US thumps Australia, 22-3, to advance to World Lacrosse Championships final

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - The giant of international lacrosse, the United States has plowed to the title game of the World Lacrosse Championships like a runaway freight train. The only remaining question is, will the Americans dominate from start to finish or crash at the ending?

"If we don't play our game, don't play well, we will be beaten," U.S. goalie Jesse Schwartzman of the Denver Outlaws said. "But the way we're controlling the faceoffs and dominating possessions right now, it's going to be tough."

Schwartzman spent more time watching than preparing to make a save Thursday in the first WLC semifinal at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

The Americans breezed to a 22-3 victory over Australia to make it 12-for-12 in advancing to the WLC title game, which is Saturday.

Substitute David Lawson led the U.S. with six points (four goals) and starting attack Brendan Mundorf and first-line midfielder Paul Rabil each had five points on three goals.
