Hong Kong’s women’s team suffered a second defeat at the lacrosse World Cup on Friday, losing 11-4 to seventh-ranked indigenous Canadian nation Haudenosaunee in England.

Carrie Lam Ka-wai and Hui Ka-hei scored early in the first half for Hong Kong at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford, but with Haudenosaunee scoring six answered goals, Travis Taylor’s side fell 8-2 behind at half-time.

Alexandra Tsai and Katherine Barker added further goals for Hong Kong in the second half as Taylor’s side finished strongly against a side who were always set to be their toughest test in pool B.

Lam scored four goals on Thursday as Hong Kong lost their opener 12-10 to Italy.

Hong Kong continue their campaign on Sunday against Switzerland.
