Lacrosse game scoreboard

I didn't know when I went to the bi-weekly "walk with the mayor" event at the Downey High School track that we would be watching a lacrosse game while we walked.

I don't remember ever hearing of lacrosse when I was in high school. But according to Wikipedia, lacrosse is a Native American game that was well-established and documented here as early as the seventeenth century. Wikipedia says, "It is a contact sport which requires padding such as shoulder pads, gloves, helmets, elbow pads, and sometimes even rib guards." However, these guys didn't look nearly as well padded as the typical football player. I was surprised, with all those big sticks flying on the field, that none of the guys wore shin guards.

Final score: Downey High School - 12, Manual High School from Los Angeles - 0.Lacrosse game Downey Vikings
