U.S. U-19 men lose lead, fall to Iroquois, 15-13
The Iroquois Nationals surprised the U.S. lacrosse team, 15-13, in pool play at the Federation of International Lacrosse U19 World Championships on Tuesday in Turku, Finland. The win was the Iroquois' first against the Americans in outdoor field competition at any level, and it came three days after the U-19 U.S. team lost for the first time since sanctioned international competition began in 1988, 11-9 in overtime to Canada. The United States led 5-2 Tuesday after the first quarter and 8-6 at halftime, but the Iroquois rallied to take a 9-8 lead less than four minutes into the second half and never trailed the rest of the game. The teams were tied at 11 and 13 in the fourth quarter before Hank Delisle scored the go-ahead goal with 5:35 left. Matthew Kavanagh and Mike Tagliaferri each scored a team-high four goals for the Americans, and each scored twice in the fourth quarter. Kavanagh also finished with two assists. The United States (2-2) will play a quarterfinal today against Germany, which beat Wales, 17-7, on Tuesday. A victory would set up a rematch with the Iroquois (3-1) in the semifinals. Top-seeded Canada (4-0) will face England or the Czech Republic in the semifinals.
