The game known as Lacrosse is a very high impact action packed game where the object is to get a ball into the opponent’s goal. Every time a team manages to complete this task, that team gets a point. At the end of the game, the team with the highest amount of points is deemed the winner.
Domestic Lacrosse has ten players on each team. For each side three men will infiltrate the other teams territory. Three players will be defensive players three will stay in the midfield and play either defensive or offensive positions. There is one goalie per team.
A complete game of Lacrosse will last 60 minutes with four 15 minute intervals or quarters. The start of every quarter begins with two men facing off for control of the ball. Whoever is the first to snag the ball from the other player gets to run with it. This battle for the ball is called a face off and it occurs every time a goal is scored as well to determine which side will have the ball.
Each Lacrosse team gets a two minute break after every quarter and a ten minute break during halftime. There are only two time outs allowed for each team during the game as well.
