COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - Team Canada's 8-5 win over the United States on Saturday night capped an eventful 10 days for current and former University of Denver men's lacrosse players and staff at the 2014 FIL World Championships at Dicks Sporting Goods Park.
DU associate head coach Matt Brown, former Pioneers Jeremy Noble, Cameron Flint, Dillon Roy, Mark Matthews and Geoff Snider and senior Wesley Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) were all a part of the gold-winning squad.
2014 Inside Lacrosse Freshman of the Year Zach Miller (Steamburg, N.Y.) played with future Pioneer midfielder Brendan Bomberry (Vaughan, Ontario) and the Iroquois Nationals, earning the bronze medal at the event, the squad's top finish. Former Pioneer Andrew Lay also competed in the tournament, representing Team Japan in the competition.
