From the Vault: Haudenosaunee takes on the USA at the 2019 Men’s Box Championship

In From the Vault, World Lacrosse is highlighting classic games from its world championships.

Faced with missing the championship game of the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship for the first time in tournament history, the Haudenosaunee rallied in the final quarter for a 9-7 victory over the United States in the 2019 semifinals in Langley, British Columbia. 

The United States, aiming to make the championship game for the first time in box lacrosse history, took a 6-5 lead on Matt Rambo’s goal to open the fourth quarter. The Haudenosaunee responded with three straight goals from Adam Bomberry, Kyle Jackson, and Cody Jamieson.  

Gale Thorpe pulled the USA back to within a goal with 7:50 to play, but Jordan Durston iced the game on a goal with 2:35 left, sending the Haudenosaunee to its fifth straight gold medal game against Canada. Jamieson, the MVP of the tournament, led the Haudenosaunee with two goals in the big win. 

The Haudenosaunee ended up falling to Canada in the championship game, 19-12, marking its fifth straight silver medal at the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships since 2003.
