#LMLive: USA Tops England With Four-Goal Comeback

by Stephen Bailey | | Twitter

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Nick Rose stood on his head early, but over time the USA's barrage of shots wore down the England goalie.

After trailing 7-5 late in the second quarter, the Americans reeled off four straight goals and eight of the next nine en route to a 13-9 win in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships on Monday.

Garrett Thul paced the USA (2-1) with three goals and two assists while Casey Powell recorded two goals and four assists in his tournament debut. Jake Henhawk continued his solid play turning away 24-of-33 shots from the English.

Tyson Roe and Cole Shafer led England (0-2) with a pair of goals apiece, but it was Rose who stole the show early, denying the USA on a slew of excellent chances. He finished with 48 saves out of 61 shots on goal.

After the USA jumped out to a 3-0 lead, England scored four straight goals and led as late as 7-6 30 seconds after halftime.

But one goal in the second half before garbage time wasn't enough to keep the English in the game once the USA broke through against Rose.

The United States next faces Canada (1-0) on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. while England returns to action against the Iroquois on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
