How did I get a 2002 song stuck in my head from looking up 2019 lacrosse scores?

No lacrosse knowledge needed to solve this puzzle.

Numbers relevant? Does the song have numbers in it? Could it happen when looking up other scores? Is the number of goals scored in typical lacrosse matches relevant? If so, do each team typically score: 0-3? 4-7? 8-12? 13-20? More? Team names relevant? Did you see words that were in a song?

Well done, almost there!

********SPOILER********

On the website that I use to look up lacrosse scores, team names are usually abbreviated with three letters. When I looked up the score of the MTV - BOI game, I got Avril Lavigne's "Sk8ter Boi" stuck in my head, which was all over MTV in 2002.
