WILC 2015 – Day 7

(ONONDAGA NATION) Below is a recap of the four games played on Day Seven (Thursday) of the 2015 FIL World Indoor Lacrosse Championship.

QUARTERFINAL: Israel 13, Czech Republic 12

Israel edged the Czech Republic 13-12 to advance to the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship semifinals, where it will play Canada at 4:30 p.m. at Onondaga Arena.

Israel is one of six teams taking part in the WILC for the first time.

Noah Miller’s third goal with just under 10 minutes left that put the Israelis up by two proved to be just enough. The Czech’s rallied from an early 5-0 first-quarter deficit to pull within 8-7 early in the third quarter, but could never take the lead.

The teams swapped goals, including Miller’s final tally, and Košťál Jiří scored for the Czech Republic, then Israel held on for the final 3:11 to secure the win.
