    Bench clearing brawl breaks out between two Intermediate A (16-18) lacrosse teams in BC.

    and here's a different angle, more close up. Some real hay-makers thrown.

    Sweet donnybrook, but it peters out way faster than you think it will.

    And here I was always led to believe that lacrosse players had stamina.

    There's some joke in here about Canada's national sport, but I can't seem to figure it out.

    National summer sport. Just to be clear. :)

    For a minute it looked like the flow of a rugby match.

    I like how the goalie waddled out to the blue line to take out a dude.

    This is your coverage area isn't it?

    I am very familiar with this league as someone very close to me it plays in it. This is the age group where they are first allowed to fight, the beginning of each year is a shit show, but this was bad.

    Meaning the coaches encourage them to drop gloves in the first few games? The players don't understand the unwritten rules of brawling (like no two-on-ones or punching a defenseless opponent)?

    No, you have a bunch of testoterone filled kids that are all of a sudden allowed to fight. There are more fights at the beginning of the year than at the end. It is a novelty and theses teenagers think they have something to prove. A bench clearing brawl rarely happpens. Line brawls a little more often but the norm is just a 1 on 1 fight.

    Has anyone told Canada that this is Canada's national (summer) sport? Word doesn't seem to have gotten out just yet.

    Yes it is, spent all day yesterday chasing it, thought some on the board may enjoy the clips.

    Bench clearing brawls at this level are rare, league commissioner said it was the first one he had seen in 12 years at the post. 15 suspensions.

    The team that I am close to had a line brawl last week. They play Nanaimo this weekend. The coaches need to be suspended for a very long time.
