The game against Stanford is one of four the U.S. will play over the Oct. 12-13 weekend, all against 2013 NCAA tournament teams. The others are Navy, Georgetown, and Towson. Last year, Stanford played host to the U.S. team. One connection between the two: Stanford head coach Amy Bokker is a U.S. assistant.

Stanford next will return home for its alumnae game (Oct. 19), and the Stanford Play Day, involving six schools in a series of short games on Oct. 26 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.  The fall season concludes Nov. 1 with an intrasquad matchup (4 p.m.).

Stanford is coming off a 14-6 season that featured the program’s first NCAA tournament victory – an 8-7 triumph over Notre Dame. Stanford won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament title for the eighth time in nine years.

Stanford’s Rachel Ozer and Anna Kim are returning IWLCA All-Region players and were among six Cardinal named to the All-MPSF team.

“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.

From the Longhouse to Homewood
Two distinct lacrosse cultures converged April 5 in Baltimore. On one side, you had upstart Albany and its hard-to-miss attack trio of Lyle, Miles and Ty Thompson. Lyle and Miles have braided ponytails that protrude from their helmets to the back of their jerseys — a visual reminder of the sport’s ancient roots as an Iroquois way of life. On the other side, you had Johns Hopkins, whose Homewood Field could be considered the spiritual center of the modern college game.By Joel Censer
