Haudenosaunee and Puerto Rico claim gold at PALA Sixes Cup

The Haudenosaunee won the women’s competition while Puerto Rico won the men’s competition at the PALA Sixes Cup in Kingston, Jamaica on Saturday.

The Haudenosaunee capped off a dominant run in the tournament with a 22-11 win over a previously unbeaten Puerto Rico team in the gold medal match. The Haudenosaunee finished with a 5-0 record and won by at least 11 goals in every game. Fawn Porter led the offensive effort with five goals, with four goals from Sierra Cockerill in support.

Puerto Rico took home the silver medal after finishing with a 5-1 record over three days.

In the men’s competition, Puerto Rico showed its mettle with a convincing 22-15 win over Mexico in the gold medal match. The win was a strong reversal of the overtime win for Mexico in the two teams’ meeting on day one. Joshua Balarcel, Matthew Chlastawa and Brennan Banks each had four goals.

After falling in the opening game, Puerto Rico ran off a four-game winning streak en route to the title with comfortable wins over Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

Mexico took home the silver medal with a final record of 3-2 with wins over Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic.

Argentina finished an impressive showing in Kingston with a 16-14 win over Peru to take home the bronze medal in the women’s competition. Argentina trailed by three in the second half but finished the game on a 6-1 run. Gretta White had four goals and Mercedes Oneil had three.

The Dominican Republic claimed the bronze medal in the men’s competition with a hard-fought 22-21 battle over Panama, flipping the result on day one that was a two-goal win in the other direction. The game-winning goal came in overtime for the Dominican Republic thanks to Christian Perez, his fourth goal of the game.

In placement play, Mexico claimed fifth place in the women’s competition with a 17-9 win over Jamaica. The U.S. Virgin Islands claimed sixth place after Jamaica could not compete in its final game.
