The Canadian National Lacrosse Team won the Gold Medal at the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, Colorado in a monumental win over powerhouse Team USA. This marked the 3rd time in history that the Canadians topped the US to win the Gold!
Jason Noble receives a pass just over the midfield line, uncharted territory for a defenseman. He looks up to a barrage of incoming defenders and immediately knows what they are thinking. A quick panic comes over Noble as he nears the goalie — “Should I shoot it?” he thinks to himself. A familiar voice commands, “Shoot it Jason!”
The Canadians have bounced back from the loss to Team USA on opening night to remain undefeated since and propelling themselves back in to the gold medal game. Thursday night in front of 7,889 fans, Canada stepped their game up in preparation for the rematch.

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! In honor of the FIL World Championships kicking off on July 10th in Denver, CO we dug up a little video from the 2010 World Championships in Manchester, England, featuring the USA and Canada. Both teams read like a who’s who of lacrosse, and the goals scored were insane. There’s just no other way to score on defenses and goalies that good!
In honor of Canada naming their 24-man roster, we’re showing off what many people believe to be the greatest lacrosse game of all-time: USA vs Canada in 1998. Both the US and Canada were absolutely loaded with talent.

The Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association (CUFLA) is a really interesting collegiate lacrosse league! It’s not like NCAA lacrosse, in that is is club, but is also the best college field ball being played North of the Border. Jack Hallett, a student at Guelph, followed around the team for the year, and documented the entire season. Now he has put together a 40 minute documentary, and it’s stellar!
The lacrosse world championships traveled down under to Perth, Australia in 1990 but playing in the Southern Hemisphere didn’t do much to change the pecking order for national teams. Canada and the US obviously matched up for a great game and the video picks up the play with the US up 5-2 early in the second quarter.
The University of Vermont invited Bishop’s University down from Canada for a fall ball game that took place on UVM’s homecoming weekend. Bishop’s is located in Lennoxville, Quebec, and is a member of CUFLA (the Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association). It is about 2 and a half hours from Lennoxville to Burlington, VT.
I’m not saying that Canadian players are always one-handed players, but more often than not they have a true strong hand, and a weaker hand. With Brent Noseworthy, that might be true as well, but I’m having a hard time telling which one is which! Is he a lefty or a righty? Honestly, I can’t really tell.
