Maaslax at the Introduction Week

Maaslax's promotions engines are running at 100% at the moment! You might have met us already during the Sportsday of the INKOM last week. Hundreds of students had the possibility to get used to playing Lacrosse, doing some passing and having some shots on the goal.

Maaslax is always looking for you! Thus, we are promoting during the Introduction Week. Find us today at the SBE at the Kruithuis Garden. Tomorrow we will be there as well and you have the opportunity to try out the fastest sport on the ground.

Drop by and enjoy some Lacrosse

Scrimmage 2.0: Lamas vs- A-Team 

After starting with a fairly new team in February with quiet some rookies, the Lamas Maastricht scheduled another Scrimmage against the Aachen A-Team at the field in Maastricht.

Three month of training paid of and all rookies were able to play and showed their best skills. Aachen went ahead to a 0-3 lead in the first quarter, followed by the 0-1 in the second quarter, sending the players into half-time with an overall score of 0-4.

The Lamas defense did it best to minimize the damage but to many turnovers when Maastricht was in offense made challenged our defense a lot during the first two quarters. Having only two subsidies due to quiet some injuries in the Lamas team (which was fully present at the side-line, responsible for consuming the leftover alcoholic beverages of the rookie night), the physical endurance of the team was tested to its limits. A final result of 1-6 for the A-Team was a fair results. The Lamas showed their best effort and especially in the second half the result of 1-2 showed that the we compete on the same level as Aachen.

This was the last scrimmage with Aachen this year. However, Maastricht and Aachen will form a mixed team and participate in the Berlin Open '14.

Stix Up!

You Reap What you Sow

After the long, snowy winter break, the Lamas came back to training with lots of good intentions and big plans for the start of the Spring season.

However, due to the loss of key players the team was decimated to a fraction of the Fall squad.  To name a few, Matthez Schwartz, Jason Monroe, Casey Gill, Matt Gallo, Paul Staal, Daniel Khachab, Adrain Hoffstädter, Clemens Blettgen, Mauro Jülich, Moritz Tengelmann, Dominik Hamacher, and Daniel Thomas all left the university and also left a deep hole in the Roster that could not be filled in the 3 weeks leading up to the start of the Spring season.

After consultations with the Nederlandse Lacrosse Bond (NLB) and the Lady Lamas, who were facing similar troubles, the Board of the Lamas decided to not participate in the NLB Divisie Ost anymore. The decision was not easy but it was agreed by everyone that not having a sufficient number of referees and players would frustrate not only the  players in Maastricht, but across the Dutch league.

Nevertheless, the remaining players showed resilience and good moral keeping up the intensity in the training sessions. Over the course of February and March, the Lamas have integrated new players and become a more international and integrated team.

The spirit in the new team is remarkable for a difficult time for the organization. The rebuilding of a competitive team is the Lamas’ first priority on the field. Off the field, it will be vital to create a more stable and balanced board structure that will have sound financial judgment throughout the year so that all participating members get the best experience from being a member of Maastricht Lacrosse.

It remains to be seen, where the team will stand come next September but if the emerging sun over Maastricht is any indication, the future of Maaslax looks bright.
