
Air Force putting in that work.
There is just something about a boy who promises to write you notes everyday and knows to protect the popcorn during pillow fights that tugs on my heartstrings, and something that anyone who’s seen To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before will understand. I think I speak for everyone who has watched the Netflix rom-com when I say that Peter Kavinsky is bae. Viewers of the film loved the movie in its entirety, but their appreciation for a certain lacrosse player definitely stands out.
I like this New Balance Freeze 2.0 commercial.
Here’s some background on the Ice Lacrosse event that’s been making the rounds on #LacrosseTwitter.
You gotta grind, rain or shine.
The Charlotte Secondary school lacrosse team has a great story to tell. Just ask NBA superstar Chris Paul. “It’s about more than just the game of lacrosse,” said Paul. “It’s just a great story.” Paul thought so much of the team’s story, he produced a film about it. “Crossroads” will air Thursday night at 9 p.m., on the network.
For two years a film crew followed the program, a club team fielded largely of at-risk, underprivileged African American boys. Their coach is local surgeon Bobby Selkin. “I know we’re doing tremendous things, but it is crazy to see it on film.” Selkin, who’s children attended the school, helped begin the program in 2015. “We were literally the bad news bears of lacrosse,” he said. “We were horrible.”
Here’s a fun YouTube Liberty University lacrosse video.
If you haven’t already heard, the NCAA rules committee recently met in Indianapolis to vote on several changes to the college level game for the 2019 season.
The 2 major rule changes to be approved were:
1. Introduction of the shot clock
2. Bringing back “the dive” play with a twist
And unlike this rule change, these ones are for real. There is still another hurdle the rules have to pass before they become official but odds are they will be adopted.
NCAA rules usually make their way down to the lower levels after some vetting so even if you don’t play college ball it’s worth understanding these rule changes.
In this post, I want to give my analysis of how these new rules will impact everyone’s favorite position – us goalies.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
A peaceful day kayaking turns into something that could be straight out of a horror movie for a father and daughter in Adams County, Pennsylvania. When you go kayaking you may expect to see some wildlife, but you probably don’t expect to come head to head with a rabid beaver. That’s exactly what happened to a father and daughter spending time on the water in Butler Township. “Get away cause it’s a beaver!” screams Dan Wherley. “Get the f*** away. Get away you mother f*****!” “Half way through, I had to get my phone out cause nobody’s gonna believe this, a beaver biting my kayak!” explained Wherley to FOX43 Thursday afternoon.
U.S. officials have long worried that weaponized drones could be used to hit “soft targets” like sporting events and political rallies, as allegedly happened in Venezuela earlier this month. A Utah-based company, however, gave NBC News an exclusive look at a potential answer to killer drones. Backed by Boeing and other investors, the airspace security company Fortem Technologies is developing a “good” drone called the DroneHunter, and has made sales to the U.S. Department of Defense, major airports and sports stadiums.
