Congratulations to the Varsity Field Hockey Team for an excellent performance at the ISAs at Crofton House.
ISA field hockey teams include many of the very best in BC and a 5th place finish is excellent.
The Tigers dominated Southridge 4-0 in game one, then lost in a very tight 2-0 decision to St. Michaels University School (SMUS) in game two. SMUS scored two late goals to clinch the win. SMUS finished 2nd in the AA BC Championships last season.
Saturday morning, the Tigers battled to a 0-0 draw with Shawnigan Lake (SLS), the defending AAA BC Champions. York House finished a close 3rd in pool play behind SMUS and SLS and faced Brentwood College for 5th. In dramatic fashion, the Tigers defeated Brentwood in a shootout with senior, Lucy, scoring the winning goal to help the Tigers claim 5th.
Congratulations girls and thank you to the team and coaches, Stephen Bissett and Chris Cropley.
The Tigers went four wins and zero losses through round robin play at the UBC Tournament after wins over Rockridge 2-0, South Kamloops 1-0, Southern Okanagan Secondary 5-0 and JL Crowe 4-0. The Tigers earned first place in the nine team draw and faced Kelowna Secondary School (KSS) and Little Flower Academy in the playoff round, earning a draw with both teams. KSS won the tiebreaker.
