Towson, MD—Canada’s offense came out on top in the final game of the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship against Team Scotland, resulting in a resounding 20-1 victory.
“It was good to spread the ball around, and get all of our offense on the score sheet,” said head coach Scott Teeter. “It gave Cass [Eckert] some really solid playing time and save opportunities.”
Canada finished pool play 3-1, dropping only the opener against the USA. Monday’s game saw 11 goal scorers, including a five-goal, two-assist game from captain Erica Evans.
“Tonight’s game, and these first games in general, have gone well for us. Our chemistry as a team builds every game, which is what we want. These last weeks have been the first time we’ve played together, so we’re doing great and will just get better,” said Alie Jimerson, who finished the night with two goals and two assists.
Jillian McNaughton, the youngest member of the team, also made it onto the scoresheet. The midfielder, who is missing her high school graduation and prom to play at Worlds, started the game and scored late in the first.
Canada will face Puerto Rico, who finished second in Pool B with a record of 3-1, July 5 at 4 p.m. ET.
