BOSTON, MA — The Israel men’s national team battled back from a 12-6 deficit to tie the game, but ultimately fell to Boston University in a 13-12 thriller, in exhibition play at Nickerson Field on Sunday.

Josh Offit’s goal with just under two minutes remaining capped the six-goal run, and deadlocked the score at 12-12, but the Terriers answered back with the decisive goal, with just 43 seconds left.

The blue-and-white had several opportunities in the waning seconds but were unable to force overtime.

Offit (three goals, one assist) and Louis Dubick (three goals) led Israel in scoring, while Mike Stone (two goals) and Ari Sussman (two goals) also chipped in. Kyle Bergman (one goal, one assist) and Noah Miller (one goal) added singles, and Joel Derechinsky cracked the scoresheet with an assist.

Israel jumped out to an early 2-0 lead to start the game, but BU came to life with a six-goal run to take command, and led for most of the day.

Mike Horowitz (43:00, 14 saves, 12 GA) and Ted Bergman (17:00, 4 saves, 1 GA) saw action in goal; Bergman was dealt the loss.

OAKVILLE, CANADA — The Israel men’s national team kicked off their campaign in preparation for the 2015 FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championships with a tryout camp this past weekend at Toronto Rock Athletic Centre. The three-day camp was the first ever action for the blue-and-white’s national box program, and featured not only Israeli players, but also Jewish athletes from Canada and the United States, all with varying levels of experience in the indoor game.

The weekend culminated with a full exhibition game against CLA Select on Sunday afternoon, played under FIL rules. Israel was neck-and-neck with the Select squad early, but Buffalo Bandits draft pick Dylan Goddard helped break a 3-3 tie and the more experienced Canadian squad broke open the game with a 10-goal run. Goddard finished with six goals and four assists in the 16-6 win.

Ashkelon resident Seth Mahler (Whittier) was one of several Israeli players who made the long trip to Oakville to attend the tryout camp.

Zachary Pall scored the first ever goal for Israel’s box program, on a breakaway opportunity on the power play at 5:32 to tie the game at 1-1. The two teams traded scores before the Select team took command of the game midway through the second quarter.

The blue-and-white were held scoreless for just under 30 minutes until Garrett Naimie scored on the power play, and Kevin Harper followed it up with another score just five seconds later off a Pall faceoff win.

Several Jewish Canadians such as Dalton Lundy (Clarington Jr. B / Hartford) suited up for Israel.

With the primary purpose of the game being player evaluation, four Team Israel goalies were dressed and saw action for both teams. Andrew Copeland (30:00, 26 saves, 3 GA), Jerryd Jensen (30:00, 15 saves, 2 GA), Mike Horowitz (30:00, 13 saves, 7 GA) and Bill Beroza (30:00, 16 saves, 7 GA) split time equally; Copeland was credited the win, while Beroza was dealt the loss.

The Israel Lacrosse Association wishes a “Todah Rabah” (thank you) and a “Chag Sameach” (happy holiday) to our Canadian friends who made our first box appearance possible — especially the players and coaches of the Select team, the officials, volunteers, and staff of the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre.

The "Premier League" will be comprised of primarily active collegiate lacrosse players in at least four major Israeli cities.

The “Premier League” will be comprised of primarily active collegiate lacrosse players in at least four major Israeli cities.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — The Israel Premier Lacrosse League (IPLL) will officially kick off its’ inaugural season in summer of 2015, with 4-6 men’s teams competing in major cities across the Jewish State.

The league will be comprised of primarily collegiate players with NCAA eligibility remaining, and will operate with the purpose of developing future professional and international players.

With a focus on the next generation, Premier League teams will only be granted to Israeli clubs with memberships of at least 100 youth lacrosse players, and Premier League athletes will have internship and volunteer opportunities in coaching those young lacrosse enthusiasts — as well as in marketing, public relations and operations for their club. Affordable housing will also be made available to visiting players in the “Lacrosse Embassy” of each city.

“Our focus is all about the kids,” said Israel youth development director David Lasday. “We want to give collegiate athletes the opportunity to give back, while keeping their game sharp during their offseason. Our facilities, our coaches, and everything else Israel has to offer in sport make us the perfect destination for active NCAA players.”

The Israeli club circuit has held dozens of exhibition games to showcase the sport since 2011, and has declared a champion each year, but 2015 will mark its’ first full, competitive season.

Athletes who are interested in competing in the Israel Premier Lacrosse League can register at http://www.israellacrosse.com/IPLL – Players of all nationalities and religious backgrounds are encouraged to participate.

Israel will hold tryouts for the 2015 European Championship squad this February in Ashkelon, Israel.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — The Israel Lacrosse Association has announced that Kelsey MacDonald has been named head coach of the Israel women’s national team which will compete at the 2015 European Lacrosse Championships, held in Nymburk, Czech Republic, from August 6-16.

MacDonald joins the blue-and-white after spending four seasons as head coach at Fort Lewis College, where she inherited a program in 2010 that had won just one game in its first two seasons (1-18). Under MacDonald’s guidance, the program amassed a 31-29 record, including its’ most successful season in the program’s six-year history in 2014, with a 10-7 record, finishing runner-up in the inaugural Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament.

“Kelsey brings a great passion for the game and an energy that will benefit not just our Euro team, but our entire program,” said Israel women’s committee chair Katie Mazer, who led the coaching search. “Her past experience and commitment to the development of the sport is strongly aligned with our mission to grow the game in Israel. We’re very excited to welcome Kelsey to Israel.”

MacDonald, who is a native of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, will be relocating to Israel in January to begin the team selection process.

MacDonald, who is a native of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, will be relocating to Israel in January to begin the team selection process. Formal tryouts for the 18-player squad are expected to be held in early February, in Asheklon, Israel, and the team will practice 3-4 times weekly in preparation for EC15. Per national policy, Israel’s European Championship squads will be composed of only Israel-based players.

“Kelsey is a very bright and successful coach,” added Lauren Paul Norris, who serves as head coach for Israel’s world team. “I am so excited that she will be joining the organization, and helping us grow lacrosse in Israel. We are very lucky to have someone of her caliber working with our athletes, and I look forward to working with her in the future.”

In addition to her coaching experience at Fort Lewis, MacDonald served as director for the Durango Youth Girls Lacrosse program. In the summer of 2012, she coached the Durangatangs, Durango’s high school’s club team, to their first ever Vail Shootout appearance. The Durangatangs were honored by a players’ All-Tournament selection and the coaching staffs’ US Lacrosse “Keepers of Lacrosse” award.

Before her time at Fort Lewis, MacDonald served as an assistant coach, and as interim head coach, at Wellesley College for two seasons, and an assistant and strength and conditioning coach at her alma mater, Plymouth State (N.H.) University, for one year. A four-year starter at Plymouth State in both lacrosse and soccer, MacDonald still holds the NCAA Division III record for ground balls (387), and is a member of the Plymouth State Athletic Hall of Fame.

Israel’s women’s squad made their international debut at the 2013 FIL World Cup in Oshawa, finished with a 5-3 record, including statement wins over #6 Scotland and #12 Germany in pool play, as well as a victory over #10 New Zealand in the playoffs. The finish earned the blue-and-white a #8 world ranking, good for fourth in Europe behind #4 England, #5 Wales and #6 Scotland.
