Lacrosse Is Back!

After this past weekend, it can truthfully said that college lacrosse is back in full swing.

Thank goodness.

Below is going to be one of the year’s best goals and it only happened a few days ago. On Feb 8, Johns Hopkins was playing the Naval Academy when Hopkins pulled off “the ol’ hidden ball trick.”

It’s a thing of beauty.

Johns Hopkins midfielder Joel Tinney fakes a flip to teammate John Crawley for a hidden ball trick that fools enough of the Navy defense to leave the goalie totally unaware and enables Tinney to bomb it into the net from a step outside the box.

For those who think that this was the goalie’s fault, it’s not. The goalie cannot really see if the exchange between the two Hopkins players took place. (The ball is white and in white crosses with white webbing.) It’s up to the defender to call out where the ball is. He didn’t and the resultant 40 yard laser beam goal was the result.

All we can say is “thank goodness lacrosse is back!”
