The Thompson Brothers Bring Lacrosse Home to the Iroquois


Three days before the most important tournament of their lives, the Thompson brothers—arguably some of the best players in the history of lacrosse—and their Iroquois national teammates started playfully lacing lacrosse balls through the rafters of Onondaga's brand new lacrosse arena.

The arena's huge arching beams—that make you feel like you're inside the ribcage of a giant wooden whale—have a gap about the size of a small refrigerator 40 feet up, which the Thompsons used as a detour to score on the four-foot-by-four-foot goal at the other end.
