High School 9:12 bringing lacrosse to the forefront with 16-team tournament
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – High School 9:12 is expanding its sports tournament platform and adding lacrosse to its lineup.
The organization announced on Tuesday that it would put on the Rivalry on the River next month at Episcopal. The field includes 10 boys teams and six girls teams.
All games will be streamed on News4Jax.com and its mobile app. The final four games on Saturday will be televised live on CW17 and broadcast on 1010XL radio.
High School 9:12 made the announcement during its annual all-sports media day.
Coach Jennifer Shields, Piper Young and Kayla Robinson during High School 9:12 media day at the Riverside YMCA.
“You’ve just seen the whole sport over the last decade really transform into one of the best sports in our city,” said Alan Verlander, executive director of High School 9:12.
“Like all of our other events that we do in high school we really want to showcase our best and brightest and so we decided to do that on the boys and girls side this year, which is a first for us.”
The move into lacrosse expands the 9:12 tournament brand even further and provides marquee matchups in regular season games. Some of the state’s best programs play in St. Johns County and those teams headline the first event.
The Ponte Vedra and Bartram Trail girls play at noon on March 27, and the Ponte Vedra and Creekside boys face off in the finale of the event that day. The Sharks boys went 24-1 during the last full lacrosse season in 2019 and won their first ever state championship. They were also the No. 1-ranked team in the country.
“I think it’s great for the growth of the sport,” said Sharks boys coach Tom West. “It’s just great when you don’t have to leave the state or leave the area to play some of the best teams. When the best teams are in the area it’s only going to be better for everybody. Iron sharpens iron. And I think if all these teams are in this area then you’re just going to have all these competitive games and it’s just going to be the best.”
The Baseball Classic at Sans Souci Park just wrapped up its third installment earlier this month. The Fortegra Invitational basketball event last December was also the third. High School 9:12 is also involved with the Bold City Showcase football event, too. The third installment of the Bold City brand scheduled for Aug. 22 was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Tickets for the event are $10 per day or $80 for VIP entry, tickets for all games, as well as food and drinks.
“As THE local station, our team at Channel 4 and CW17 is proud to partner with High School 9:12 in broadcasting these championship caliber events,” said Bob Ellis, general manager of the Graham Media Group in Jacksonville. “We look forward to a great weekend of lacrosse and introducing our community to these talented student-athletes. ”

Syracuse men’s lacrosse vs. Georgetown: A rivalry missed
If you’re a Syracuse fan of a certain age, you remember it well.
The rivalry. The hatred. The fights, both physical and verbal. The blood spilled and, more recently, the teeth lost.
Alright, so that was actually based on the much more famously intense men’s basketball rivalry between Syracuse and Georgetown, but it could have one day applied to the lacrosse field, as well.
The Syracuse Orange and Georgetown Hoyas were still in the burgeoning stages of their lacrosse series back in 2013 when it all got shut down thanks to SU’s departure from the Big East for the greener pastures of the ACC.
At that time, the Orange and Hoyas had played every season from 1995-2013; 22 games over the course of 19 seasons, with the Orange holding a 17-5 advantage. Even in a lopsided series, they were building the foundation for a rivalry to join the likes of their men’s basketball counterparts.
But these things take time. They didn’t have the advantage of the formation of the Big East to light a fire like men’s basketball did. They didn’t play a series of epic championship games to kick-start the rivalry like men’s lacrosse did with Johns Hopkins. They were doing it the old fashioned way: by building it up over time.
And it was working. In the first nine games of the series that spanned 1995-2001, the average margin of victory between the teams was 5.4 goals per game. Not one final score got closer than three goals. In the final 13 games from 2002-2013, the margin of victory got more than cut in half down to 2.2 goals per game. 11 of the 13 games were decided by three or fewer goals, with five one-goal games and two decided in OT. The intensity and closeness was picking up major steam, and the Big East lacrosse conference was even formed in 2010 to add a little extra to the mix.
And then, the decision makers showed that they had other priorities in mind. SU left for the ACC, and with that move the Syracuse-Georgetown series was extinguished in men’s lacrosse.
Until Sunday’s selection show, that is.
The bracket revealed Syracuse and No. 5-seeded Georgetown to be first round opponents for a 7:30 Saturday night, primetime battle in College Park, Md.
It’s a fantastic setup for the first game in the series since 2013. I mean, what better way to rekindle the matchup than in the NCAA tournament?
They’ve done it before; three times to be exact. Syracuse has won all three prior postseason meeting between the teams in 1999, 2000 and 2004, respectively. It won’t be so easy this time.
This Georgetown team went 12-2 and won the Big East tournament for the third time in a row. Yes, they played an easier schedule than SU to get there, but the bottom line is this team is talented on offense, and tough on defense. Like it or not, fair or not, the Orange are underdogs coming into this game.
The objective this Saturday has nothing to do with the Syracuse-Georgetown rivalry born on the basketball court. It’s simply to win; win and advance. The Hoyas just happen to be the team standing in the way of that. For the guys taking the field this Saturday, the opponent will mean little. Most of them were in middle school back when these schools last met in 2013 anyway.
But what we have here this weekend is two teams with the exact same goal, and only one with the ability to accomplish it. Beat the other.
A postseason meeting with the season on the line might be the ticket to lighting that fire once more. It might just be the thing we need to be reminded of what Syracuse vs. Georgetown can mean, of what it can be.
It’s 11:25, and…
Syracuse, 5-seed Georgetown lacrosse look to renew rivalry in NCAA Tournament
Back in February, if you said that the Orange would be an unseeded team in the NCAA Tournament, not many people would’ve believed you. SU was ranked in a tie for second in the preseason USILA poll, and a Final Four run felt like an expectation.
Things didn’t quite go according to plan. Syracuse started hot with a 4-1 record, but cooled off in a major way down the stretch, going 3-4 the rest of the regular season. Double digit losses to North Carolina and Notre Dame put some serious question marks on SU’s chances.
All of that gets thrown out the door come tournament time. Rankings and seedings aside, the Orange just need to beat whoever’s in front of them. That all starts with 5th-seeded Georgetown.
The Orange are tourney bound!

— WAER Sports (@WAERSports) May 10, 2021
It’s been quite a while since these two teams last played. In fact, you’d have to go all the way back to 2013, to the days of SU and the Big East. Syracuse pulled out a 9-8 win in that one, and went on to finish as runner-up in the national championship. The ‘Cuse hasn’t been back to the title game since.
Changing that starts on Saturday at 7:30 pm, when the Orange and the Hoyas face off at Capital One Field in Maryland.
Georgetown finished their regular season with a 12-2 record and claimed the Big East Championship. The Hoyas are led by attackman Jake Carraway, midfielder Graham Bundy Jr., and Owen McElroy between the pipes. They had 5 players named to the all-Big East team this year. The point being, this team is very good up and down the field. There’s very few holes on their roster, if any at all.
Carraway is 3rd in the nation in goals with 46, and the Orange have struggled against goalscorers like Duke’s Michael Sowers, Notre Dame’s Pat Kavangh, and Robert Morris’ Ryan Smith. Carraway could wreak havoc if the Orange don’t pay special attention to him.
Syracuse goalie Drake Porter, the man tasked with stopping the shots Carraway will inevitably create, had high praise for the attackman, calling him, “Super talented. He’s a really strong, athletic dodger. … [He] goes hard to the net and when he wants to score he’s going to try and do everything in his power to score.”
The man who’s been feeding Carraway the ball all year, attackman TJ Haley, is also having an incredible season. The freshman leads the nation in assists with 3.62 per game, and the two players benefit off of each other’s respective abilities, filling up the stat sheet in the process.
On the back end, goalie Owen McElroy is also having a fantastic season in his own right. He’s the only netminder in Division I lacrosse with a save percentage of over 60%, and is second in the country in goals against, only allowing 7.97 a game.
Dominating wins over teams like St. John’s, Mount St. Mary’s, and Providence might give off the impression that the Hoyas had a weak schedule, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Georgetown ranked 7th in the country in RPI, a metric that ranks teams based upon its wins and losses against its strength of schedule. For comparison, Syracuse, whose schedule was full of teams like Notre Dame, North Carolina, and Duke, ranked 5th. The Hoyas beat good teams, and they did so convincingly.
So what does Syracuse need to do to come out on top against a good team like Georgetown? Head coach John Desko made two main points: stop Jake Carraway and win faceoffs. He acknowledged Georgetown’s ability in all aspects of the game, but focused on Carraway, saying, “We’ve got to be aware of [Jake Carraway] and we’ve got to be able to help when we see needed.”
Desko also went on to add, “If you look at the faceoff statistics, we’ve had to play, in our losses, an awful lot of defense.” Playing a lot of defense has translated to losses for the Orange. When SU wins more than half of their faceoffs, they’re 6-1. When they don’t, they’re just 1-4. Winning faceoffs has meant winning games for them this year.
It’s going to take a complete game from the Orange to advance, but Desko believes that the team can do it, “We want this to be our next game, not our last game.”
Coverage starts with an hour-long edition of Countdown to Faceoff starting at 6:30 p.m., with game time set for 7:30.
The historic rivalry between Northwestern lacrosse and Maryland
Kelsey Carroll/The Daily Northwestern
Graduate student attacker Lindsey McKone runs down field. McKone has played for Northwestern for five years, recording four wins against Maryland during her career.
It was raining when Northwestern won its first Big Ten Tournament title in program history in May 2019. Fans wore ponchos and even the trophy was protected under an umbrella.
However, the weather didn’t stop the Wildcats from playing their hardest. NU dominated the entire game against Maryland, leading 10-4 at halftime and en route to a 16-11 victory.
Beyond the trophy, the dismal weather and the history made, another part of the game stood out to the Cats: the win came over Maryland.
“This awesome energy we brought on the field that day completely blew them out of the water,” graduate student attacker Lindsey McKone told The Daily about the game. “We just clicked and we knew that all the hard work and all the adversity that we’d gone through as a team led us to that moment.”
Over the past two decades, the Maryland-Northwestern rivalry has emerged as one of the most contested in women’s college lacrosse, both on the national and conference levels. NU has won seven of the last 15 NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championships, while the Terrapins have won five. Since the founding of Big Ten women’s lacrosse in 2015, Maryland has won three Big Ten Tournament titles to the Cats’ two.
In 2021, NU achieved their first win streak over Maryland since defeating them back-to-back in 2011 and 2012.
“If you said a few years ago that we were going to beat Maryland three times in one season, a lot of fans, a lot of people would laugh,” coach Kelly Amonte Hiller said.
And the Cats did not just defeat the Terrapins three times this season — they also did so by decisive margins. NU overtook Maryland by double digits in both of their matchups in March. The teams played a narrower game during the Big Ten Tournament, but NU still won by five goals.
Amonte Hiller credited previous teams with laying the foundation for consecutive wins against Maryland. Building up the team’s culture over several seasons, she said, helped them get to this point and this year’s players have been the beneficiaries of seasons of hard work.
“It’s exciting for the alumni to know they’ve had a part in getting us back to this point,” Amonte Hiller said.
McKone said in previous years the Cats focused on their opponents when preparing for games. This season, the team has looked internally to stay calm ahead of crucial matchups.
“In the past, we’ve always hyped up the games against them because it is a rivalry game,” McKone said. “This year, we stayed even-keeled and knew if we played our best lacrosse we would be able to win. It’s hard to beat anyone three times, so beating a team like Maryland three times in a season is great.”
Junior attacker Izzy Scane played a key part in all three of NU’s wins over Maryland this season, scoring a combined 14 goals during the programs’ pair of games in March and nine more goals when they met in Sunday’s Big Ten Tournament title game. She said winning against the Terrapins is “so much more fun” than typical games since the team’s coaching staff and the players are so talented and the matchups are so competitive.
Amonte Hiller agreed with the sentiment, saying the best part of the rivalry is how the programs bring out the best in each other.
“Despite a win or loss, the competition is great,” Amonte Hiller said. “You know it’s going to be a highly contested game and a lot of emotion and focus on the line. Anytime you get to play a really great opponent, it helps you get better. And regardless of winning or losing, to have the opportunity is a gift.”

After splitting the two regular season series, the Rangers and Scots will battle with Highland Park aiming for its first title since 2015 and Jesuit targeting its third championship in the last five seasons.
Path to the Championship
No. 2 Jesuit Dallas
First Round – def. No. 7 Lake Travis, 5-3
State Semifinal – def. No. 3 ESD, 9-3
No. 1 Highland Park
First Round – def. No. 8 Allen, 18-0

Rangers Bounce Eagles for State Title Berth: Jesuit Dallas dominated Episcopal School of Dallas from the opening whistle and earned its way into the Texas High School Lacrosse League (THSLL) State Championship game with a 9-3 victory over the Eagles on Saturday. Similar to the first matchup between the Rangers and Eagles, Jesuit’s defense continued to be an unrelenting force as junior goalkeeper Connor Knight racked up nine saves on the day. Offensively, sophomore Cameron Martin led the way with four goals on the day, including a hat trick in the first quarter. Senior Curran Rose and junior McAllister Hobbs scored two goals each while senior Connor Legg added Jesuit’s final goal of the contest. The Ranger face-off unit, led by senior Henry Suarez, went 14-of-15 from the face-off “x”, and the fast-paced Jesuit offense recorded assists on eight of their nine goals.
Scots Survive The Woodlands to Reach State Final: Thomas Mencke scored three goals, including a critical insurance tally late in the fourth to help Highland Park upend upset-driven The Woodlands, 7-4, on Saturday. George Wright scored two goals for the Scots, while Alex Kashata and Sam Wheeler scored to complete the scoresheet.
Jesuit Defense Hitting its Stride in Postseason: The Rangers enter Sunday’s contest on an eight-game winning streak, as the powerful and unrelenting Ranger offensive unit has been complimented by a smothering defense that has frustrated opponents over the past two months. Since Jesuit’s 10-2 win over Trinity (Ky.) on Mar. 15, Jesuit has allowed five or fewer goals in six of eight games while building a +56 goal differential (89-33) over the same stretch. In its last three games,
A Look Back – Scots Turn Tide on Rangers in Postell Stadium: In the first matchup against the two teams on Mar. 11 at Postell Stadium, seniors Caiden Vlasimsky and Sam Teachout recorded hat tricks, but four third quarter goals by Highland Park was enough to push the Scots past the Rangers, 11-9. The Scots’ high powered offense took 34 shots in the game, 26 of which were on target, and a five-goal run flipped a 5-2 Jesuit lead to a 7-5 Highland Park advantage. The Rangers rallied down three in the fourth quarter and cut the lead to one with 5:19 remaining, but a critical insurance goal by Virginia commit Thomas Mencke put the Scots up by two with 3:15 left. Junior Connor Knight recorded a season-best 15 saves in the loss.
The Last Time They Met…Jesuit scored seven unanswered goals between the 4:18 mark of the third quarter and the end of the April 16 showdown between the two rivals at Highlander Stadium, upending the Scots, 12-7. Senior Curran Rose scored five goals, junior McAllister Hobbs, sophomore Cameron Martin and Vlasimsky picked up two tallies apiece and senior Connor Legg added a goal for the Rangers. Senior Henry Suarez was a massive factor in the game, winning 16-of-22 faceoffs and keeping the turf tilted in favor of Jesuit Dallas during its massive run. Knight added nine saves in cage, and the Rangers secured 25 ground balls in comparison to nine recorded by the Scots.
Recent Series History: Since 2016, Highland Park holds a 5-3 advantage over the Rangers, but two of Jesuit’s three victories have come in the postseason. The 2016 win was a 9-4 victory for the Rangers in the THSLL Division I State Championship game, a win that gave Jesuit its first state title in program history. That game saw former Ranger and current Rutgers Scarlet Knight David Sprock ’18 and Garrett Munck ’16, who would go on to play at Skidmore, each score a hat trick as Jesuit broke away from the Scots with a four-goal run that started midway through the third quarter. In 2017, Jesuit defeated Highland Park in the State Semifinal, 8-4, behind the power of three goals by Jack Tabor ’18, two goals from Sprock, and tallies from Sewanee’s Daniel Burnum ’17, Rollins College’s Peter Buell ’19 and Grayson Hassell ’19, who is currently at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Additional Notes: Jesuit Dallas would capture its third state championship with a victory on Sunday, while Highland Park is looking for its seventh championship in the THSLL’s top classification…Sunday marks Jesuit’s fifth state title appearance under the leadership of head coach Chris Surran….The championship game will feature a slew of college-bound talent as Jesuit Dallas has seven college commits on the team (Mason Chandler – Amherst, Alex Chen – High Point, Tilt Fernandes – Washington & Lee, Henry Suarez – St. Joseph’s, Sam Teachout – Johns Hopkins, Caiden Vlasimsky – St. John’s, Rob Williamson – Amherst) and Highland Park saw four student-athletes (Anthony Ghobriel – Navy, Jake Jent – Lafayette, Thomas Mencke – Virginia, Brooks Bond—Delaware) sign in February.

90,000 Betting on lacrosse: about the nuances of this sport and the proposals of Russian bookmakers
A little about the rules and history
Lacrosse is a game invented by the indigenous people of America, Indians in the distant 15th century. Even then, it was popular throughout the continent, in the lands of modern Canada and the United States. It’s safe to say that lacrosse is the national sport of North America.
Lacrosse is a bit like field hockey. In it, two teams of 6-10 people hammer the ball into each other’s goal with a stick. Actually, that’s why the game is called “la crosse”, that is, “club”. An interesting feature is that the game is judged by three referees at once, which inspires more confidence than the sometimes biased referee in football.
As much as Americans and Canadians loved their game, they never managed to get it rooted in the Olympic program. In the entire history of this sports competition, only two matches were played in this sport – in 1904 and 1908.By the way, the Canadian team won the gold medal both times. After an unsuccessful start, lacrosse was included in the Olympics program outside the competition, but only as an entertainment performance.
However, this did not stop the International Federation World Lacrosse from organizing championships around the world. And today we can not only watch the competitions of the best lacrosse leagues, but also place bets on the winners with the largest bookmakers.
Lacrosse has become no stranger to Russia.The national team made its debut in the championship in 2014, finishing in 32nd place. As for earlier successes, in 2018 the team dropped four positions, having received the 36th place in the standings.
Types of bets on lacrosse
As in any sport, betting on lacrosse implies both the prediction of the possible outcomes of the match and more exotic bets.
Outcomes . The simplest and most common type of bet. Depending on the office, there are several types of standard outcomes.Some do not accept bets on a draw, you can only bet on the fact that the first or second team will win. Such bets are called two-way bets. But in three-way bets on the outcome, the bettor can choose between a draw, the victory of the first team or the second. Such rates can be found at large-scale meetings.
Handicap . Handicap bets are also accepted only on matches in major championships. You can hedge your team by adding a handicap of a couple of points, or take away a few from the favorite.As a rule, such bets go better if one team is far behind the other in terms of level.
Outcomes of periods . This is the same type of bet on the outcome, only the bettor predicts the final score not of the game, but of a separate half. It is worth noting that there are four of them in lacrosse, each lasting 15 minutes. The variant of the outcome of each of them is standard – a victory of the first or second team and a draw.
Total . A total bet means a bet on the total number of goals scored.In top-level matches, up to 30 goals can be scored. For example, in 2018 in the Major League, the total goals averaged 25-27 goals, and 20 goals in the youth league. At the world championships, there is no clear figure for the totals, sometimes teams score fifteen goals, and sometimes they barely reach seven. This spread is due to the different levels of training of the teams. You can bet on the total of the match as a whole or on a separate period.
Long-term rates . Some bookmakers provide an opportunity to bet on championship outcomes in advance.Compared to other sports, this is relatively easy to do in lacrosse. After all, in general, the teams of the USA and Canada receive more victories. The Americans show stronger results, at the same 2018 championship they managed to get 11 out of 13 victories. But in the MLL and NCAA matches, it is more difficult to predict the winner, which means that the intensity of passions is higher.
Features of betting on lacrosse
Lacrosse is a sport in which unexpected outcomes rarely occur. The competition often takes place between favorites and teams of a weak level, so it is clear in advance who will win.Bookmakers are also not happy with high odds, they have a special desire to give out winnings to everyone who guessed the winner in the obvious favorite-outsider pair. However, you can make good money on handicap bets.
With this sad picture, you shouldn’t think that lacrosse betting is simple and straightforward. There are a number of things to consider:
Frequent replacements. In lacrosse, there can often be 8 substitutions per game. It is important to analyze the entire line, not just the main line-up.You need to understand if the team can bring you a win, given the frequent changes.
Team experience. Undoubtedly, this is the most important aspect that affects the victory of the team. Pay attention to how the team behaves on the field, how the match is going. Explore the line-up, players’ experience, and their special ways of playing. Compare teams with each other, analyze their advantages and disadvantages. This is especially important in lacrosse, because players get penalty minutes more often than usual, so it is difficult for a team to cooperate and work together with frequent substitutions.
Trainer. Coach training can have a big impact on a team’s performance. The coach and the experience of the team are interdependent things. The coach forms the tactics of the game, trains the players. This is very important, so it is worth paying attention to who is the coach of the team.
Weather. If you just saw a pair for the upcoming match, in addition to analyzing the teams, take into account the site where the match will take place. Indeed, on an open area, rain can cause the team to lose. According to statistics, the number of totals decreases in bad weather.
How to bet on lacrosse: important factors
Perhaps the most important factor when choosing a bet is the team. As mentioned earlier, lacrosse is notable for frequent replacements. Therefore, know what kind of squad the league has, be prepared for the fact that the main players of the match may differ from the declared ones. The outcome of the game depends on the skill of the team.
Better will not hurt to study the statistics of time offsets, as well as understand how numerical advantage works.
Also don’t forget about the many types of lacrosse.Each variation may have different rules, this is also important when analyzing what is happening on the field.
Keep track of the players’ preparation, their experience, the results of past competitions. Analyze statistics, team rivalries, player changes.
There are several resources on the Internet to help you with this:
- ilacrosse.com – International Lacrosse Federation. Here you can find information about upcoming tournaments, statistics of past meetings, team ratings and all the news about this sport.
- uslacrosse.org – USA Lacrosse Federation. There is also a lot of useful information. Basically, this resource focuses on events taking place in North America.

Which bookmakers should bet on lacrosse
This sport is not particularly popular among bettors in Russia.Despite this, there are bookmakers that offer a fairly extensive line of bets on lacrosse.
The most famous among them is 1xBet. This bookmaker has a good playoff line for MLL, the largest lacrosse tournament. The odds on the bets are around 1.85 and the bookmaker’s margin is 8%.
It is not often possible to see offers for bets on international and youth tournaments at the equally popular Fonbet, Winline, Leon, Olympus, League of Betting.
Alas, low odds and high margin are unlikely to give the bettor money on lacrosse betting.However, this sport is only gaining popularity, both in Russia and around the world. Lacrosse speakers, Americans and Canadians, are pushing for the sport to be included in the Olympics.
Who knows, perhaps lacrosse will show itself. Therefore, it does not hurt to understand its features, study statistics and try your luck in betting.

Netanya: World Lacrosse Championship
2000 athletes from 50 countries and fans from all over the world will gather in Netanya in the summer of 2018.The city will host the World Lacrosse Championship
It was officially announced last week that the World Lacrosse Championship will be held in Netanya. Netanya Mayor Miriam Fayerberg-Ikar thanked Scott Nice, Chairman of the Israel Lacrosse Association and David Lesday, General Director of the Association, and noted that “Netanya has once again confirmed its title of the sports capital, where prestigious international competitions are successfully held.”
David Lesday, CEO of the Israel Lacrosse Association: “Our goal is not only for this sport to enter every Israeli home, but for Israel to enter millions of homes around the world.”
Deputy Mayor and Acting Mayor Shiri’s lawyer Hagel-Saadon, city council deputy responsible for sports and tourism Boris Tsirulnik, mayor’s general director Avi Ben-Hamo and head of the sports department Moti Shaibi were also present at the ceremony.
It is expected that about 2,000 athletes from 50 participating countries and more than 5,000 fans of this sport from all over the world will come to Netanya to participate in the championship. The competition itself will be held at the city stadium for ten days in July.
Israel will be the first non-English speaking country to host the lacrosse championship. The choice is due to the success of our country in the international arena. The Israeli national team finished second at the 2016 European Championships and seventh at the 2014 World Championships. In addition, in Israel, this sport is developing very dynamically: there are already 18 clubs in which hundreds of athletes are engaged.
According to Wikipedia, the game was invented by the American Indians, who used it to train warriors and peacefully resolve conflicts between tribes.According to archaeological research, the prototype of lacrosse was known in the territory of modern Canada as early as the beginning of the 15th century. Teams at that time often consisted of several hundred people, and the length of the field for the game ranged from several hundred meters to several kilometers.
European settlers got acquainted with this game in the 17th century, and by the beginning of the 19th century it began to gain popularity among the French population of Canada. The first official lacrosse match took place in Canada in 1867.
Lacrosse was twice included in the program of the Summer Olympics – in 1904 and 1908, and was also an exhibition sport at the 1928, 1932 and 1948 Olympics.
The game involves two teams that try to hit the opponent’s goal with a rubber ball (62.8—64.77 mm., 140—147) using a special stick called a stick. A net is attached to the top of the club, called the head, so that the player can catch and hold the ball in it. The main goal of the game for the attackers is to throw the ball into the opponent’s goal.

90,000 Russia lost the first match at the MFM.This is annoying, because ahead of Canada and the United States – ovechkin and gray hair – Blogs
And they played very strong against each other.
We talked about this in the podcast, but it is worth emphasizing once again – at MFM-2020 we have the most difficult group in history. In one brigade there are four teams from the classic top-6: Canada, USA, Czech Republic and Russia. The key consequence of this draw is that the points in this group are noticeably more important than usual.
Usually we could start the championship with a strange defeat, lose points with other favorites, and still hoped that we would easily leave the group.This year, this is fraught with the fact that we will depend on one match with the Germans.
The bad news is this is a pretty realistic scenario for us so far. To get rid of these problems immediately, it was necessary to start with a victory over the Czechs – but we opened the match with a score of 0: 2, then we won back twice, but in the end we got 3: 4.
No disaster, but now imagine the cost of at least the next game with the Canadians. Exactly.
Counterattack stumbled upon super counterattack
Turn on the TV, open the Internet – they will shower you with cliches: “it was youth hockey”, “did you expect anything else from the MFM?”.
The match really turned out to be strange – and here’s why. Russia, one of the most counterattacking teams in the world, stumbled upon the Czech Republic, the most counterattacking team in the world, and got a little lost in the multi-layered task. Bragin copes easier with matches where you need to play as simply as possible – endure in your own zone, find random bounces in someone else’s. The Czechs from the first minutes five of them rolled back to their blue line and gave us both the puck and space. In this format – plus under the pressure of the sensations from the opening match – ours got a little lost.
It’s important here: we didn’t play badly. In general, from the point of view of pure hockey, we did a lot of great things; our squad is objectively better than that of the Czechs and we could well have won this match. Emotions, eyes, no questions – as usual. But what we are playing today, in the first two periods, no one understood – and when in the third the Czechs put us in front of the need to break into their zone with positional attacks, we could not do anything; I will repeat it for the hundred thousandth time – because the Russian national team has not been able to play in positional attacks for many years.
Askarov failed the game
This point would have been much lower in case of victory, but we lost – it seems exactly because our most talented goalkeeper after Vasilevsky (as they say) missed about all the shots that flew into the target of his goal. Perhaps the throws were really cool – but at the end of the second period there was a persistent feeling: everything that will fly into our goal will be behind the goalkeeper’s back.
This is a very dumb feeling when you expect to win.As a result, our defenders and Vasily Podkolzin tripled their efforts to block shots – but it was too late. And Askarov himself was changed in the second break – this was almost certainly his last match in the tournament, because we really want to win next.
But lost because there were too many deletions
It was a completely real nightmare performed by both sides – sending off, sending off, sending off, sending off – but in the second half of the match we seized the initiative in this stupid competition and organized three 5-on-3 episodes for the Czechs, two of them – one and a half minutes.There were no controversial deletions; I don’t even remember the last time Bragin’s team lost due to discipline.
I would like to get some benefit from this story as quickly as possible – by the next match.
We already have two top-level links
You can look at it like this – today Denisenko is hiding somewhere. It’s true: our best player, in theory, played no match. But I would talk about this – I hope Denisenko will add – what kind of beauties we play below.
Here is the ranking of the links from the first game:
4. Troika Rtischev – Sorokin – Groshev
3. Troika Denisenko – Khovanov – Dorofeev
then a ton of chocolate
2.Trika Marchenko – Morozov – Podkolzin
1. And the absolute winner: the link Sokolov – Voronkov – Aleksandrov
A little more about the latter: they have a very unusual format at the same time as a power and playing link. They are all three and large, and they see the court, and understand the game (Voronkov’s pass to Zamula’s goal), and want to score.It is too early to analyze anything there – especially on the lost match – but the guys are quite lively and awesome. It won’t be easy for Canadians / Americans with them.
The main character – Yegor Zamula
This point would be higher in case of victory. For the whole year we thought that the best defender of this generation was Alexander Romanov, and then a guy from the Canadian junior league came and made us a show. Calm and confident modern hockey: connections at a wide stride and long arms, passes of any length and complexity, strokes, pauses and throws according to the situation.
This guy essentially single-handedly kept us in the game – and nevertheless grabbed the sending-off towards the end, but still remained the best player in the opening match from our side.
The coaching staff also failed the game
Someday we will analyze an episode with a timeout, in which Igor Larionov and Valery Bragin simultaneously held on to the tablet and in two voices explained to the players the layouts for the last 50 seconds, but for now I will just note – this is not a symptom.Such things are always done by someone alone with prompts – and if the headquarters did not agree on this in advance, then it is not surprising that we lost.
The coaches did not figure out how to hack the Czech bus in as many as twenty minutes, did nothing with the missing first link (in which we have the main creative units), kept Askarov on the ice enough for him to completely ruin the evening for himself (and for us).
And I still don’t understand why, a month before the tournament, such a superstar as Igor Larionov – who obviously will not remain just the second coach and Bragin’s assistant – should be brought into the headquarters.I hope this is part of some big plan and the day after tomorrow we will see a completely different work on the bench.
And we continue
The organizers of the event, of course, are handsome – all past years at the MFM they played gradually, smoothly, all day: the first match began at 12:00, the second at 14:00, and so on. It was possible to see everything without problems. Now – walk on your ears, look in two screens, your problems: the games start in two at 17:00 and at 21:00. This is, of course, a setup.
In general – hurray, MCHM has begun, subscribe to my channel, to the rest of the events.
On the first day, all the tops of the tournament played, and among themselves – and it turned out to be such a battle of styles.
Hockey of the past. Czech Republic – Russia
Stamped youth hockey, in which teams fight not so much with an opponent, but with their own nerves, complexes and other psychology. When a match is such a set of random events: scored after an opponent’s mistake, made a mistake myself, then caught another mistake, then made a mistake again. Or not mistakes – but someone’s heroism.
The problem for our team is that they allowed themselves to be drawn into such a swing in the first two periods – and conceded four. That is, the match is over – and it is obvious to everyone that we are stronger, and we have Podkolzin, but now what difference does it make?
Hockey of the present. Sweden – Finland
In modern times, it is already nowhere without Svechnikov’s goal, of course. But in general – a strict, dry and some kind of even too tactical match. The Swedes wanted to win by control, the Finns knew that their chances were in special brigades and flying counterattacks; at the adult level, the match Sweden – Finland has long turned into this kind of chess, the disease is progressing to the youth level.
And the ending is classic, so that no one can find fault, with a goal a few seconds before the siren.
If anything, this is the 49th victory in a row for the Swedes in the MFM group stage – and the game with the Finns was the most difficult. It looks like there will be 52 wins in the end.
Hockey of the future. Canada – USA
Pure competition in speed and super speed thinking. The Americans first lifted the pace to the limit values, and then the Canadians in the second period came to their senses and accelerated beyond reason.Great hockey, which only the two of them can play and know how – when Finns, Swedes or Russia are paired with someone from the USA / Canada, everything looks completely different.
Usually, the ratings of the national teams appear in this place, but so far it is clearly not up to them – you need to think and understand what is happening. So today is something different!
Top 6 impressions of the day
6. Injury of Jakub Lauco
At the 53rd second of the match with Russia, the striker of the Czech national team collapsed on the ice – in the first break he was shown behind the side, disguised, sad, with a fixed knee.Whenever this happens – and this happens quite often at the MFM – it makes it uncomfortable. And it doesn’t matter who it happened to: just imagine, a guy came to one of the most important tournaments in his life, didn’t even play a couple of shifts – and flew out. Health and return to the game.

5. Kazakh passion
I hooked some seconds of the Switzerland – Kazakhstan match, but during this time our neighbors managed to desperately spread their fives on their dime (the Swiss played great) and beautifully put the puck into the far corner with the hands of striker Maxim Musorov.This is youth hockey of the best examples. Passion! Not endless deletions.
The Kazakhs, in fact, have an excellent situation – there are only two top teams in the group and there is a chance to fight not only for survival, but even for the playoffs; and these chances are still not lost. Come on guys, we are with you.
4. Swedish style
Who is talking about what, and crummy about the bath. Against the background of our third period, in which the national team was unable to organize about a single decent positional attack, the Swedes looked like kings.They supposedly started the game with the Finns not with a throw-in, but immediately with a positional attack. As if everyone had agreed in advance that this would be the case – the judges, the audience and the Finns themselves agreed: well, yes, where to go.
While this Swedish lineup looks a bit boring (outside of lacrosse at least), their loyalty to their beliefs is breathtaking.
3. Nico Dawes, goalkeeper, Canada
About the Canadians goalkeepers before the tournament (and the last few years) they said only bad things – therefore, the calm guy who wielded a trap lightly and cheerfully put a pancake under the heavy throws of the Americans was very surprised.In the manner of play and behavior of Dawes one can feel such a great challenge – “well, yes, I am not Vasilevsky, but I can do something.”
2. Larionov vs. Bragin and the timeout of the Russian national team
They commanded the players, holding one tablet together.
