Paul even walks you through it on the commentary:
"I fake the flip to Gary. Gary does a great job of making like he's got the ball. And the goal is left open for a great shot into an empty net."

Or something like that. UKLF will back me up on this one. I used to watch it again and again and again and again. It's Paul Gait's "all time favourite play at SU". I still try it in pretty much EVERY game I play, with varying success rates.


I used to watch this video when I was a kid learning to play, loved it! The Gait brothers also pull off some crazy fake shots into behind the back and around the world passes. I used to try and imitate them in the front yard, never worked out right!

Md vs Duke

Postby 6x6 Tue Mar 23, 2010 2:52 am

Here's one from a couple weeks ago. Go to the Terps TV video on the right of the page. Go to page 3 to pull up the highlights vs Duke from 3/6/10, sorry ya'll that's 6/3/10. The goal in question starts at 1:59 and it ends at 2:34 as they replay it several times. Check out the goalie's position!! btw that was a great game.

Frank Fedorjaka - Head Coach of Bucknell
http://www.bucknellbison.com/sports/m-l ... ank00.html

is an Alumni of Hobart College (University) and played under Dave Urick alongside Jeff Tambroni (Penn State HC)

Hobart won 11 Straight NCAA Div III National Titles and had a Box of Tricks on EMO and Offence, Hidden Ball tricks, fake passes, fake catches etc

Hobart Univ 2004-2006 while a couple of Canadians were there in attack spent the whole season using that EMO play with great success :D

Lacrosse is a Game and should be FUN!

Unfortunately... sometimes Hopkins and the like forget it's a game :twisted:

Nice find 8)

Check out the North Carolina vs Johns Hopkins game on ESPN America last week for FUN Man-Up plays that were executed perfectly :mrgreen:

and UNC beat then No 1 Johns Hopkins

which is always nice - Go Cuse!

Yes, faking needn't be mickey-taking, and that one just allows a moment of freedom in front of goal for a clear feed. With all the big games coming up this weekend, let's hope coaches and captains don't get too tight to allow a little freedom of expression. It's entertainment for the masses.
Dave, linked to that Bucknell clip is the Japan v Australia hidden-ball trick from the '10 WCs with your commentry and explanation.
