[LACROSSE INTER] HERITAGE CUP Recap

Heritage Cup: 🇨🇦 19 🇺🇸 6

Going into the 2017 version of the Heritage Cup, Canada was a heavy favorite.
They showed why by easily beating Team USA in Hamilton Otario Saturday, 19-6.
Curtis Dickson, Shawn Evans, Dan Dawson, Dhane Smith, Mark Matthews, etc. were too much for Team USA.

US Lacrosse is taking a more active role in Box Lacrosse and this is just a starting point for preparation for the 2019 World Championships. You have to take a couple of positives from the game for Team USA ... 

On offense Joe Resatarits played a solid game on the right side. Tom Schreiber also put up a hat trick. Schreiber looked a little rusty to me, but make no mistake, he is the best offensive player on Team USA.

Paul Rabil and Rob Pannell also played offense on the right side. Neither has played box in recent years and looked rusty against Canada's best.

Kieran McCardle, Brett Queener and Blaze Roirdan manned the left side. I would have liked to see Connor Fields, hopefully he will remain with Team USA. He is a duel citizen, and is trying out for the Team Canada outdoor set up. If he plays for Canada he may forfeit his US eligibility.

In transition Team USA is far behind Canada

Canada controlled the Face Off game with Jordan MacIntosh and won most GB battles in general. Team USA must show significant improvement this area. Joel White and Liam Byrnes showed potential. Both play for the NLL Champion Georgia Swarm as well as still being in the running for Team USA outdoor team.

All three rostered goalies saw action. Many times they found themselves one on one with the Canadian shooters.

There are a few things the US can do to move things along quickly in their development. A 50 man roster should be announced who play in events throughout the year.  They could further refine the process by holding training camps throughout the year.

On a side note, the US needs to up the uniform game too! They need to come up with better sweaters. 

Hopefully some more US players will remain on NLL rosters as the league expands next year. Another thing US Lacrosse needs to do sooner than later, is develop a U17 & U19 set up. The players in the US need earlier exposure to top international competition.

Overall it is an eye opener to see just how far behind Team USA is in box lacrosse. I would say they are far behind the Iroquois. The talent and the box game is growing here. How long will it take to even the playing field with Canada

Thanks for the time.
