World Games: Day 3 — Iroquois Top Japan

The Iroquois Nationals dismantled Japan 24-9 Saturday afternoon at the FIL World Lacrosse Championships in Denver to improve to 2-0 in the Blue Division.

The Iroquois got out to a 3-0 lead with 11:12 left in the first, with Miles Thompson putting up a goal and two assists, both of those feeds on goals by Cody Jamieson.
