A pair of Richmond Lacrosse standouts helped the New West Salmonbellies strike gold at the B.C. Midget Girls Championships.
The Salmonbellies capped a memorable run in Nanaimo with a 5-2 victory over Ridge Meadows in the championship game. The result avenged the team’s only loss of the tournament, a 3-2 defeat in round-robin play.
The New West line-up included Teagan Ng and Jensyn Bourne.
Ng was recognized for her outstanding play by being named a tournament all-star. The multi-sport standout has thrived in box lacrosse for a number of years and is a fixture with the Team B.C. program that will be playing at the Midget Nationals next month in Coquitlam.
Meanwhile at the Pee Wee Boys Provincial Championships in Delta, the A2 Roadrunners capped an outstanding season with a fourth place finish — falling 9-4 to Prince George in the bronze medal game.
Kaden Ng, Teagan’s brother, was named a tournament all-star while Steven Yan earned the Warrior Fair Play Award.
B.C. Lacrosse’s minor provincials concludes with this week’s Midget Championships at the Langley Events Centre.
The Roadrunners will be competing in the A1 Division thanks to winning a three-team playoff with Delta and New West for the final B.C. berth. Richmond defeated the Salmonbellies 7-4 at Queen’s Park Arena after knocking off the Islanders 6-2 two days earlier at Minoru.
They will be up against Coquitlam, Burnaby, Kamloops Juan de Fuca and Ridge Meadows in Langley.
