“2013 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup”: Team USA Women’s Lacrosse Defeats England 17-7


Team USA Women's Lacrosse vs England 2013

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.
