Towson, MD—A nail-biter of a game, England put up a fight in the semi-final match-up of the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship. Canada pulled through with an 11-9 win.
“England played a tough game, and kept us on our toes,” said coach Scott Teeter. “But the game is over, and we’re looking ahead to Saturday, to playing for gold. We have work to do, but we’ll give our best.”
Erica Evans (4) and Aurora Cordingley (3) led the team in goals, with Nicole Perroni following close behind with two.
“We believed before the tournament started that we’d get here,” said captain Dana Dobbie. “And now we are. There’s no better feeling then to be able to represent Canada at the gold medal game.”
Canada won 16 draw controls, and Kam Halsall stopped seven free-position shots.
Canada will compete against the undefeated USA for gold on Saturday, July 9 at 12 p.m. ET.
