For the fourth consecutive time, Team Canada edged out the Iroquois Nationals for the FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championships gold medal.
This time around, Canada came away with a 12-8 victory in front of over 10,000 fans at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY.
“It’s a tough one, that’s for sure,” Iroquois Nationals head coach Rich Kilgour said. “I’m disappointed. I’m definitely not disappointed in us. I’m just disappointed that we came up a goal or two short. I really think we had the team to do it this year. But you have to give Canada credit. They’re a great team and they beat us in a really good lacrosse game.”
In the first quarter, both teams exchanged goals, with Johnny Powless, Haina Thompson and Miles Thompson getting on the board for the Iroquois Nationals, while Curtis Dickson scored twice for Canada with Shawn Evans adding one.
