Team USA Women’s U-19 Lacrosse Defeats Scotland 13-1 To Advance To Semifinals Of 2011 FIL U-19 Women’s World Championship

With a stifling defensive effort, the U.S. beat Scotland, 13-1, in the quarterfinals of the 2011 FIL Under-19 Women’s World Championship. Team USA improved to 6-0 in the tournament and advanced to the semifinal round versus England on Friday.

“We wanted our defense to be very patient with their checking and to force the attacker to make the mistake. We did a great job of that,” said U.S. head coach Krystin Porcella. “They used their feet to play good defense and always had each other’s backs on their slides.”

Defender Caileigh Sindall won Player of the Match honors with four ground balls. Sindall and the rest of the American defense held Team Scotland to its lowest goal total of the tournament. Scotland came in averaging 16 goals per game, but was held scoreless until Natasha Rodgers scored with less than two minutes remaining.

Lacrosse In The Inner City: Denver Outlaws Attacker Connor “Con Bro Chill” Martin Visits Frederick Douglas Academy In New York City (Video)

With pop music blaring from his portable waistband boombox, Connor “Con Bro Chill” Martin entered the blisteringly hot gymnasium at Frederick Douglass Academy around noon. After introducing himself to the audience, Connor began interacting with the crowd of 40 boys and girls. He was forced to elevate his voice while providing tips and tricks for the better part of two hours, talking above both the excited cheers of onlookers and the clamor of girls playfully conducting clapping games in the basketball stands.

The Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership Corporation (www.HarlemLacrosse.org), as well as the players from Frederick Douglass Academy, would like to thank Connor Martin + Flow Society for the fantastic visit. Please see below for video from the event. Photos are coming soon…
