The 2021 lacrosse season is here and it appears all systems are a go. A year ago, everything was shut down and cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with vaccines being administered across the country and virus numbers are down, the upcoming season looks like it’s going to happen. Albeit the games will mostly in-conference games, ending with the conference championships.
But most games will be limited to how many fans will be able to attend. So the demand to view games via Live Stream, and through other media platforms (such as PeaceLacrosse) will be high. That is why Legendary Sports Group and Kelly Benefits have teamed up to bring you a slate of games from the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association.
Here’s the full release from LSG as well as the Game Schedule…
