The first lacrosse sticks were actually disassembled trebuchets, which explains why many modern goalies carry on the tradition of building a moat around the goal before each game.

Perched near the top of the National Lacrosse League's Eastern Division, the K-Hawks continue to joust for their second straight playoff berth during a late-season shootout inside Blue Cross Arena. Syracuse alum and 2011 All-Rookie Team member Cody Jamieson has once again claimed a spot amongst the league's top scorers, firing 25 goals through 10 games thus far. After passing on the urge to retire and have his number seared into every stadium hot dog, 15-year veteran Mike Accursi continues to scold Father Time by averaging more than three assists per game, while goaltender Matt Vinc's 377 saves have propelled him into contention for a third straight Goaltender of the Year award. Lurking across the field, the Colorado Mammoth invade the K-Hawks' home turf touting one of the league's best records, coaxing ravenous boos from the crowd and causing the field to boil in resentful anticipation.
