Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

Another bump in the road….

Posted by Barry Marenberg on January 18, 2010

We had another tough game this past Friday vs. Rock Den and unfortunately came out on the losing end by a score of 6-3.  On a positive note, the team received its first goal ever from Cole Herrigel, who has only just started playing lacrosse this Winter.  Cole is proof positive that if you keep working hard on your game, positive things will happen.  Great job Cole.  Keep it up!

A problem I’m seeing in the games is the inability (refusal?) of the players to pass the ball.  This is not how lacrosse is played.  The ball must be moved around the perimeter to allow a middie or attackman to dodge and find an opening to receive a pass for a shot on the goal.   I refer you all to Rule 3 of the “11 Commandments of Lacrosse” which can be accessed from the link at the top of this page. 

I’m confident we can turn things back around and start our winning ways again.   This week’s game is vs. Millburn.  Game time is 5pm on Field 1.  Please have your boys at ISP by 4:30.  Since we are the first game of the evening if the boys get there early we can get some extra time to take the field and loosen up.  Everyone should stay positive and keep their heads up.  We are a good team and this week we will show it.

 See you on the field.
