Behind four points each from Miles (3G, 1A) and Lyle (2G, 2A) and a 11 save afternoon from goalie Warren Hill, the Iroquois National Team ran away with a 16-5 win over Australia, securing its first-ever medal at a senior world championship and breaking the Sharks’ streak of a podium finish at every event dating back to 1967.

Up by a pair of goals at the halftime break on a relentlessly sunny and hot day on the turf outside of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, the Nationals went on a big run to close out the victory, scoring ten of the final 12 goals in the contest and gobbling up large sections of clock as the time wound down in the fourth quarter.

Faces etched with concern, sticks gripped overly tightly, and doubt creeping in. Welcome to the Canadian experience, amid a 4-1 deficit to the underdog Iroquois Nationals.

“Once we got down we were a little tight, and your mind starts to go to some bad places,” admitted veteran Brodie Merrill.

Merrill and his long-stick defense crew proved to be a key part of the rebound effort in a 12-6 come-from-behind victory on Thursday night before a pro-Iroquois crowd of 7,889 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. After surrendering four first-quarter goals: a pair by Lyle Thompson, another by Miles Thompson, and the opening goal by Randy Staats, the Canadian defense did not allow a goal until 15:23 remained in the final quarter.
