(Edinburgh, Scotland) It’s like deja-vu, all over again on day three of the 2015 FIL Rathbones U19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championship. Lydia Sutton scores her second game-winning golden goal in double overtime in as many nights — this time against England (2-1) to seal an 11-10 victory for the Cardiac Canadians (2-1).
Just like the previous night, the game was tied in regulation, this time 7-7. Both teams scored in the first overtime, the first being a goal off a free position shot from Feenie Ruiz at 0:58 putting England up by one, and the second from Canada’s Megan Kinna with just 0:13 left in overtime. And just like the previous night, the Canadians apparently had their opponent exactly where they wanted them because two minutes into the second overtime, Team Canada Golden Girl Lydia Sutton scored her second golden goal¹ in consecutive games. It was another phenomenal display of women’s lacrosse from both England and Canada. Erica Evans (3G 1A 4PTS) had another strong performance for Canada and Player of the Match Feenie Ruiz and Alex Drewe led England in scoring with two goals each.
In other action, Player of the Match (POM), Arianna Guppy (4G 1A 5PTS) scored a golden goal of her own with 1:56 remaining in double overtime to carry Wales (1-2) over New Zealand (1-2) 11-10. Alys Cowx (3G 1A 4PTS) and Molly Edwards (2G 2PTS) added to the Wales offense. Tegan Edmonds (2G 1A 3PTS), Ella Ransley and Paige Salthouse all added a pair of goals for New Zealand. POM Sina John (4G 1A 5PTS) Insa Kriwall (4G 4PTS) and Stella Gnaedig (3G 3PTS) led Germany to a 13-6 win against the Czech Republic. Sára Schlitzová (3G 1A 4PTS) led the Czechs in scoring.
