Australia Wins 4OT Marathon Over England on Day Four

Australia Wins 4OT Marathon Over England on Day Four

(Edinburgh, Scotland) The 2015 FIL Rathbones U19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championship is proving to be way too much for the faint of heart with yet another nail-biting sudden victory overtime game.

In today’s England-Australia nail-biter, it took four overtime periods to decide a winner. Knotted at 12 all at the end of regulation, Australia (2-2) and England (2-2) traded goals in the first overtime. Australia’s Ashtyn Hiron struck first at 3:59 in, and England’s Liv Wimpenny followed at 4:45. Then they played three consecutive three-minute overtimes tied at 13-13 before Ashtyn Hiron (2G 1A 3PTS) scored the golden goal¹ to win it for Australia 14-13 in the fourth overtime. Scoring leaders: Australia – Rebecca Lane (4G 3A 7PTS) and Stephanie Kelly (4G 1A 5PTS); England – Liv Wimpenny (3G 1A 4PTS), Tilly Shires (3G 1A 4PTS) and Alice Cranwell (3G 3PTS).

In other action, the Czech Republic (1-3) picked up its first victory with a 13-11 win over Finland (2-2). Japan (3-1) used a balanced offensive attack to snap Scotland’s (3-1) three-game winning streak with a 16-2 victory. Kyoko Kuwajima (3G 1A 4PTS) led the way along with five other Japanese players: Kaoru Hirano (2G 1A 3PTS), Sakura Hashizume (2G 1A 3PTS), with Asuka Noo, Narumi Nuku and Saki Sekiguchi (2G each).

Remaining winners were Germany over Colombia, Canada over Wales, New Zealand over the Republic of Korea and the United States over Israel.
