Canada wins Brogden Cup, Team Iroquois wins I-Cup
Canada defeated the United States 19-3 and 14-7 to capture the 2011 Brogden Cup this past weekend in Winter Haven, Fla.
This series is played between the top teams in North America, and enables players at the U19 level to experience the best International field lacrosse competition on an annual basis. The Brodgen Cup dates back a generation before Major League Lacrosse and was formally played between the top post-collegiate club teams/players from the United States and Canada.
Another event during this weekend of lacrosse in Winter Haven was the inaugural I-Cup, which pitted some of the best international and national U19 field lacrosse teams against each other.
The Kanienkehaka Krunch captured the title, beating the Boca Whalers 15-9.
En route to the final, the Krunch, who were the Iroquois representative in the four-team tournament beat Team Evolve, Canada's representative.
