Harvard Lacrosse

Last Tuesday, we went to the Harvard Lacrosse match (or is it called game?) vs. UMass (University of Massachusetts).

It was a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium.

This stadium is across the river from the main Harvard campus and is where the Business School is.

The stadium is a horse-shoe shape. It seats 30,323 and was built in 1903.

It looks like the Colosseum in Rome:

This was our first lacrosse game. It looks similar to hockey or soccer, with the goals at the ends.

10 players from each team are allowed on the field and it’s considered a “contact” sport. They were pretty brutal out there because they were allowed to push and we also saw some tripping.

Everyone has a stick with a net at the end, but the sizes are different depending on the position played.

It’s very fast moving and you have to pay attention to know where the little ball is because you can’t always figure out who has the ball because it’s in the net.

Every time a team scored, they had a face off for possession:
