“2013 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup”: Team USA Women’s Lacrosse Captures Record Seventh World Title With 19-5 Win Over Canada On July 20


Team USA Women's Lacrosse FIL World Championship 2013

USC women’s lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday and assistant coach Devon Wills each captured their second FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) Women’s World Cup gold medals as they helped Team USA to a record seventh world title on Saturday, July 20. The U.S. completed a truly dominant run to its championship with a 19-5 win over host nation Canada to finish 7-0 in the tournament.
Munday served as team captain for Team USA and finished with nine goals and 15 assists in the tournament for 24 points. She had a personal tournament-best six points (four goals and two assists) in the U.S.’s 21-8 win over England in the semifinals and notched a goal and four assists in a win over Australia in pool play. Wills had two games in which she had five saves each and finished with 16 saves in the tournament.
Team USA set program and tournament records for goals (127), goals per game (18.0), and margin of victory (13.2). The tournament saw the Americans outscore their opponents by a combined 127-34. This win was Team USA’s seventh World Cup title, having reached the final in all nine World Cup tournaments.
Both Munday and Wills were part of Team USA’s 2009 gold-medal squad that narrowly defeated Australia, 8-7, in the championship game, but this time was different as the US women crushed each of their opponents by at least nine goals.
In pool play, the U.S. went 4-0 to claim the top seed in the championship bracket and opened with an impressive 17-7 win over England. In its second game, the U.S. was unrelenting in a 19-2 victory over Wales. Australia was no match in a rematch of the 2009 title game as it fell, 18-9, to the Americans in Team USA’s third pool-play game. The U.S. women completed a perfect run through pool competition on a 13-2 triumph over Canada to hold all momentum heading into single-elimination games.

The U.S. Women’s National Team rode the momentum of an 11-goal first half run to begin the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup with a 17-7 victory over England on Thursday. Ten players tallied goals in a balanced attack by the Americans.
England scored first, as Laura Merrifield (University of Maryland) finished a shot on the doorstep just 47 seconds into the contest. From there, the U.S. took over, scoring 11 straight goals over a 21:19 period in the first half to take a commanding 13-2 lead into halftime. The U.S. defense was led by goalie Devon Wills (Dartmouth College), who allowed just two goals while making five saves in 35-plus minutes of action. Despite a second half surge from England, the U.S. was able to preserve the double-digit win.
Three players recorded a team-high four points each for the U.S., including Sarah Albrecht (Northwestern University), Katrina Dowd (Northwestern University) and Katie Rowan (Syracuse University). U.S. team midfielder Ally Carey (Vanderbilt University) scored two goals and added a game-high six draw controls to earn player of the match honors. Kristen Lafferty (University of Birmingham) paced England with three goals and one assist, while Merrifield added three goals.
The win puts Team USA atop Pool A with a 1-0 record heading into Saturday’s 4:30 p.m. ET matchup against Wales. The U.S. holds a perfect 6-0 mark against Wales in World Cup competition, with an average victory margin of more than 13 goals. The two teams last met in the 2005 World Cup in Annapolis, Md., with the U.S. winning 11-4.
