News and information about the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships brought to you by Brine.
Last night's All-Star Game for Major League Lacrosse was a low scoring event, but nonetheless spectacular and memorable. 10,327 fans packed historic Harvard Stadium from far and wide to catch a glimpse of Team USA on their road to Denver. The game was a low scoring affair, but that was almost to be expected when playing international rules and when one team is seriously gearing up for the World Stage. The final score was 10-9 in favor of the USA, but the game didn't appear to be going their way the entire tome.

The Iroquois Nationals have released the team's 27-man roster for the upcoming FIL World Lacrosse Championships to be held in Denver, Colorado, from July 10 to July 19.
Other than the USA, Canada Lacrosse is the only national program to ever claim an FIL World Championship. Canada won titles in 1978 and 2006, and has never finished outside of the Top 3. In 1967, 1982, and 1994 Canada finished third, behind Australia.

With the World Championships just over a month away, it's high time to start looking at some of the top contenders a lot deeper. While the US and Canada are still the clear cut favorites, and Australia has had a lock on the bronze (or silver) since the WLC inception in 1967, the Iroquois Lacrosse program seems to be putting forth a really competitive team for 2014, and we're all curious to see if they can do better than a 4th place finish, which is their best finish ever at a world field lacrosse championship.
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!
