Think you could have played for Team USA in 1986? No offset heads, short shorts, questionable body checking and plenty of mud. We don’t think you had a chance, Jack! That team was dominant and they have an undefeated run through the 1986 World Championships to prove it.
Let’s set the scene. It’s the grand finale in Toronto at the 1986 ILF World Championship. Only four teams were competing in the week long event: England, Australia, Canada and the United States. Team USA was rolling over their opponents, while Canada staved off the other pair by three goals in each game.
Because who doesn’t want to watch more USA vs. Canada in lacrosse? Here’s the broadcast as seen from TSN in 1986.
