Here Are Two Great Lacrosse Goals From The Past Weekend (Videos)

The first comes via an NCAA field lacrosse game between Johns Hopkins and Virginia on Saturday.  With the game tied 8-8, Zach Palmer put Johns Hopkins ahead when he somehow managed to come out from behind the Cavaliers’ goal, reach around an opposing defender and slot the ball into the back of the net.  The No. 2-ranked Blue Jays needed overtime, but they would eventually come out on top by a score of 11-10, handing the top-ranked Cavaliers their first loss in their last 14 games.

Here is a look at Palmer’s one-handed beauty.

As for the second goal, it comes from the National Lacrosse League’s leading scorer, as John Grant Jr. completed his first quarter hat-trick against the Philadelphia Wings with this incredible behind-the-back goal.  Grant would go on to finish the game with three goals and 12 points during the Colorado Mammoth’s 16-15 victory.  That is plenty of points for the 37-year-old, but none were prettier than the goal that completed his hat-trick.

Check it out.
