Yes, the sport of Lacrosse has two different kinds of midfielders, otherwise known as: "Middies". There are Defensive 'middies' who stay on their side of the field, and they play on both sides of the field, but mainly on their side. The second kind is the Offensive Middie. Their job is to assist the Attack (main offensive players in lacrosse) in landing the ball into the opposing team's goal.

Who are the players that score goals in Lacrosse?

The most common people who score goals in lacrosse, are people who play the attack position. They are stationed on the opponents side of the field, ready to receive pass and cannon a shot into the goal. Midfielders(also known as Middies) are also very common scorers in Lacrosse. They can run anywhere on the field, but they start in the middle. They are not always near the opponents goal, so it is less often that they score. Also, It is not a middies main job to score, but it is an attack player's main job to score. There is one more player that can score, and that is the goalie. The goalie is allowed to run across the field with the ball and score. This is a very risky move though. Because if an opposing player steals the ball from the goalie, they could run to the goalie-free net and pop it in. So that is the lineup for the players that score goals in lacrosse.
