  • Short Summary

    Toronto vs. Montreal - Lacrosse gets a violent bent when played by Canadian men.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. Box Lacrosse is a 'stunning' game. First match between Toronto & Montreal - causes sensation - already threatens popularity of the comparatively mild excitement of 'All In' Wrestling."

    United States of America. (Odd that both teams are Canadian)

    Views of a fast and furious game of indoor lacrosse. It looks fairly violent, people are pushed out of the way and barged on a regular basis. Toronto and Montreal teams seem to have learnt the lessons from their ice hockey playing friends.

    Suddenly the game turns nasty. One of the players hits an opponent over the head with his stick. The injured party clutches his head and seems disorientated for a moment. He then turns around to retaliate and a fight breaks out. The referee and team mates step in to calm things down.

    Violent stuff!
