WLA announces new overtime format

Earlier today, the Western Lacrosse Association announced a new approach to overtime, most notably, 3-on-3 action and sudden death results. The changes will be implemented in time for the 2019 season.

The WLA Board of Governors has approved new rule changes regarding the overtime, designed to improve the already exciting pace of play and enhance the fan experience at WLA regular season games.

Overtime will now be a 5-minute, 3 on 3, sudden death period. This replaces the previous 10-minute 5 vs. 5 format and will bring a faster, more exciting overtime to the floor.
