Canadian Lacrosse Association – WROCLAW, POLAND – Holly Lloyd and Dana Dobbie scored six points each, pacing Canada’s offence to a commanding 18-5 win over Japan at the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland.
Lloyd netted four goals and two assists in the win, while team captain Dobbie, who coaches her in the NCAA at Loyola University, added three goals and three assists.
“Japan is a very hard working team,” said head coach Scott Teeter. “We were able to match their work ethic and get another solid team win.”
Canada’s leading scorer Erica Evans finished the game with a hat-trick, bringing her World Games total to 11 points in two games.
Midfielders Megan Kinna and Quintin Hoch-Bullen contributed two goals apiece, while Kay Morissette was a perfect 12/12 in draw controls.
The win earned the Canadians, who finished the short preliminary round with a 2-0 record, the No. 2 seed and a spot in Saturday’s semi-finals. They will take on Australia, a team they’ve defeated three times in the past two weeks, including 8-6 in overtime of the 2017 FIL Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup semi-final.
World Cup champion United States claimed the No. 1 seed thanks to a 2-0 record and +28 goal differential, slightly better than Canada’s +18. They will battle Great Britain in the other semi-final.
“Every game we’ve played against Australia has been very close and competitive,” said Lloyd. “They always play with a lot of heart and grit, so we need to head into the game focused and ready to execute.”
Her coach adding: “Each time we played, both teams showed some different looks. It will be a battle.”
After acting as alternates during Canada’s silver medal run at the recent World Cup in England, Lloyd and fellow attacker Tessa Chad have made an immediate impact since joining the team for the World Games.
“Watching the girls play from the sidelines at the World Cup got Tessa and I really excited to get onto the field,” added Lloyd. “We have been lucky with how well our teammates have adjusted to having us added to the fold.”
Having the chance to represent Canada at this once-in-a-lifetime event is an experience the 2015 U19 world championship gold medalists are making the most.
“The World Games are unlike any World Cup that any of us have been to before,” said Lloyd. “The presence of other sports and hundreds of athletes, who come from every part of the world, competing at the highest level is so exciting.”
“We are beyond honoured to represent Canada on one of the sport’s biggest stages and hope to bring back another medal for our country.”
The semi-final game against Australia gets underway Saturday, July 29 at 7:00AM EST. It will be webcasted by The Olympic Channel on tape-delay the following morning (July 30) at 1:00AM EST.
