International Lacrosse: US Lacrosse Announces ESPN To Broadcast “2014 FIL Men’s Lacrosse World Championships” On July 10-19 In Denver, CO

2014 FIL Men's Lacrosse World Championships on ESPN

US Lacrosse has announced that ESPN will carry the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse Men’s World Championship across its networks. As many as 40 nations are expected to participate in the event which takes place from July 10-19, 2014, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver and will be hosted by US Lacrosse.
ESPN will provide unprecedented coverage of the FIL World Championship, showing approximately 60 games across its networks and via ESPN3. The semifinals and championship game will be televised live on ESPNU, and all U.S. team games will be included in the package.
“Our partnership with ESPN will provide a global media platform for the sport of lacrosse that has never existed before,” said Bill Schoonmaker, chief operating officer for US Lacrosse. “They have a tremendous reach and their experience showcasing the sport is unmatched. We could not be more excited.”
“The World Championships will be an incredible opportunity for fans worldwide to see the best lacrosse in the world across ESPN platforms,” said Dan Margulis, ESPN Senior Director, Programming & Acquisitions. “ESPN is committed to lacrosse at the highest levels, and we’re excited to see the lacrosse community come together as the event returns to the U.S.”
The most recent world championship in 2010 from Manchester, England, had just one televised game in the United States. ESPNU aired the gold medal game between the United States and Canada, with the U.S. prevailing 12-10 to win the world championship. The 2014 event marks the first time since 1998 that the U.S. will host the FIL men’s world championship.
ESPN featured coverage from numerous US Lacrosse events in recent years, including this year’s Champion Challenge in January in Orlando which featured the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams and the reigning NCAA Division I men’s (Loyola) and women’s (Northwestern) national champions.

Team USA Women’s Lacrosse U-19 Defeats Japan 19-5 On Aug 4 In First Round Of The 2011 FIL Women’s U-19 World Lacrosse Championships

American midfielder Kayla Treanor scored back-to-back goals to open play, and Team USA never looked back as they raced to a 19-5 win over Japan in their first game of the 2011 FIL U19 Women’s World Cup.

The win over Japan gives the U.S. a 1-0 record at the tournament. They will face their next opponent, Canada, tomorrow at 3 p.m. local time.

The U.S. never trailed in the victory, and attacker Erin McMunn led all scorers with 6 goals. McMunn was named player of the match for her efforts, an unexpected gift on her 18th birthday.

“It feels great to get our first win. The girls played so well. It was a tough Japan team that kind of startled us in the beginning a little bit, but it was fun to see the girls make the adjustments and start to pull away from a very good team,” said American head coach Krystin Porcella.

Despite Treanor’s quick start, Team Japan’s zone defense disrupted the Americans’ rhythm in the first half. Japanese attacker Tamoko Takarada (3g) cut the score to 6-4 midway through the first period on an unassisted goal, prompting a time out.

“Japan was throwing some stuff at us we hadn’t seen yet, and they were doing a very good job of it, so I said ‘Let’s regroup here, and take a deep breath, and go out and play our style of lacrosse instead of playing into their game which is what they wanted us to do,’” said Porcella.

The Americans responded with eight unanswered goals, putting the match out of reach. Seven different players scored for Team USA, led by McMunn and with hat tricks from Treanor, Cortney Fortunato and Jennifer Cook. Madison Acton, Covie Stanwick and Taylor Trimble each added a single goal. Kelsey Duryea started in goal for the Americans and made four saves in the first half; Allie Murray relieved her at the break and added three saves.

Team USA Women’s Lacrosse U19 Team Prepares For First Game Against Japan In “2011 FIL Under-19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championship”

Gathered together at Sportpark Hannover, lacrosse players from all over the world waited for Hanover mayor Ingrid Lange to officially open the 2011 FIL Under-19 Women’s World Championship.

 In their hands, they clutched national symbols — a toy kangaroo for Australia,

inflatable dragons for Wales, flags for everyone — and clusters of pink and white balloons.

 Team USA will play their first game of the tournament Thursday at 5 p.m. local time against Japan.

Upon Lange’s declaration, the laxers released the balloons into the summer sky before a crowd of family and friends, marking an optimistic beginning to the fifth U19 world games. Twelve teams, an all-time high, are participating in the tournament, which is the first-ever FIL event to be held in Germany, a growing force in international lacrosse.

“We know that lacrosse is still globally quite small, but it’s growing faster than ever before,” FIL Women’s Director Shelley Maher told the crowd.

Streaming into the stadium, the teams sang national songs, pop hits and call-and-response cheers with their opponents. Rivalries were put on hold as the high-spirited teams took in the moment.
