US Lacrosse has added midfielder Joe Walters (Maryland) to the U.S. men's national senior team roster for the Duel in Denver exhibition game Sept. 8. The addition of Walters rounds out the 25-player Team USA squad that will face Team Canada at 9 p.m. at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

With the United States' 10-7 win over Canada on Thursday night, the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships are underway in the Denver suburbs. Team USA, which defeated its neighbor to the north for the gold medal at the 2010 world championships, is looking for its second straight crown and 10th overall in the event, held every four years. While it's likely that the title game July 19 will be another U.S.-Canada matchup -- the teams have played in every gold-medal contest since 1998 -- a couple of squads could challenge them.  First and foremost are the Iroquois, who are led by five members of the Thompson family.
