A golden summer for Richmond lacrosse standout

Teagan Ng leads New West and Team B.C. to provincial and national titles at the Midget level

It’s been a golden summer on the lacrosse floor for Teagan Ng.

The Richmond multi-sport standout had a leading role in Team B.C. capturing the Canadian Lacrosse Girls Midget Championship last weekend in Coquitlam. B.C. went 4-0-0 in round-robin play then blanked Ontario 8-0 in the title game.

Ng had a pair of goals in the final after earlier scoring six in round-robin play, despite sitting out much of the first game against Nova Scotia due to nagging shin splints. She also earned player-of-the game honours against Ontario.

The Grade 10 McMath student is no stranger to the national tournament. 

Last year she helped B.C. capture gold at the Bantam level in Nova Scotia, after earning silver in 2017. She still has another year of Midget eligibility remaining.

At the club level, Ng helped the New West Salmonbellies capture the Provincial Midget title in Nanaimo with a 5-2 win over Ridge Meadows in the gold medal game. She was named a tournament all-star.

She is now preparing for her first season of field lacrosse this fall.

Ng began the summer on the soccer pitch, helping the U15 Richmond Strikers earn bronze at the Provincial “A” Cup Championships in South Surrey. The Strikers had earlier won their second straight Coastal “A” Cup on home turf at Minoru Park. 

She finished the campaign with 32 goals and 16 assists in 18 league games and was a finalist for Richmond Girls Soccer Association Player of the Year honours.

Ng was also a member of the McMath Wildcats senior girls team that also finished third at the B.C. High School AAA Championships in Cloverdale.

On the basketball court, she helped McMath capture the Grade 9 provincial title, earning first team all-star honours.
