The U.S. women’s lacrosse team defeated Canada 17-3 in the fourth group stage game of the FIL Women’s World Cup on Sunday.
Both teams entered the match with 3-0 marks thus far at the World Cup, but on Sunday, it was the U.S. that showed it was the far better team.
Despite the lopsided final score, the match started off looking like it was going to be tight, especially after a Canada goal nine minutes into the match to cut an early 2-0 U.S. lead in half. But after each team scored one more time, the U.S. opened the match up, scoring four unanswered goals before halftime.
Then, in the second half, the U.S. picked up right where it left at the end of the first half, scoring 10 unanswered goals before Canada was finally able to find the back of the net for the final score of the game.
Alex Aust led the U.S. with three goals, while Ally Carey, Taylor Cummings, Brooke Griffin, Marie McCool, Kelly Rabil and Michelle Tumolo each found the back of the net twice for the U.S.
