Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried
July 22, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Ricky Fried and the U.S. Women's National Team completed a record-breaking run at the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup, defeating Canada 19-5 on Saturday to claim a seventh world title.
"It was a long journey to this point and I'm not only proud of the players in how they played today, but in how much effort they have put into getting better," said Fried. "I don't think they always get enough credit for how hard they work."
Fried received his second World Cup gold and his first as a head coach after serving as an assistant in 2009.
The top-seeded U.S. squad struck first, but Canada kept it close early on. The second-seeded Canadians made it 3-1, but would get no closer, as Team USA responded with 11 of the game's next 12 goals to take a commanding 14-2 lead into halftime.
Canada pulled within ten after a pair of goals, but the U.S. attack quickly engineered a five-goal run to ensure the victory.
The U.S. (7-0) topped Canada (5-2) for a second time in the tournament, having already defeated the first-time World Cup finalists 13-2 in a pool play match on Tuesday. Team USA is now 10-0 against Canada in World Cup play, outscoring the Canadians 141-31 in those contests. The U.S. had faced Australia in the last four World Cup finals dating back to 1993 before Canada topped the Aussies 11-7 in Friday's semifinal round.
The Americans defeated the Haudenosaunee, 20-1, in the quarterfinals and downed England, 21-8, to advance to the World Cup Championship.
Team USA set program and tournament records for goals (127), goals per game (18.0) and margin of victory (13.2) The tournament saw the Americans outscore their opponents by a combined 127-34. This win was Team USA's seventh World Cup title, having reached the final in all nine World Cup tournaments.
