Event Description: Professional Indoor Lacrosse – Toronto Rock host Philadelphia Wings.

For those unfamiliar, lacrosse was developed from traditional North American sport given by The Creator to our First Nations. Traditional lacrosse has existed since before the first permanent settlements by Europeans. Its current form dates back 150 years with the first organized game played at Montreal. Often referred to as “the fastest game on two feet”, lacrosse demands of its participants a unique blend of finesse, power, aggression, speed and fortitude that is arguably unequaled in other popular sports. Indoor or “box” lacrosse is an adaptation of the sport, invented in Canada in the 1930s. It is played on a ‘floor’, either a turf or hardwood overlay on the hockey rink, or on the concrete base under the rink. There are six players per side, usually five runners and a goaltender. Box lacrosse is a faster and rougher version of the sport which also incorporates familiar elements of hockey and basketball tactics and strategy. Enjoyment for most sports fans is promised.
