Iroquois Nationals play the waiting game by Neil Becker, Sports Writer

There is no questioning the loyal fan support deservedly being showered on the Iroquois Nationals.

Numerous Six Nations fans and family have sacrificed sleep in staying up late rooting on their boys while watching them via the internet compete from Denver in World Lacrosse Championships action.

Heading into Tuesday night’s big test against the defending gold medal USA champions the Nationals have been giving their fan-base reason to stick their chest out in pride as they won three out of their first four games in defeating England (15-4), Japan (24-9) and Australia (12-10) before losing a much talked about game 9-8 against Canada.

Facing their biggest test and with first place in the Blue Division hanging in the balance Team USA who are two time defending champions took on the Iroquois Nationals and after waiting out a weather delay managed to capture top spot courtesy of an 18-5 win which brings a first round playoff bye.

Meanwhile if Iroquois had dealt the USA their first loss then that would have resulted in a three way tie with Canada being the third team with ties being settled by tie breakers.

Playing in front of a sold out enthusiastic crowd Team USA took command early and never looked back as they scored the game’s first 10 goals.

The Iroquois Nationals who were badly outshot 50-14 got a three goal performance from Miles Thompson along with singles to Jeremy Thompson and Zach Miller.

Now it’s time for the Iroquois Nationals to play the waiting game in finding out where they will end up being seeded.
