Goals scored in Pool A #RWLC17 after five days of play

The Women’s Lacrosse World Cup is being played at the Guildford Sports Park.

The official web site for the tournament has a Results and Stats page.

The six teams in Pool A of the tournament have all played four games.

Monday is a rest day in Pool A. The table going into the rest day is:

223 goals have been scored in Pool A.

Winners of games have scored 166 goals (86 first half, 80 second half) and losers 57 (30 first half, 27 second half) 

I have been monitoring when goals are scored in five-minute time intervals. So far, the pattern is:

Note that winners are able to lift their performance at the start of the second half. In game 42, USA v Canada, USA scored six times in ten minutes at the start of the second half.

Goals Scored at #RWLC17

The Women’s Lacrosse World Cup is underway at the Guildford Sports Park.

The official web site for the tournament has a Results and Stats page.

I am using these data to compile my record of goal scoring in Pool A at the tournament prior to play off games in the Championship Division.

My secondary data are available here.

All six teams in Pool A (Australia, Canada, England, Scotland, United States and Wales) have played their first games.

After Day 2, 54 goals have been scored in 3 games. 34 First Half goals, 20 Second Half goals.

Winning teams have scored 40 goals (23 First Half, 17 Second Half). Losing teams have scored 14 goals (11 First Half, 3 Second Half).

The tournament web site gives the time of each goal scored. I am going to look at goal scoring in 5 minute time intervals to identify the flow of games for winning and losing teams.

After two days and 3 games the graph looks like this:

There are three Pool A games on Day 3 of the tournament.
