The directors of a Westerly youth lacrosse association are concerned after a local field was victim to vandalism overnight.

The lacrosse field on Bradford Street had its nets slashed and parts of the field dug up in the overnight hours.

Westerly Police were alerted by the President and Vice President of the Westerly youth lacrosse league on Friday morning.

The league plans to make repairs to the field so it is fit for games scheduled late Friday afternoon.

The field has been the source of controversy in the town with some residence critical of the plans to put the field on the Bradford preserve.
