USA GOING FOR GOLD

So you’re going to wake up Saturday morning, that is if you’re even able to go to sleep Friday night what with the excitement of looking forward to tomorrows Cannons game and all, and you’re probably going to be crawling up the walls looking for ways to pass the time until the huge game at 7 at Harvard Stadium.

Have no fear, there is no better way to fill your lacrosse fix in the morning than by watching Team USA take on Canada at 11am EST live on ESPNU. Don’t get ESPNU? You can watch it on your computer live here but note that it does cost around 10 bucks. Well worth it if the Championship is anything like the two teams first meeting.

In that meeting Canada squeaked past the US 10-9, the American’s first defeat in pool play…ever. And of course Canada upset the US at the last World Championship in 2006, in the gold medal game.

Canada is coming off a 15-6 win over Australia while the US beat Japan in their semi-final match 20-5. The Yanks were led by the Cannons Paul Rabil who contributed 4 goals and 2 assists, Ryan Boyle’s 2 goals and Kyle Sweeney who has continued to find the back of the net, his 5th in 6 games.

The United States is the historically dominant international lacrosse super power, but they have lost to Canada the last two times they’ve played. This begs the question, who do you think should be favored?
