Life will not let down any one who is going all out.”
Never will we forget that moment.
During the last minute of the game on April 16, 2017, our goalie, Jephanie, who won MVP for Team China during the tournament, nicely saved the shot of an opposing Team Singapore player. Team China finished third in the Hong Kong Lacrosse Open. At that time, we all knew the Chinese women’s lacrosse team was there to win rather than merely study from other teams.
The scores of the Hong Kong Lacrosse Open are as follows:
中国队 vs 香港REP 1：16
中国队 vs 新加坡队 11：4
中国队 vs 日本妈妈队 1：8
中国队 vs 香港YA 6：5
中国队 vs 新加坡队 9：8
Team China vs HK REP Team 1：16
Team China vs Team Singapore 11：4

The Chinese Women’s Lacrosse Team won third place of the whole tournament, winning three out of its five games, which is the best record for this team since their first appearance in the 2014 Hong Kong Lacrosse Open. With the systematic training led by Coach Morgan and Coach Jesse, players of Team China have practiced hard, for almost one year, since tryouts in June/July 2016 regardless of rain or frost. Through various kinds of workouts and practices, they have turned into a well-trained team. This summer, it will be the first time for Team China to stand on the highest stage of lacrosse at the FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup in England, less than eighty days away now. Wish Team China victory!
Some photos and quotes from Team China players about the 2017 Hong Kong Lacrosse Open are as follows:
