In one of the most exciting games of the tournament at Justin Chiu Stadium, Madison Jones bagged the crucial goal in a 9-8 Welsh triumph after the match finished level at 8-8.
"It felt… I was just ecstatic,” said Jones.
"I just chucked my stick and I actually felt bad that I threw it that aggressively, but I was just so excited.
"But then I was like, okay, wait for the stick check and yes we got it.
"We all embraced, and it was honestly the best feeling ever.
"It was best game of lacrosse that I have ever played.”
