Canadian Lacrosse Association – GUILDFORD, ENGLAND – Canada’s offence was dominant in their quarterfinal game of the 2017 FIL Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup, pacing them to a 16-1 victory over New Zealand. They will now face-off against Australia in the semifinals, tomorrow at 10:00AM EST.

A six point performance from both Alie Jimerson, five goals and one assist, and Dana Dobbie, three goals and three assists, led the way for the Canadians.

Jimerson, the game’s most valuable player, was quick to acknowledge her teammates when asked about her impressive individual performance.

“Overall, it comes down to my teammates, they help me out a lot,” she said. “Most of the goals I scored were assisted. I may have had one or two drives, but again, they cleared space for me so I could go through.”

“It was a good team effort today.”

In all, nine players would find the score sheet in the win. Erica Evans got her second hat-trick of the tournament, while Taylor Gait continued her strong play, scoring two of her own. Kay Morissette, Danita Stroup and Crysti Foote rounded out the scoring, adding one goal apiece.

While they were outplayed by the Canadians in all aspects of the game, the New Zealand team competed hard and made some good plays on both sides of the ball, something Canada’s head coach certainly noticed.

“They are definitely a nation that is up-and-coming in the lacrosse world,” said Scott Teeter of his opponents from New Zealand. “They have a lot of speed and are pretty solid all around.”

“Over my years of experience at the World Cup, they are the team that has had the biggest growth.”

The Canadians need one more win to guarantee themselves a medal. They will first need to get by Australia, who despite losing to Canada 9-5 in pool play last week, proved they could compete.

“We opened up against Australia and it seems like it was a month ago,” he said. “We’re a different team now than we were on opening night. We’ve fine tuned our systems and we’re playing more team lacrosse, and it’s good to see.”

Tomorrow’s semi-final game against Australia, which starts at 10:00AM EST, will be shown live on the BBC Sports website (geographical restrictions may apply). It can also be streamed live from anywhere in Canada through a pay-per-view webcast provided by www.247.tv
