U.S. women’s lacrosse defeats England at FIL World Cup

The U.S. Women’s Lacrosse team easily defeated England 18-1 in the third game of the FIL Women’s World Cup on Saturday.

The U.S. is now 3-0 in the FIL World Cup after defeating Scotland and Australia earlier in the tournament.

The U.S. wasted no time getting things rolling against the host country, striking twice in the opening seven minutes. The Americans then held an 8-0 lead at halftime, and the match was well in control.

In the second half, the U.S. prevented any English comeback hopes, as the hosts were unable to score until eight minutes into the second half, when the U.S. led 10-1.

The U.S. will continue group play on Sunday when it faces Canada.
