Twenty nations were in action at the World Lacrosse Women's Championship today in the United States as the event completed its second day with a bumper 10-match schedule at Towson University in Maryland.

England were in control from start to finish and dominated the draw control stats 14-6.

Megan Whittle was superb for England with five goals from seven shots along with four draw controls.
