Kayla Treanor of Niskayuna scored her 14th goal of the tourn­ament to help the United States beat Australia, 14-11, in the title game of the Federation of Inter­national Lac­rosse Under-19 Women’s World Championship Saturday in Hannover, Germany.

Treanor also notched two goals in a 19-5 semifinal triumph over England. The midfielder added three assists with her 14 goals over eight games, all victories as the United States earned its fourth straight FIL gold medal and extended its winning streak at the quadrennial event to 28 games.

Treanor scored two goals and was named the Player of the Game after the United State team beat Canada, 13-6, in pool play. Team USA also beat Japan (19-5), Haud­enosaunee (15-3), England (16-5) and Australia (20-7) in pool games before topping Scotland (13-1) in the quarterfinals.

Team USA trailed Australia in the final, 6-3, and was tied at the half, 7-7, before putting together a five-goal burst. Team USA also beat Australia in the 2007, 2003 and 1999 gold medal games, and lost to Australia in 1995.

Twice named a U.S. Lacrosse All-American, Treanor led Niskayuna to the Section II Class A lacrosse championship last spring. The Syracuse University-bound senior-to-be also plays soccer and basketball for the Silver Warriors.
