COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - The consensus among fans and analysts heading into Saturday's Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship final between Canada and the United states was that the Americans, dominant all tournament long, were the clear-cut favorites.  Canada, seeking its first gold since 2006, needed to win faceoffs and control possession to keep the ball away from Team USA's stacked offense, which came into the championship game...

Letter writer Kyle Lagratta's response ("Lacrosse a victim of stereotyping," Feb. 29) to Susan Reimer 's column regarding the "unfounded argument" against the sport of lacrosse prompts me to respond. Our youngest son played organized lacrosse for several years before entering college. He was extremely fortunate to benefit from the guidance by an outstanding coach at a Division III school in the Northeast. We witnessed our son mature into a well-rounded adult by the time of his graduation due to the influence of a coach who emphasized leadership and teamwork.

When the Canada and U.S. tangle at 9 tonight, they'll reignite a rivalry that offers pretty much everything a sports fan could want -  history, excitement, emotion and incredibly high stakes. When these two teams opened the FIL World Championships on July 10 in Commerce City, Colo., Canada jumped out to a 3-0 lead while holding the U.S. scoreless for the game's first 25 minutes. An eight-goal outburst over the next 20 minutes created separation from which the Canadians couldn't rebound.

When I began covering college women's lacrosse, Maryland owned the sport. The Terrapins were in the process of winning seven straight NCAA championships and I watched them win the last five, including a thrilling 14-13 overtime win against Georgetown in 2001. After that, the Terps fell off the pace. The sport grew and the talent pool spread all around the country. A new power rose at Northwestern and soon threatened to surpass the Terps' title streak. But in May, the Terps made sure that wouldn't happen.

Senior defenseman John Lade, who held Johns Hopkins senior attackman Chris Boland scoreless on 0-for-3 shooting and forced five turnovers last Saturday, might draw Wildcats junior attackman Kevin Cunningham (20 goals, 13 assists)

The U.S. team pretty quickly threw out any concerns about a letdown game in the semifinals of the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships on Thursday night in Commerce City, Colo. Team USA, coming off a dominant 18-5 win over the Iroquois Nation on Tuesday night, easily could have looked past an Australia team it beat, 16-7, in pool play. Instead, the United States jumped out to a 7-0, first-quarter lead on the Aussies and never slowed, winning, 22-3, at Dick's Sporting Goods Park to advance to Saturday night's gold-medal game against Canada for the fifth straight time.

Sam Farrell was not necessarily looking for a coaching job when she was hired in January to lead the South River girls lacrosse team, just weeks after former Seahawks coach  Kim McNemar stepped down. Farrell, a Severna Park graduate who played at Florida, said Thursday she wasn't necessarily looking for her most recent opportunity, either. After one season coaching South River, Farrell decided this week to join San Diego-based Mad Dog Lacrosse as a camp director and coach.

1. Matt Abbott is the U.S. team's most important player One of the strongest reactions to the U.S. team's 23-man roster was the lack of a third short-stick defensive midfielder, and that criticism was exacerbated by  injuries to Dan Burns and Kyle Harrison in pool play . What it also shone a bright spotlight on is how consistent and reliable Matt Abbott is as a player. So many times, he's come in off the wings of a faceoff to make a tough ground ball look easy or pulled out of a so-so transition opportunity to calmly flip the ball to an on-subbing midfielder.

The North and South squads entered Saturday afternoon's Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic tied at 4 wins all-time. Maybe it was only fitting, then, that the ninth edition went to overtime. The South, which trailed by as many as seven goals at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium, didn't lead for a single second of regulation Saturday, but it got a goal from Sykesville's Mikey Wynne just 49 seconds into the extra frame to seal the 17-16 comeback win. "We had a ton of confidence," Wynne, a Notre Dame recruit, said afterward.

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.
