Test 3

Should girls' rules mirror the boys?

NORTH ATTLEBORO - If you watch high school games during the spring sports season on North TV, you’ve surely noticed the difference between boys’ lacrosse and the girls’ game.

Boys' lacrosse is much more physical with the players wearing helmets, shoulder pads and hockey-like gloves. The girls simply wear goggles and contact is prohibited.

The girls’ version of ice hockey is also different with checking limited.

Is it time to let the girls play by the same rules as the boys? It’s a question asked of North TV’s Del Malloy, Jared Ware and Mark Farinella, along with WARA radio’s Paul Healy during a recording of “Up for Discussion: Spring Sports Edition.”
