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...

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.

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.

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.
