Mostly Jewish American ex college players. They took some Israeli Professional Lacrosse player as well. We are up 8-0 about 1/2 way through the 2nd quarter.

1st year competing, and they are guarenteed a top 8 place in the world cup. There is a ton of Jewish American talent, they should be able to keep up a top 10 ranking. (USA and Canada are 1 2 and there is a gulf between them and 3rd place) Speaking of which, they play Australia tonight. we think they would be a 2 goal dog if there was a line. Here is the summary from the last game:

COMMERCE CITY, COLORADO -- Hank Altschuler and the Israeli defense shut out 6th-ranked Germany for three quarters on Tuesday, as the Israel men's national team secured a berth in the FIL World Championship Quarterfinals at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Israel (5-0) jumped out to a 4-0 lead after one quarter, an 8-0 advantage at halftime, and a 10-0 score after three quarters, as the blue-and-white have rolled through the competition in their world debut.

Ari Sussman scored three goals and two assists -- he leads the tournament in points with 30 (16 goals, 14 assists) -- while Matthew Cherry (four goals, one assist) and Noach Miller (three goals) also had big days.

Altschuler (60:00, 7 saves, 0 GA) earned the win in goal, while Reuven Dressler (20:00, 3 saves, 1 GA) also saw action.

Benjamin Smith (one goal, one assist), Yochanan Katz (one goal, one assist), Kyle Bergman (one goal, one assist), Cody Levine (one goal) an Daniel Leventhal (one goal) also cracked the scoresheet for Team Israel.

Andrew Rullan (one goal) and duBois-Reymond Hen (one assist) connected on the lone German goal. Philipp Maas (60:00, 10 GA, 12 saves) and Florentin Turowski (20:00, 5 GA, 0 saves) shared time in goal.

Israel, who can finish no worse than 8th place, will compete in the quarterfinals on Wednesday at 7:00 PM Local / 4:00 AM (Thursday) Israel, against the 4th-place finisher of the Blue Group -- either Australia, Canada or the Iroquois Nationals (but widely believed to be Australia) -- pending Tuesday's results. The quarterfinals will be broadcast live on ESPN3.

Since the "play in" format was established in 2006, higher seeded "Blue Group" teams are 6-0 all-time against their challengers.

Australia, who has medaled in all 11 prior World Championships, finished third in 2010, 2006, 2002 and 1998.

Additional caps: Richard Cheifitz, Casey Cittadino, Lee Coppersmith, Adam Crystal, Matthew Flapan, Harrison Freid, Michael Grosz, Seth Mahler, Mathew Markman, Cole McCormack, Jonathan Rathauser, Eytan Saperstein, Jacob Silberlicht

Israel ended up in 7th place for the tournament. not bad considering this was their first lacrosse tourney. Hopefully in 4 years they can improve on their excellent accomplishments.
