1-4-1 Lacrosse Plays
The Formation and Rotation
One attackman is behind the net, while the other two are on the bottom right and left wings. Attackmen are in the same position as a 2-3-1 formation.
One middie, typically the fastest one, is at the top of the box. This middie will be running a lot, because he must pass and catch the ball from both wing attackmen.
The other two middies are on the crease, and are picking for each other. Good 1-4-1 lacrosse plays always have crease middies setting great picks.
In the diagrams below, you can see the rotation of a 1-4-1 offense.
The easiest 1-4-1 lacrosse play to perform in this offense is the Double Pick.
Almost every other play in this formation involves the crease middies picking for each other, and then cutting to the net.
The double pick starts off with the right wing attackman having the ball. He should try to dodge his man, and cut towards the goal, but if he can’t, then he should go to the top of the box.
He then passes the ball to the top middie, who carries the ball to his left.
At the same time the top middie gets the ball, the left wing attackman should cut to the crease. He will then set a pick for the right crease middie.
Timing must be perfect, because at the same time, the left side crease middie should be setting a pick for the right crease middie.
The right crease middie cuts at the correct time, so that he goes under the two picks that were set for him. At the same time, the player with the ball is cutting to his left, and looks to pass the ball inside.
The middie coming off of the picks should receive the pass just as he gets off the picks. He catches the ball, turns, and fires a shot into the bottom right of the net.
Although this play is simple, it can be deadly if a defense underestimates it. Practice makes perfect for this one, because timing is crucial.

The Lacrosse Coach: 1-4-1 Roll-Off
An ongoing segment The Lacrosse Coach aims to give guidance to young and veteran coaches alike. Whether this is your first season or your 20th you’re sure to take something away to improve your team or tweak a drill you’ve been doing for as long as you can remember.
Below, current Scotland National coach John Kenney provides insight on one way of utilizing the 1-4-1 in an extra man situation. Coach Kenney points out that the formation is one that some teams aren’t prepared to face and that it can disrupt the normal operation of the opponents defense. You’ll also notice that the “roll off” leaves your offense in a 2-3-1 (counting from behind first) at it’s full completion. If the initial look to the cage isn’t there then you are able to run any number of man-up plays from that formation including reseting back into the 1-4-1 and run it again or reset and run the play on the opposite side. It’s important that you remind your players to always keep their sticks to the outside so that they create the most effective passing lanes.
By John Kenney
The 1-4-1 is making a come-back as an offensive set (though some have never abandoned it). At a Midwest clinic years ago — Terry Corcoran remarked — what was considered obsolete is now the offense of the day. This is an easy Extra Man Offense (EMO) from a 1-4-1; It can also be utilized as a zone breaker as many teams are not prepared to face the 1-4-1 set and the slides/rotation of the zone are different.
- A1 attacks goal line extended (GLE) and rolls back.
- A2 rolls off the crease to below GLE.
- A3 moves his defender — high and in the opposite direction of eventual cutting M1.
- M3 seals off the inside lane, occupies space inside and tries to pick off the defender guarding M1.
- A1 passes the ball to A2 who just rolled off the crease.
- M1 cuts to the ball and utilizes M3’s seal.
- A2 receives the pass from A1 and looks to feed M1 for the eventual shot.

Women’s lacrosse plays No. 8 Colby close before Mules pull away
WATERVILLE, Maine — Playing in its first NESCAC game since March 7, 2020, the Bates women’s lacrosse team played No. 8 nationally ranked Colby through a close first half before the host Mules pulled away for an 18-5 victory on Sunday.
Senior captain Summer Dias (Newton, Mass.) led the Bobcats (1-1, 0-1 NESCAC) with two goals and one assist, to go with five draw controls.
Bates trailed Colby (2-1, 1-1 NESCAC) by a 4-1 score halfway through the first half, but junior Jordyn Tveter (Topsfield, Mass.) began a 3-1 Bates run when she scored off of her own draw control with 16:24 left. Tveter led Bates with six draw controls.
Dias scored her second goal at the 13:37 mark, and senior captain Margaret Smith (Wilton, Conn.) tallied after an eight-minute scoreless stretch to close the deficit to 5-4 in Colby’s favor with 5:18 remaining in the half.
The Mules responded with Gianna Bruno feeding Robyn Pirie for a goal, then Grace Toner’s tally with two seconds left in the half gave Colby added breathing room, with a 7-4 lead at the half.
Colby poured it on in the second half. Annie Eddy and Jillian Mazzocca scored in the opening minutes of the period. Dias won the next draw and fed senior captain Kathryn Grennon (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) for what would be Bates’ final score, narrowing the gap to 9-5 with 25:30 remaining in the game. Colby returned the favor as Grace Langmuir scored right after the ensuing draw, and the Mules finished out the game with nine unanswered goals.
Eddy scored five times for Colby, while Bruno added three goals and four assists. Langmuir and Toner also tallied three goals apiece.
Sophomore Cammie Lavoie (Epping, N.H.) was credited with 12 saves in goal for Bates, while Hannah Marino made nine saves for Colby, as the Mules outshot the Bobcats by a 40-23 margin.
Bates returns to action on Saturday, April 24 at Tufts, with a 2pm start. The Bobcats will then host Connecticut College the following day, April 25 at 2pm.

Men’s Lacrosse Plays Road Opener at #15 UMass
ALBANY, N.Y. – After three games at home to start the season, the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team embarks in its first road trip of 2020, starting Tuesday at UMass.
Tuesday, March 3 at UMass (3:00 p.m.)
Live Stats | LSN
Leading the Pack
- Since 2000, UAlbany is 6-14 in road openers
- UAlbany has won six of the last seven meetings with UMass
- UAlbany leads the America East in points and assists per game, and ranks second in goals
- Tehoka Nanticoke and Corey Yunker rank first and second in the America East in points per game, respectively
- UAlbany is one of three teams nationally to not surrender a man-down goal this season
The Minutemen are 3-2 on the early season, having gone 1-1 in two games at home. UMass has already played three ranked teams this season, falling in their opener at then-#16 Army, and defeating then-#12 Ohio State on the road. Most recently, the Minutemen defeated top-ranked Yale at home 13-10. UMass was picked as a narrow favorite in the CAA Preseason Coaches’ Poll, just ahead of Towson, and three Minutemen were named to the Preseason All-CAA team. In the overall series, UMass leads UAlbany 19-10.
Last Time vs. UMass
In its 2019 home opener, the Great Danes fell to UMass by a final score of 14-8 to drop to 1-3 on the season. The Minutemen opened the second half on a four-goal run to take a commanding lead. Ultimately, UMass scored nine of its 14 goals in the second half to become the first road team in 15 tries to defeat UAlbany at home, a streak that dated back to April 4, 2017.
Last Time Out
For the second-straight week, UAlbany outlasted its opponent in Casey Stadium for a one-goal victory. The Great Danes jumped out to a 9-3 lead, and led 10-5 late in the first half before Harvard scored twice in the final 19 seconds of the second quarter to trail by just three at the break. The teams traded goals through the second half, with Harvard ultimately tying the game twice before UAlbany scored the go-ahead goal to clinch yet another one-goal victory to wrap up its three-game homestand 2-1 before embarking in its first road swing of the season.
Around the America East
America East teams went 4-1 in five games on Saturday, the most recent day of competition for member institutions. Stony Brook remains atop the standings as the calendar turns to March, at 4-1 overall. Behind the Seawolves, UMBC, Vermont, and UAlbany are locked in a three-way tie for second, with all three teams 2-1 on the season. UMass Lowell sits alone in fifth at 2-4 overall, followed by Binghamton and Hartford at 1-3 each.
Tuesday’s America East Games
- Manhattan at Hartford, 3:00 p.m.
- Binghamton at Army, 3:00 p.m.
- UAlbany at UMass, 3:00 p.m.
- Towson at UMBC, 6:00 p.m.
- Stony Brook at Sacred Heart, 6:00 p.m.
After his first-ever game in a Great Dane uniform, UAlbany freshman Graydon Hogg was named America East Rookie of the Week. Hogg scored two goals in the season opener against #12 Cornell, while also recording two assists, winning two ground balls, and causing two turnovers.
America East Success
UAlbany is looking for its 10th conference championship. The Great Danes have won three of the past five titles, including two of the past three. UAlbany has a 34-5 regular-season record in the league dating back to the 2013 season, and the Great Danes haven’t lost a regular-season home game to an America East opponent since April 28, 2012 (Stony Brook, 12-11).
Once again, UAlbany features one of the toughest schedules in the country. The 2020 schedule includes five teams ranked in the preseason top-20, including three in the top five, and four in the top-11. Highlighting the schedule are trips to preseason #3 Yale and #4 Maryland, as well as the home opener against preseason #11 Cornell, and, for the first time in history, a home game against preseason #5 Syracuse.
For the first time in eight years, UAlbany was not picked as the favorite in the America East Preseason Coaches’ Poll, landing instead in third behind 2019 runner-up Vermont and champion UMBC, who were picked first and second, respectively. The Great Danes had been picked first in each of the previous seven editions of the preseason poll. This year, UAlbany drew 28 points and one first place vote, narrowly behind favorite Vermont (31 points, two first-place votes), and projected runner-up UMBC (30 points, three first-place votes). Defending regular-season champion Stony Brook was picked fourth, drawing 24 points and the final first-place vote.
Senior attack Jakob Patterson, reigning America East Offensive Player of the Year, was selected as the America East Preseason Player of the Year by Inside Lacrosse. Patterson scored 25 goals and recorded 32 assists in 2019 to lead the team with 57 total points. He was joined as a Preseason All-Conference selection by junior Alex Burgmaster, who scored twice with two assists and 11 ground balls in 12 games for the Great Danes last year.
PLL in Albany
In its inaugural season, Premier Lacrosse League hosted one of its weekends of competition at Casey Stadium on UAlbany’s campus. The league announced on April 22, 2019 that UAlbany would serve as a host site on August 24-25. Among the players in the PLL were a eight former Great Danes, including Miles Thompson, Ty Thompson, Connor Fields, Kyle McClancey, and Blaze Riorden. The first of three games in Albany the Atlas vs. the Chaos, was played in front of a sellout crowd of 6,472 fans, and saw Chaos starts Myles Thompson score twice, Troy Rey, McClancey, and Fields score once, and Riorden record 13 saves.
Great Danes in the NLL
UAlbany is well-represented in the NLL this season:
• Lyle Thompson, Georgia Swarm
• Miles Thompson, Georgia Swarm
• Blaze Riorden, Philadelphia Wings
• Joe Resetarits, Rochester Knighthawks
• Corey Small, Buffalo Bandits
• Dave Brock, New England Black Wolves
• Connor Fields, San Diego Seals
The NLL is the largest professional indoor lacrosse league in
North America, with seven teams in the United States and four in
Canada. UAlbany has been well-represented in the league. At least
one former Great Dane has been chosen in the league’s draft every
year since 2012.
Honoring the Thompsons
Lyle and Miles Thompson, two of the most decorated men’s lacrosse players in University at Albany history, were honored in the “People of New York” exhibit that opened Thursday, February 14, 2019 in the State Capitol building. The exhibit, whose opening was announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, “features the people of New York – past and present – and their firsthand accounts of perseverance and migration.” “The First Peoples” portion of the exhibit includes life-size cutouts of the Thompson brothers, and accompanying text details their achievements for UAlbany. In the images, they’re wearing uniforms of the Georgia Swarm, the National Lacrosse League franchise for which they now play. Born in Onondaga Nation, near Syracuse, N.Y., Lyle and Miles became two of the most celebrated lacrosse players in the world while at UAlbany. Lyle was the first male recipient of the Tewaaraton Award in consecutive seasons, and he set new NCAA Division I records for career points (400) and assists (225). As a senior at UAlbany, Miles was the co-recipient of the Tewaaraton Award with his brother and set a NCAA Division I record for most single season goals (82). They both were drafted by the Swarm, Miles as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NLL Draft and Lyle as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NLL Draft. In 2017, the tandem was instrumental in the Swarm winning its first world championship.
2019 in Review
One year following their historic run to the NCAA Final Four, the Great Danes had to replace all-time players in Connor Fields, who graduated, and TD Ierlan, who transferred to Yale. The Danes’ schedule featured five teams ranked in the top 20, including Maryland, Syracuse, Cornell, UMass, and defending NCAA champion Yale. After tying a program record with 16 victories, the team took a step back, finishing 2019 with a record of 5-9, and exiting the America East Tournament in the semifinal round. Jakob Patterson was named America East Offensive Player of the Year, and led the team with 57 points on 25 goals and 32 assists. Patterson led a total of four Great Danes on the America East First Team, joining Tehoka Nanticoke, Matt Perla, and Jack Burgmaster. On the Second Team, UAlbany landed Sean Eccles and Erik Dluhy.
Since 2009-10, the University at Albany men’s lacrosse program posted an overall record of 104-65. The Great Danes won five America East titles in six years starting in 2013, the year that saw the team take a big leap forward, improving on their 2012 record by a total of seven wins. In two seasons, UAlbany won a program-high 16 games, including a run to the NCAA Final Four in 2018. The Great Danes saw Miles and Lyle Thompson become the first co-recipients of the Tewaarton Trophy in 2014, and Lyle become the first men’s back-to-back winner in 2015. Lyle graduated the program as the NCAA record-holder for career points with 400, scoring 175 goals with 225 assists in his four years. Together, Lyle and Miles hold three of the top four single-season points performances in NCAA history. In addition to the Thompsons, whose careers overlapped with their cousin Ty, Connor Fields, who graduated in 2018, ranks fourth in NCAA history in career points.

November 14. Helsinki. Hartwall Arena.
The defeats of the Russian national team in the two opening matches of the Karjala Cup against Finland (0: 3) and Sweden (2: 4) were sensitive – our team did little. And the only positive moment was a lacrosse goal from 16-year-old striker Matvey Michkov: he became the youngest scorer in an official match of the national team.
The coaching staff of the national team finally abandoned the idea of playing combinations for the youth world championship. In every attacking troika for the match against the Czech Republic there was a player who was not suitable for the youth team in terms of age. Michkov, for example, was left in the top three with Vovchenko and Galimov. And Khusnutdinov, who plays on the flank in SKA, came out in the center of the first link with Voronkov and Rashevsky.
It seems that in the first two matches, the Russian team has accumulated enough anger.The very first majority in the match was realized – Lokomotiv defender Alexander Yelesin snapped super powerfully, swinging from behind his ear.
Michkov played the match with the Czechs no less confidently than the previous one. At least he didn’t stop shooting from a negative angle. Although in this attack a little earlier he could give a pass to a partner who was rolling in a parallel course, but either did not see it, or decided to take over the game.
In the two previous matches, the Russian national team played six times in the majority, but never managed to realize the numerical advantage.In the match with the Czechs, the Russians used the majority for the second in a row – Khusnutdinov shot on a penny, where Voronkov successfully substituted the club.
The third goal was not immediately sorted out not only by the referees, but also by the players themselves – Voronkov looked for the puck for a long time. It turned out that after Michkov’s throw from behind the goal (again!) The puck got stuck in the outfit of the Czech goalkeeper Lukesh and fell into the net. The authorship was first rewritten to Voronkov, but in the end Michkov’s surname appears in the protocol – there is a goal in the second match in a row!
In attack, the Russian team’s play was enjoyable – for the first time in the entire Karjala Cup.The logical result was a beautiful goal from Nikita Tertyshny, to whom 18-year-old Chibrikov passed a pass to an open corner.
It seemed that with the score 4: 0, the Russian national team would calmly bring matters to the first victory in the Eurotour. But after the fourth missed puck, the Czechs perked up. We won back one goal at the end of the second period, and in the third period they could even equalize the score. Thanks to Dmitry Shugaev – the Severstal goalkeeper saved our team several times. It is he who can be called the best player of the team at this stage: there is nothing to reproach Shugaev with in the match lost to the Finns.But I wanted to see a high-level game from the whole team. We enjoyed it only for two periods.
Michkov’s lacrosse goal and Kunlun’s record from Lazushin. Highlights November 13: News: Kontinental Hockey League (KHL)
KHL.ru tells about the most interesting events of the last gaming day.
Miracle goal Michkov
Alas, the Russian national team also lost the second match in the Karjala Cup. But the game against Sweden will still be remembered by the fans for a long time – after all, in it SKA forward Matvey Michkov scored his first goal for the senior national team.And what a puck it was! A lacrosse goal for the national team at 16 is perhaps a more impressive opening goal and is hard to imagine.
Lazushin Sets Kunlun Record
Several bright moments were presented to us by the match between Avangard and Kunlun. Omsk people defeated “Kunlun”, having thrown five unanswered goals into the goal of Alexander Lazushin. But at the same time, Lazushin made 56 saves in his 300th game in the KHL, surpassing the Kunlun club record set in September 2020 by Dmitry Shikin – 52 rescues.
Gritsyuk’s first double in the KHL

The size of the playground is 100 x 55 meters, but in Latvia lacrosse is usually played on football fields with artificial turf.

Matvey Michkov withstands adult hockey – Rossiyskaya Gazeta
The Kontinental Hockey League has hosted the regular championship matches. The central meeting of the game day was the confrontation in Moscow, where the excellent start of the championship “Spartak” was hosted by St. Petersburg SKA.
The match turned out to be “valid”, and the “red-whites” ultimately ruined their own mistakes in defense.At the beginning of the second period, the Spartak players made an unfortunate loss at their goal, and Anton Burdasov took full advantage of this – 1: 0. And at the end of the second dvadtsatiminutki army men from the banks of the Neva again celebrated success – the first removal of “Spartak” in the match turned into a goal by Kirill Marchenko. The score on the scoreboard did not change anymore until the final siren.
Summing up the results of the match at a press conference, SKA head coach Valery Bragin first of all noted the result:
– After the defeat in the last match, it was important for us to please the fans.I will not hide, we really played for the result. And the most important thing is that we managed to win.
How would you rate the game of goalkeeper Lars Johansson, who defended the match “to zero”?
Valery Bragin: He got used to SKA a long time ago. Worked great in the preseason. Now it is reaching its level. Today’s game showed that he is in good shape.
16-year-old Matvey Michkov plays in your first line, and now as the 13th striker comes out, receiving only eight shifts and 5:44 minutes of playing time.What are your plans for this striker?
Valery Bragin : We need to be very careful with him. After each match, we look at his condition. Therefore, he had so much playing time today. But in general, I think Michkov can handle adult hockey. And when I came out today, I played well.
Are you planning to send Michkov to the Major League or Youth League?
Valery Bragin: While we keep him in SKA. He is in our hands, and with him we need to be very careful, competently conducting the training process.Maybe he will play some games in other leagues, but we’ll see.
But CSKA hockey players disappointed their fans, losing to Barys – 3: 6. Note that the fate of the match was decided in the third period, in which the “red-blue” conceded as many as five times.
Despite the defeat, the head coach of the Muscovites Sergei Fedorov found some positive moments in his team’s game:
– I think the team played where there was an opportunity to play “five on five”, in good hockey. The deletions let us down a bit, I don’t know which are good, which are bad, but they were and spoiled the whole game.I am grateful to the guys, because we played on the set for 60 minutes. Our team spent most of the time on the ice with a plus. The championship has just begun, so we will make adjustments on the fly.
An excellent match was played by Metallurg Magnitogorsk, who was able to defeat Avangard Omsk – 7: 4.
The most productive player of the last meeting was the forward of “Magnitogorsk” Nikolay Goldobin, who scored four (1 + 3) points on the “goal plus pass” system.
Ivan Telegin and Peter Tseglarik have scored two points each in Omsk (goal-pole transfer).
Meanwhile, it became known that the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (FHR) is seeking to reduce the period of suspension for striker Evgeny Kuznetsov in order to participate in the Olympic Games to be held in Beijing in 2022.
SKA head coach Valery Bragin is sure that 16-year-old child prodigy Matvey Michkov withstands adult hockey
According to TASS, the player of “Washington” and the Russian national team in August 2019 was suspended for four years for violation of anti-doping rules during the competition period.At the same time, Kuznetsov has the opportunity to play for “Washington” in the NHL, which does not obey the WADA code.
According to the new WADA code, which entered into force on January 1, athletes who were previously disqualified for anti-doping rule violations after traces of drugs (cocaine, heroin, tetrahydrocannabinol and methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy)) were found in their samples, can qualify for a significant reduction in the sentence (up to three months).
