Florida lacrosse aces English test
On paper, the game between the Florida Gators' lacrosse team and the English National Team was just a ho-hum exhibition match. While England was using this as a game to practice for the FIL World Cup, the No. 5 Gators were warming up for their Feb. 11 season opener against the North Carolina in Chapel Hill. They were also looking forward to their first international competition in team history.
The Gators had all intentions to win with a statement, and they did in a 17-2 rout of the English team.
It turned from a fun exhibition game to a blowout in a matter of minutes in the first half. Florida’s impeccable defense held England without a shot for the first eight minutes. On top of that, Florida scored 10 consecutive goals until England could finally find the back of the net with five minutes to go in the first half.
