I agree with the previous post - this is so good - a reminder of how good lacrosse used to be. The fasted game on two feet? You bet.
The stick technology hadn't yet gone to offset pinched sticks which meant it was a much more even contest between attack and defence. Also, the kits are so pure. A mile away from, and miles better than the current NCAA obsession with having the flashiest kits possible. These guys could play the game - I saw Syracuse play England at Wacs in 1989, and they were awesome.

Great post - the whole game is there on YouTube in 15 minute segments.
