Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1. Uganda outlasted Kenya 9-8 in triple overtime Saturday in Nairobi in the first-ever Africa Association of Lacrosse qualifier for the last spot at the 2023 World Lacrosse Men’s Championship. Thirty teams will compete next summer in San Diego.

2. Two professional lacrosse leagues are joining the Sixes movement. An Athletes Unlimited exhibition Dec. 17 and the Premier Lacrosse League Championship Series — a five-day campaign in February — will be played using a 6v6 format. Both events are at The St. James in Springfield, Va.

3.  A Montana father and son reportedly broke a Guinness World Record when they passed two lacrosse balls back and forth 40 times in one minute.

4. In National Lacrosse League preseason action, Panther City defeated New York 13-10, Saskatchewan beat Toronto 16-14, Georgia topped Albany 12-10, Vegas defeated Colorado 12-9 and Buffalo beat Philadelphia 13-9. The exhibition schedule concludes next weekend and the regular season starts Dec. 2.
