“Employing a face guard displays lack of confidence in your defense or incompetence as a coach, especially if your team traditionally plays a zone defense. When used against a strong player and a well coached offensive team the face guard will not be effective. Lacrosse is a team sport and good coaches utilize their entire team in all aspects of the game (one women teams do not win). When a face guard does work it usually because the player being face guarded is not a very strong player or the coaches of the player being guarded do not know what to do. This is not High School, the face guard is simply not effective vs a well coached balanced team or against a legit player.”
This long winded post did not age well. It’s got to be the same braggart who makes up his own stats about ball hog shooting percentages .
