Ridge Meadows Burrards lacrosse player Megan Kinna was part of a historic win in Edinburgh, Scotland, as Team Canada’s 2015 U-19 Women’s Field team upset reigning world champions Team USA  9-8.

The Americans were on a 7-0 streak and had beaten their opponents by an average of 16 goals.  The U.S. had beaten Canada 15-9 in their tournament opener on July 23.

But in their first gold medal game in the U-19 women’s national team history, Canada pulled off the upset.

Kinna will play for the Northwestern Wildcats of the NCAA in Chicago after she graduates from Samuel Robertson Technical at the end the 2016 school year.
