World Champion Team USA Men’s Lacrosse: The “Redeem Team” Wins One For The “Old Guys”

Team USA Lacrosse Goalie Brian Dougherty: “Wearing this flag on my back, you know, it’s for my country. It’s something that they had that we needed to get back,” said Dougherty, referring to Canada’s win over the U.S in the gold medal game four years ago. “Put all that together with it being my last game, there’s a lot of stuff going on here.” It’s hard to imagine lacrosse without Dougherty, the portly, loud-mouthed, bald 36-year old who will go down as one of the best goalkeepers the sport has ever seen. Doc made 15 saves Saturday to lead the U.S. national team to a 12-10 victory over Canada in the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championship final at the University of Manchester.
