New for the 2012 Ocean City Lacrosse Classic is a Braveheart competition. Everyone who has played lacrosse knows what a Braveheart is and it is…AWESOME. But, for those who aren’t familiar with the term a Braveheart usually decides the outcome of a game instead of playing Overtime. The Braveheart involves one goalie and one middie from each team. The middies faceoff and play one-on-one until the first player scores. Pretty simple, but remember it’s called Braveheart for a reason. It’s glorious!
The competition takes place Saturday August 18th at 8 PM Northside Park. Read the guidelines below.
