The Philadelphia Freedom Lacrosse Club’s 2025 team has had a banner beginning for the boys first summer club lacrosse season.
After going undefeated at its two prior tournaments (Liberty Lacrosse Shootout Tournament and NXT Meltdown Tournament) and taking the championships at both of those, the 2025 Freedom team claimed its third and final championship for this season at the Philly Showdown held last weekend at Germantown Academy.
The team consists of boys from Great Valley, Coventry, Lionville, Downingtown, Coatesville, West Bradford and surrounding areas.
Playing in the top bracket at the Philly Showdown Tournament, the boys had convincing wins in pool play against Tri-State from NJ, Brotherly Love 2025, PA Roughriders 2025, and Team Ten 2025.
The semi-final game was played against a BBL, a NJ team, and Freedom 2025 team won that with an impressive shut out of 10-0. The championship game was played against the Springfield Cougars Lacrosse team, which was a rematch from the championship game the weekend prior at the NXT Meltdown Tournament. Freedom 2025 had won that championship in OT, 6-5. The final result at the Philly Showdown was 14-5.
