In the realm of high school sports, people have come up with some very interesting distractions in an attempt to rattle an opposing player.
However during a recent high school girls’ ice hockey game in Massachusetts between Medley-Ashland and Winthrop, a fan decided to bring a laser pointer to the game and used it to distract the Medley-Ashland goalie by shining it at her:
With the score tied 1-1 entering the third period, the father of a Winthrop player was removed from the arena after he was caught shining a laser at the Medley-Ashland goalie.
Medway-Ashland goalie Kathryn Hamer was clearly distracted by the laser.
“It’s kind of like when you look at the sun and then you look away you see that spot and you can’t see for a couple of seconds. You shake your head and try to get it out of the system and just keep focusing, but it’s difficult,” she told WBZ-TV.
Medway-Ashland ended up losing the game by the score of 3-1 and tried to file an appeal to replay the third period after the game. Since then, that appeal has been rejected by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association and it appears that the score will be unchanged.
