2010 World Lacrosse Championships: Team USA Defeated Japan 20-5 And Will Face Canada In FIL World Championships Final

THE United States took no mercy on Japan as they powered into this year’s FIL World Championships final.

The eight-time winners stormed to a 20-5 victory having started in fine fashion by winning the opening quarter 8-1. Star player Paul Rabil led from the front with four goals, while Kyle Dixon and Drew Westervelt both scored hat-tricks as the US had the game won at half-time as they led 6-0.

CANADA had few problems as they breezed past Australia and into this year’s showcase final against the United States.

The defending champions eased to a 15-6 victory in Manchester and will now play their arch-rivals the US in a repeat of the 2006 final in Ontario. Many will have expected that match up, but Australia were understandably out to spring a surprise.But although the men from Down Under led 3-2 early in the contest, Canada raised their game to make it six wins out of six in this year’s tournament.

National High School Boys Lacrosse Tournaments: Team Spirit Defeated Team Freedom 15-12 To Win 2010 Champion High School Showcase At ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex In Florida

Team Spirit used early faceoff dominance from Robert Abbott (Bullis (Md.) School) and some late defense from a stingy group led by team MVP Maxx Meyer (Half Hills East (N.Y.) HS) to defeat Team Freedom, 15-12, to win the gold-medal game of the 2010 Champion High School Showcase (HSS), a four-team US Lacrosse all-star event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Thursday. US Lacrosse brought lacrosse to the ESPN Rise Games, an annual multi-sport festival, for the first time with the HSS.

Abbott, strong on draws throughout the three-day tournament, won his first six to stake Spirit to a 4-2 lead. Connor Mooney (Avon Old Farms (Conn.) School) twice converted feeds from Nick Galasso (West Islip (N.Y.) HS) for Spirit, and on a couple occasions it looked like Spirit would repeat its 22-6 win over Freedom in Wednesday’s final game of pool play. But Freedom rallied a couple times, the last time from down 10-5 to down one at 11-10 late in the third quarter.
