The University of Dayton men’s club lacrosse team and Western Michigan found an interesting way to settle a scrimmage Saturday.
The game was tied and cancelled by lightning, so the teams used a best-of-three game of rock, paper, scissors to determine a winner. The Broncos won 2-0. Adam Wissman, a junior midfielder from Fishers, Ind., represented Dayton in the rock, paper, scissors game.
“It was all in the spur of the moment,” Wissman said. “We had driven a long way to play, so I guess we had to compete on some level. I asked one of the guys to play a game of rock, paper, scissors to decide a ‘winner’ and then a mob of teammates just surrounded us. Overall pretty tough loss for UD, but we’ll recover.”
The teams play in the Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association in the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association. This is their fall practice season. The official season starts in the spring.
