Denver’s Fingerprints on World Lacrosse Championship Opener

USA and Canada opened up the World Lacrosse Men’s Championship in San Diego last night. It was a DU homecoming of sorts with TD Ierlan, Danny Logan, and Trevor Baptiste playing for the US. Newly minted Denver head coach Matt Brown led Team Canada which featured former DU star at attack Wesley Berg, who famously scored the overtime snipe against Notre Dame in the semifinals to send the Pioneers to their first-ever national title game in 2015, as well as current Pio Casey Wilson. Following a knotted first half, Team USA stymied the Canucks in the second half to forge a 7-5 win.
