Fresh of a historic victory against Team USA, the Iroquois Nationals are 3-1 in the U19 World Lacrosse Championships in Turku, Finland taking place through July 21. They've earned themselves a bye for the semifinals round, and are right in the thick of things in the hunt for a gold medal. Indian Country Today Media Network's videographer, Gwendolen Cates, filed this video story from Turku, in which coaches and players talked about what it's like to play for their Nation on the global stage. The Nationals next match is Thursday, July 19 against the winner of Germany v. U.S.A. Setting up a possible rematch with U.S.A. which the Nationals won the first 15-13. The Nationals other games were a win against England 24-2, a loss to undefeated Canada 11-9, a win against Australia 17-9 and then the win against the U.S.A. If the Nationals win Thursday they will play in the finals on Saturday, July 21.
