The most skilled players use fakes.
Offensive players, add this to your game. Understand why it works.
The near pipe fake completely fools the goalie allowing the Tufts attackman to finish on a wide open net to the far pipe. Worst case scenario is that the initial fake freezes the goalie and now the attackman is in the middle of the net (instead of fading to the near pipe) and he's racing the goalie to the far pipe, the goalie's off hip.
Fakes are free as StickStar Lacrosse likes to say.
Don't forget to finish in front like an adult.
