BOSTON, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The manager of the Boston Blazers lacrosse team apologized for a racy halftime show involving scantily clad women giving lap dances to the team's mascot.

Doug Reffue, president and general manager of the team, apologized Monday for Saturday's halftime contest to see who could give the "best lap dance" to team mascot Scorch, the Boston Herald reported Tuesday.

Reffue said the act, which drew many complaints from parents who brought children to the game, was "clearly not executed according to plan."

"We are extremely disappointed with elements of the halftime show," Reffue wrote on the team's Facebook page.

"We had intended to provide an entertaining and fun halftime environment for our fans and that is not what transpired. We have already taken steps to ensure this never happens again. We will redouble our efforts to ensure a great experience at all future Blazers games."
