Strong Canada squad defeats Iroquois 12-6 for 2014 Championship birth
Since falling to Team USA on opening night of the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships in Denver, Team Canada has remained undefeated and propelled themselves back in to the gold medal game.
Led by an electric Curtis Dickson, Canada was able to blow past the Iroquois Nationals 12 to 6, dominating in the 2nd half of the semi-final matchup on Thursday night. In front of 7,889 fans, Canada secured a rematch of the 2010 World Championship in Manchester, UK.
Dickson alone had 4 goals in the game, while 5 other Canadians scored one a piece. The defense was dominating as well, limiting Lyle Thompson to just 2 goals and four other Iroquois players to 1 each.
When Canada and Team USA met last Thursday night, the United States pulled out the win 10-7. With the initial jitters now behind them, Canada is ready to dethrone the Americans in their own house.
