Canada has steamrolled their opponents, pounding England 21-4 in their semi-final on Thursday night.
England jumped out to a 2-0 lead less than a minute in, but the defending champion Canadians weren’t rattled at all, scoring seven straight and never looking back as they coasted to a 21-4 win.
Canada had 11 different goal scorers, and Burrard Ben McIntosh had three goals and seven assists for 10 points, while his Maple Ridge WLA teammate Curtis Dickson had a hat trick and nine points.
The Iroquois Nationals rallied from a third quarter deficit to edge the United States 9-7 in their semi-final.
The bronze medal game between England and the Team USA will be played at 5 p.m.
Israel will play Finland for fifth place on Saturday, while Netherlands battles the Czech Republic in the seventh/eighth place game.
Israel scored 16 of the final 18 goals for a 22-7 victory over the Netherlands.
Again a Burrard player was prominent, as Jean-Luc Chetner’s four goals and 13 points led Israel.
