Lacrosse goalie gets laid out and a massive brawl ensues

Caught on Camera: Girls Softball Brawl Draws Scorn from Other Parents


By JOHN DORN

The very nature of sports lends itself to fighting. In the heat of competition, with emotions flaring, even the friendliest of athletes could find themselves in the middle of a skirmish.

This was the case last month in a Junior B box lacrosse game between the New West Salmonbellies and the Coquitlam Adanacs. In a video that has gone viral this week, a goalie gets demolished while trying to play the ball. As teammates have always done and always will do, red-clad lax bros rushed to their netminder's aid. AKA, pummeling the ever-loving snot out of the culprit.




One physical play turned into a retaliation, which turned into an all-out brawl. For the most part, it was restricted to the players on the tile, without any players from the bench joining in (except for No. 14 in red -- that scoundrel).

Order was restored in about a minute, after most players seemed to have exhausted themselves. Violence isn't necessarily cool -- but this time, it made for an entertaining and relatively harmless team boxing match.
