The incident occurred in Ft. Lauderdale, where regional power Boca Raton (Fla.) St. Andrews School was visiting traditional rival Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas School in a Florida High School Athletic Association Regional Final. As reported in detail by Wells Dusenbury of West Palm Beach’s ESPN Radio affiliate, ESPN760, the ugly incident began when St. Thomas Aquinas defenseman Jake Champion threw a punch at a St. Andrew’s player in the third quarter.
The standout lacrosse player from St. Thomas Aquinas and future knockout artist was being escorted off the field as seen in the video for a previous sucker punch that he just laid on another opponent. As he was being escorted Jake Champion threw one of the weakest cheap shots you will ever see along with the biggest flop of all time. The punch didn’t even land accurately and both Champion and the receipent of the last sucker punch were wearing gear so the kid rolling around like he just got shot in the face was milking a bit too much.
