Still dreaming of lacrosse in the Olympics? Another hurdle has been cleared.
The Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) was named one of three new members of the International World Games Association (IWGA) earlier this month. The IWGA is officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and conducts quadrennial world championships for non-Olympic sports.
The acceptance follows the FIL being accepted as a member of SportAccord in May 2012. SportAccord is the umbrella organization for Olympic and non-Olympic sports.

Two members of the Iroquois Nationals were selected to All-World Team for the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championshp, held in Denver, CO from July 10-19. Attackman Lyle Thompson finished the tournament with 16 goals and 7 assists. Midfielder Jeremy Thompson finished with 5 goals and 2 assists.

The Nationals were 5-3 overall, defeating Australia in their final game to secure a bronze medal. The result was their best ever finish.

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.

“Basically, we just opened it up [in the second half] and started hammering down the alleys with our middies and that seemed to really wear them down,” head coach Steve Beville said. “Obviously we’ve got a lot of skilled guys, so we knew we would be able to score.”
