Family Road Trip for Pro Lacrosse! New England Black Wolves Game

By 0 Permalink 0

As you may already know, Honda Mama is a hockey mom. And what do hockey players do when the ice melts and the calendar tells us it’s spring? They play lacrosse, of course! We have 2 avid LAX players (and a newly-drafted LAX coach) in the house, and last weekend, we had the opportunity to see a professional lacrosse game with their Cranston LAX teammates. The New England Black Wolves played the Rochester Knighthawks at Mohegan Sun Arena. We all piled into the Pilot and took a road trip down for the excitement and intensity of pro lacrosse!

Indoor or “box” lacrosse differs from outdoor lacrosse. We were used to watching our kids play indoor, hoofing it up and down a huge field, so it had a much different look and feel. The smaller space of the “box” makes for a compressed, fast-paced game. And if you love hockey’s–um–assertiveness, you’ll definitely enjoy box lacrosse. My kids cheered like crazy at every scrappy play, and the goals were so exciting.  It was a close one for the Black Wolves, but they’ve had an amazing season and are headed to the playoffs.

The atmosphere at the game was a lot of fun, very family-friendly. The Black Wolves mascot came around to take pictures with kids and there were plenty of promotions like raffles and free tee-shirts.

“We are excited to have the Black Wolves here at Mohegan Sun,” Vice President Chris Sienko said. “It is a fast-paced, exciting sport that is growing by leaps and bounds within the local community. It also has origins in the Native American culture, making it a perfect fit for the Mohegan Tribe both on and off the field.” Seeing a game with roots in Native American tradition was exciting for my kids: because of our Native American heritage, they feel like it’s our game, especially when they get to see amazing Native players like Bill O’Brien and Brett Bucktooth on the field.

Update:

We attended the New England Black Wolves’ first playoff game on Friday, May 6, 2016. They won! Next playoff game is Monday, May 16, 2016  and there are tickets available at the New England Black Wolves website. So if you love sports and a great family night out, we’ll see you there.

OWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
