Connecticut tandem pulls off wonderfully deceptive hidden ball trick — in lacrosse

Every once in a while, fans are treated to the rare delight that is the hidden ball trick, but for generations this pleasure was reserved for the baseball faithful — until now. That's right. Salisbury (Conn.) School teammates Justin Guterding and Matt Gaudet pulled off the hidden ball trick in a lacrosse game.

How, you ask? Well, thankfully the play was caught on film. If you follow the balll, which Connecticut rival Hotchkiss School players had plenty of difficulty with, the video shows Gaudet seemingly flip the ball to Guterding, only to rush past the defense and fire the ball into the back of the net for an easy goal.

It's no surprise Guterding and Gaudet are the pair to pull off this rare lacrosse deception. The former is one of the nation's top post-grad players in the nation and the latter is an elite sophomore recruit. In the future, they'll be rivals at Duke and Syracuse, respectively, but for now they're the Penn and Teller of prep lacrosse.
