The Lacrosse Pigs celebrate victory (pic, Emma Fish)

This week was a very slow one in terms of Lacrosse, with poor attendances to both training sessions ultimately leading to us having to cancel the game thanks to a little thing called LEGGIT – who chooses that over Lacrosse! Despite this I still managed to come out of the week feeling like I’d been hit by a freight train, partly because of Russel – our strength and conditioning coach – and his insistence of us doing front squats, but mainly because of the amount of running we had to do on Wednesday evening – thanks Farmers!

For those of you who are choosing to waste your life by reading this and don’t belong to BU Lacrosse then you should know a rather epic night happened on Wednesday. Dressed as a particular farm animal (I was a pig), we were forced to do tasks involving drinking – as you do – eating raw onion – as you shouldn’t – and an unholy amount of running! One of the tasks on the way to Walkabout in town was that a member of our team had to get their hair cut. So as is the obvious thing, instead of finding the nearest place with scissors on Winton high street, you just have to run all the way to Charminster where in my house is the only pair of scissors in Bournemouth….apparently. Needless to say my housemates were a little bit shocked when a six-foot pig burst through the door shouting scissors, give me scissors! Of course a lot more went down that night, but firstly, this is a Lacrosse blog and secondly I’m not sure I can reveal it on here.

Rampage strikes 

Back to Lacrosse then, or what there was of it this week. Instead of the game against Cheltenham, we had a relaxed training session where, once again I was a little bit hanging from the night before, making goal tending all the more exciting…. By the end of it though, I perked up and even played outfield in a mixed game after Joe Jackson rather reluctantly volunteered to go in goal. However, it was Jackson’s alter-ego, Rampage Jackson who made the biggest impact in the game after he launched a ball straight into Monika’s face with an accidental ‘misplaced’ pass….Just kidding, it did look very painful though.

Anyway, like I said, it was a slow week for Lacrosse this week, but I still learned some valuable lessons. Number 1 – Pigs rule, 2 – if Rampage Jackson is about to throw the ball, duck for god sake, and finally 3 – D-poles are the scariest things in the world when shooting at goal!
