Iroquois Nationals secure bronze medal at lacrosse tournament

The Iroquois Nationals won the bronze medal at the World Junior Field Lacrosse Championships in Finland.

The team made history by defeating the U.S. in an early game. But they lost to Canada and then to the U.S. before triumphing over England by a score of 18-1.

“I’ve played on several championship teams and I can tell you that no one plays lacrosse like the Iroquois Nationals. Their defeat of the USA was the best game of the tournament, hands down, and we’re all so honored they were here," organizer Samuli Harala told Indian Country Today.

Three Iroquois players were named to the 2012 World Lacrosse Team, ICT reported.
