A West Island lacrosse team has been pulled from the championships by its own coach for fear of excessive violence.

Coach Ken Cave told CBC News reporter Andie Bennett that he feared his career would be over by pulling his team out of a best-of-five series, but he couldn’t risk having any of his other players hurt.

Cave says this incident is one of many in a sport he feels is becoming increasingly more violent.
