This video from a Florida prep lacrosse game has been making the rounds on the Internet the past week. In it, a St. Andrews’ lax player gets sucker punched by a St. Thomas Aquinas player as the STA player is leaving the field. St. Andrews went on to win the game 20-6.
Many people up in New England do not know about St. Andrews. The Scots play out of Boca Raton, and they are legit when it comes to lax. They have several players going D1 this year, and they are coached by none other than Syracuse lacrosse legend Casey Powell.
It’s too bad that people are focusing on the sucker punch instead of paying attention to the growth of lacrosse at schools outside of the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. St. Andrews’ only losses were to Boy’s Latin of Maryland and Brunswick of CT. Look for an upset as they play schools outside of FL in the future.
