Local lacrosse players get silver

Maple Ridge’s Megan Kinna and Regan Eaton each walked away with silver medals from the 2011 Bantam-Midget Girls Lacrosse National Championships, held in New Westminster at Queen’s Park Arena last week.

Teams from four provinces battled for the honors of being the best in Canada. Team Ontario took the top prize in both the bantam and midget divisions.

Kinna was a member of the bantam B.C. team, and recorded three goals and six assists throughout the tournament, finishing as the top-ranked, first-year player.

The bantam team was 5-1 going into the final against Team Ontario, which it lost 4-3.

Regan went undefeated in net at the tournament on Team B.C.’s midget squad, finishing the tournament No. 1-ranked goalie.

The midget team went 6-0 through the round-robin portion of the tournament, pitting it against Team Ontario in the tournament final as well.

Eaton didn’t start for Team B.C. in the gold-medal final game, but was called in midway through the second period with the score 3-0 for Ontario.

Eaton managed to shut out Ontario in the second half of the game, but Team B.C. could only manage a single goal late in the second, losing 3-1.

Eaton played  for the Ridge Meadows Burrards midget girls team during the regular season.
