BOISE -- Two groups of athletes came together Saturday for a game of wheelchair rugby to benefit City Light Women's Shelter.

The Boise Bombers, Idaho's only quad rugby team faced the Vallivue High School Lacrosse Team.

There was no scrimage fee, but folks were asked to bring a turkey or non-perishable food for the shelter.

Josiah Sullivan, who played lacrosse at Vallivue High School, became wheelchair-bound after a car accident.

He says events like this are a great way to help the community.

I believe what you give out you get back in return, said Sullivan.

The Boise Bombers will be in Dallas for a tournament in February.

Sullivan says wheelchair rugby used to be called murder ball because it is so physical.
