Lacrosse Brawl! (Video)
Lacrosse is an interesting sport. It was invented by Native Americans, which is pretty cool, but it kind of feels a lot like hockey with weird sticks and no ice. There’s almost as much padding, probably as much checking, and definitely as much fighting—and that includes your standard one-on-one fights, plus your garden variety line brawls.
Now, it has been a little while since we last saw a really great lacrosse brawl. The last one we told you about was in May of 2012, and it featured a bunch of 16-18 year old kids going wild in British Columbia. Meanwhile, the last pro lacrosse brawl we told you about was five months before that.
So in other words, we’re long overdue. It’s with great satisfaction, therefore, that I bring you this epic brawl between the Oakville Rock and Brooklin Redmen of Major Series Lacrosse, a small-time pro league based in Ontario. It all starts with a regular one-on-one fight, but escalates into a frenzied free-for-all when one of the Oakville players decides to familiarize his fists with the faces of the guys sitting on the Brooklin bench.
Take a look:
As you can hear, all nine fans in attendance got a big kick out of this.
Hopefully these guys patched things up over some pitchers of Molson Canadian afterward.
