Canada and the U.S. will meet for Women's Lacrosse World Cup gold

It will be a matchup between the United States and Canada for the gold medal at the 2017 FIL Rathbones Women's Lacrosse World Cup.

That means plenty of Western New York connections at the event being held in Surrey, England.

Niagara head coach Wendy Stone is guiding Team USA, which won its semifinal over England on Thursday, 19-8. The Americans are 7-0 in the tournament.

Canada, headed by Canisius head coach Scott Teeter, advanced with an 8-6 win over Australia. Canisius player Erica Evans had two goals while Allie Jimerson (a Lake Shore grad who plays at Syracuse) had two goals and an assist. Canada is 6-1 with its only loss coming at the hands of the Americans, 17-3, in pool play.

Meanwhile, Jalyn Jimerson (Lake Shore) had a goal and an assist for the Haudenosaunee Nation in an 18-6 loss to the Czech Republic. The team, comprised of players of Six Nations, is making its first appearance in the World Cup. They will play Italy on Friday to decide the 11th and 12th position in the 16-team field.
