Syracuse, N.Y. — Canada continues to rule the international box.

It was a sell-out crowd for the games yesterday.  The Dome has 50,000 seats,but obviously there are less people.  I guess the tickets available for watching lacrosse were sold out!

Team Canada defeated the Iroquois 12-8 Sunday afternoon in the Carrier Dome in the tournament title game to extend its domination in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. Canada has won every gold medal in the history of the event and has never lost a game during that period.

Curtis Dickson scored four goals to pace Canada, which led for most of Sunday’s game.
The Iroquois closed the gap to 8-7 and produced a rise out of the Carrier Dome crowd of 10,421 when Lyle Thompson drove to the cage, leapt high and threw the ball into the right corner.

But two straight goals from Canada — an easy breakaway from Steve Priolo and a nice feed from Mark Matthews to Stephan Leblanc in an unsettled situation propped Canada’s lead back to 10-7 with 9:57 left in the game.

Canada led the Iroquois 6-5 at halftime on the strength of two Curtis Dickson goals. The game was as evenly played as the score suggested. Each team scored twice on power-play chances.

Iroquois coach Rich Kilgour said Friday night that his team was undersized compared to Canada, which surrounds its goalies with big, strong bodies. Going inside on Team Canada requires guts and the understanding that punishment awaits from body and stick checks. Getting anything close to the crease for the Iroquois was a game-long challenge.

It is Monday. . . off to the food pantry !
