For the last two years we’ve documented the ridiculously unfair playing advantage that Somerset-Berkley Regional High School’s field hockey team has because of the fact that their two best players are boys. They both play the entire game, they play close to the net, and because of their obvious physical advantages due to their gender, they won the state championship last year. Watch the final goal scored by Lucas Crook, the coach’s son, in their state championship victory over Nashoba Regional.

Well Lucas is a senior this year, and he’s having TONS of fun kicking the shit out of girls again. He’s actually destroying girls records.

With those kind of numbers you’d think he’d be offered a Division 1 scholarship, but unfortunately for him the NCAA doesn’t let boys play field hockey because they understand that it’s a girl’s sport. But the MIAA does, because the MIAA is the most corrupt, useless institution that has ever existed.
Meanwhile check out how DOMINANT their team has been this year.
Not only are they 18-0, and a guarantee to win the state championship again this year, they’ve scored 173 goals and given up 3. Three freaking goals!! The fact that anyone is OK with this is mind boggling. Check out what they’re doing to these teams:
And please, spare me your bullshit about “men play field hockey in Europe and Australia.” Well guess what? Somerset-Berkley is in America. And in America boys don’t put on skirts and beat up on girls. Plus, in Europe, men are competing against other men. So if the demand is there to start a boys field hockey league then more power to them. But for now, it’s an absolute disgrace that this is allowed to continue.
Last year I said that the only way this would possibly get fixed is if every school started encouraging boys to this. And that includes St. John’s, Xaverian, and other all boy schools. Why shouldn’t they have field hockey teams too if it’s a coed sport?
Well, apparently that message caught on, because Wayland High School is now pulling the same shenanigans.

What planet am I living on where this is normal?
“The girls were super excited about it because they knew that having boys was an advantage. Just ups the level of the game a little bit,” said Coach Shelly Fraser.
Translation – our girls sucked and never made the playoffs (WHS hasn’t made it in 4 years, meaning none of the current players ever did), so obviously we were all pretty fired up when we magically got better because a bunch of 17 and 18 year old men came in and started kicking ass.
Then there was this lady.
“If offends me when people assume that just because they’re boys they’re automatically going to be better, and that’s just not been the case.”
That was immediately followed by this from the reporter:
“Wayland beat Wakefield in round 1 of the playoffs and two of the boys scored the only 2 goals.”
Yea, why would anyone assume that having three boys playing would be an advantage? It offends this white woman from Wayland to be told that boys and girls sports are separated because there’s some sort of physical advantage to being male. It’s not like these three boys single handedly took a shitty team, turned it into a good team, and scored 100% of their team’s goals so far in the playoffs.
Liza Knapp is also the mother of the captain for Wayland who is ecstatic that her team no longer sucks.
“People are sacrificial with their playing time if it means we’re gonna go farther.”
Remember when kids had pride? This is your sport. Sure, your team sucked, but at least it was YOUR team. The fact that girls who have been playing for 4 years were so willing to give up their playing time to a bunch of boys tells me that these kids are being failed by their coaches and parents.
All you need to know about this sport is that these boys never played field hockey before in their life, they joined the team, and now they’re unstoppable. It just proves that skill and all that other nonsense doesn’t actually matter. The only thing that matters is they’re bigger, stronger, and faster than the girls. Therefore they can beat them at their own sport.
This one from the coach, who clearly sounds like she’s from a country where this is normal, had me cracking up.
“They’ve (parents) made boys cry. To hear it from adults has really been hard for them.”
Boo fucking hoo. Have you ever thought for one second how it makes the girls on the other team feel? And I’m glad they’re getting shit from parents on other kid’s teams, because it means their parents love their kids and are standing up to their bullies. Obviously these boys aren’t hearing it from their parents or coaches, because they’re growing up in a world where no one is allowed to tell them no, because it might hurt their precious feelz. I’m glad they cried. Maybe they won’t be such pussies moving forward.
