NCAA Lacrosse: Denver Men’s Lacrosse Scrimmages Team Canada’s World Cup Squads, Falling 14-10 To Team Red And 22-6 To Team White


Denver Men's Lacrosse vs Team Canada

The University of Denver men’s lacrosse team took on Team Canada’s Red and White squads in a fall ball scrimmage on Saturday evening at the Demske Sports Complex at Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y. The Pioneers took on Team Red first, falling 14-10, before taking on Team White to close out the day, falling 22-6.

The scrimmage served as an evaluation for the 51-man Team Canada roster as it prepares for the 2014 FIL World Championships in Denver.

“It was a great experience overall,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “The first game was a very good demonstration of how good we can be. The second game helped us find out how far we have to go to be a great team. We thank the Canadians for this wonderful opportunity.

Denver began the day with a scrimmage against the Team Canada White squad, jumping out to an early 4-2 lead in the first quarter off goals from two goals from senior Bailey Dodds (Eden Prairie, Minn.), and one each from freshman Max Planning (Alexandria, Va.) and senior Tyler Simmons (Belvedere, Calif.)

Freshman Dallas Bridle (Orangeville, Ontario) scored to start the second quarter to put the Pioneers up 5-2 and after a score from the Reds, sophomore Colin Woolford (Norwalk, Conn.) made it 6-3 with his first of the day.

The Reds added two more goals prior to halftime to cut into the Pioneers’ lead, 6-5. Freshman Tyler Pace (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) made it 7-5 to start the third quarter, but the Reds answered with two goals to tie the game at 7-7.

The Reds added another and on the ensuing face-off, sophomore transfer Jack Bobzien (Littleton, Colo.) tied it all at 8-8, scoring a transition goal. Bobzien added another with a minute left in the third quarter to lift the Pioneers to 9-8.

Following four straight goals by the Reds, Simmons snapped the scoring rally with his second of the game to bring the Pioneers to within two. The Reds continued to put the pressure on, scoring two more goals, while the Pioneers were only able to net one, falling 14-11.

Current Pioneer and senior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontario) played for the Reds alongside former Pioneer Mark Matthews.

In the second game of the day, the Pioneers took on the Whites, falling behind 4-0 early in the first quarter. Junior Connor Pagnani (Nashville, Tenn.) scored from outside to put Denver on the scoreboard at 4-1.

Pace made it 4-2 with his first of the scrimmage, second of the day; however, the Whites scored twice more to end the first quarter 6-2.

Junior Sean Cannizzaro (Cazenovia, N.Y.) scored for the Pioneers early in the second quarter to cut the deficit to three, but the Whites once again extended their lead with two more goals to make it 8-3. Sophomore Jack Pruitt (Sammamish, Wash.) ended the scoring onslaught with his first goal of the day to pull within four.

The Whites then strung seven straight goals together to take a 15-4 lead before Cannizzaro snapped the streak with his second of the day to make it 15-5. After a goal by the Whites, freshman Zach Miller (Steamburg, N.Y.) scored his first of the day late in the third quarter to make it 16-6.

International Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of The “2013 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup”


2013 FIL Women's Lacrosse World Cup

“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.

“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.
