in a real game almost all of these never work. Defensemen now play behind net in most scenarios. The backhand "shuvel" would never work in a real game. Sorry to break it to you

I've seen all of these work in college and mll games. The defender does normally go behind the cage but the moves still work at least I've seen them. Although most of the moves are done a bit further out from the goal he was REALLY close.

Has no one seen a high fake into a shot close to the cage? An inside roll after your defensemen took one step too many? The last one I've only seen in ncaa/mll games. I would never try it unless I wanted to get thrown off the field if I missed lol.

true...the biggest fact is that if that attackmen picks a side by tht time there is goin to be a across cage slide to lay him out...this would only work for really bad almost retarded defensmen

In "real game scenarios" they work you just have to be fast and clean at these dodges and if defense men are behind the net use a pick to be free and only have one D pole in front of the net WHAT BERGER was talking about

by watching this video i feel as if my skill level in lacrosse just went down a few levels...it would be better if you had a left and a right hand instead of just having two right ones

In option 1, this would probably never work. If you did manage to fake your defender that much then another defender would slide over and pick you up. and in option 2 i would switch hands when i rolled back around

As a Defenseive player(and a mediocre one at that)

I gotta say... none of this matters because im gonna play you behind the cage. Also, no one commits that hard on one step, unless they are awful. The way the guy on D is told to commit like that is way over the top. If you get beat on the second or third one,that's pretty weak too.

D men do commit in option 2 because they just lost their position and are sprinting back to stop their man

It really isn't practical... But when the opportunity arises(And for most attackmen it might once...) do it.

If you got that opportunity, how sad would it be if you couldn't take it?

sometimes defensmen get confused off picks and may have trouble switching or staying so when the attackmen can play cat and mouse w the defensemen and use this move

First one works great if the attackman looks to pass instead of shoot, because there's def going to be a slide moving on him...just look to the open man for a quick stick.

As an attackman Ive used that inside roll move countless times. Happens all the time in college. If the attackman pushes like that from behind the cage, he can either look for a backdoor cut from the wing attackman (because the adjacent defender is contemplating a slide), or do the inside roll... but you have to do it pretty quick or you'll be sittin' on the ground.

The shovel move is ridiculous. Desperation move. Its basically the same thing as the first move, only he reversed the direction and didnt switch hands.

is so stupid...why wouldnt he just come around the goal with his stick in his left hand as oppose to doing that backhand shot, and also on that inside role the stick should be in his left

Shovel

If I actually ever saw someone do that, my first reaction would probably be they should work their off hand...

This scenario does occur every once in a while, and personally I find that the inside roll (option 2) is the best bet. It's very difficult to get the d-man to commit to one side then beat him around to the other side (option 1) if he's at all fast on his feet.

a decent defensemen could easily break these plays up. if the attackmen beats him however, if the defense is in a decent slide package, that guy wood get murdered play the next slide or maybe even the goalie. however defense do break down sumtimes. this stuff does work somtimes. just keep a great slide package and that attackmen will get put on his ass

I get the point of this video, showing some new moves to people who might not have though to do this, but they don't give nearly enough credit to defensemen. We're not all lumbering idiots that just want to hit people, we know how to slide and play through picks, and there is no way an attackman can run around the backside of the crease faster than a defenseman can run across the front of it, unless he is really fat or something.

Let me clarify a few things for you Lax noobies

This video isn't all bad. First off no normal 6 on 6 defense every plans on not playing X but sometimes in the rotation the defender does not work hard enough to get across the crease and gets hung. It would benefit the viewer to put a goalie in the goal because Berger barely mentions that when you get a defender hung a decent lacrosse team locks everywhere and the hung defender chooses a side and the goalie comes out of the goal and goes around the other side to try and force him towards the defender. You always want to goes towards the goalie but make sure the defender commits and can't get back and come across crease. The 1st option only works if your really fast. As mentioned it works better looking to feed but you always want to look to score first then pass second but should always look to pass when dodging. The second one is your best bet and can be done even wider out and as a 1 on 1 dodge. The third option is ridiculous and a waste of a hung defender.

i like how the defenseman rolls off of him when he goes around to one side instead of laying hat.

Ok, i have been playing defense for 3 years and lsm for 1 year. and it may just be me, but a smart defender wouldnt do any of those mistakes in a real game. a good defender wouldnt run out at an attackman when hes nowhere near goaline extended, which means the 1st "hangup" wouldnt work. and the last move wouldnt work either, cause as a defender, you have to position your body to keep the player away from the cage. so if your gonna do any of these moves, make sure your defender has no idea what hes doing
