England lose out as US lift International Cup

The US triumph over England to win the International Cup on home turf, while England's women storm to an impressive victory

A NEAR-CAPACITY crowd watched the US defeat England 8.5-6 in the International Cup yesterday at Grand Champions in Florida. 

The England team of Tom Morley, Jack Richardson, Max Routledge and Richard Le Poer began the match down by half a goal due to handicap difference, and never managed to quite catch the US. Despite renewed determination and several goals in the second half, England had to settle for defeat.

The win meant the US side of Marc Ganzi, Carlitos Gracida, Nic Roldan and Jeff Hall avenged their narrow defeat to England at their last meeting, in the St. Regis Cup in May.

Four-goaler Nina Clarkin led the England women's side, also featuring Claire Donnelly, Sarah Wiseman and Hazel Jackson to a 7-2 win over the US in the first match of the day.

The England foursome displayed excellent teamwork to lead from the start, over a struggling US side of Melissa Ganzi, Gillian Johnston, Sunny Hale and Tiffany Busch. Wiseman scored four goals to be named  most valuable player.
