Canada won its second consecutive world lacrosse championship with a 15-14 overtime win over the Iroquois Nationals in Sunday's gold-medal game in Halifax.

Ottawa's Jeff Zywicki, who plays for the Rochester Rattlers of outdoor Major League Lacrosse, scored the winning goal 28 seconds into overtime.

It was the second consecutive time Canada defeated the Iroquois Nationals in the gold-medal game of the quadrennial tournament.

The teams also met in the final of the inaugural world indoor lacrosse championship in 2003 in Hamilton.

Earlier Sunday, the United States took the bronze medal with a 17-10 victory over England.
