Most Overtimes in Boys’ Lacrosse History

by Mike Loveday

The more overtimes, the more the pressure mounts, which is why LaxRecords.com is highlighting the most overtimes in boys' lacrosse history.

To qualify for this list, teams must be playing a varsity schedule and play at least four overtimes.

Games are added to this list as discovered. This list is expected to be incomplete as not all states and teams report statistics. I am publishing an incomplete list now in hopes of participation from our readers.

To submit a performance to the national records list, have the head coach or an official team statistician e-mail information to Mike Loveday.

I recorded a podcast with the Western Albemarle (Va.) and St. Anne's-Belfield (Va.) coaches who were involved in the 14-overtime game. It's great to hear how each coach approached the game and overtimes.


I recorded a podcast with coaches Mike Caravana and of Western Albemarle and St. Anne's-Belfield about the longest game in boys’ high school lacrosse history.

On April 4, 1985, (Charlottesville, Va.) met Western Albemarle (Crozet, Va.) in the Dogwood Tournament. These teams played a 14 overtime game, which stands as the known record for the longest game played.

You Can Make a Difference

When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.

I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.

If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.

This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.

LaxRecords, Inc. (NFP) is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. Donors can deduct contributions under IRC Section 170.
