If you were at Saturday’s National Lacrosse League title game in Rochester, you witnessed an action-packed event, full of defense, hard hitting and loud fans. If you watched the game on TV, it was good, but not as good as the real thing. Still some couldn’t do either, so we turn to the magic of photography. Ward Laforme Jr., who shoots NLL games through the season and a lot of Junior A and MSL games in the summer for ILIndoor, provided us with some images from Saturday’s game for your enjoyment. After the jump.
