The Varsity Field Hockey Team is heading to the 2015 AA BC Championships after a dramatic 2-0 victory over the Little Flower Academy Angels (LFA) to earn the second and final Van-Richmond Zone berth to the BC’s.
Three previous matches vs. LFA all ended in ties. Wednesday, October 28, was the final, deciding game and a fourth tie would have led to a shoot-out to determine the winner. However, the Tigers didn’t let that happen. Instead Shae put them up 1-0 in the first half. Fully prepared for LFA to come out aggressively in the second half, the Tigers held their ground and in the dying minutes of the third quarter, Julia scored off a rebound giving the Tigers a 2-0 lead.
The final quarter was hard fought as the Angels were not going to go down without a fight. The Tigers matched that toughness holding on to a convincing 2-0 victory, and another shutout for goaltender Aria.
The Tigers will head to Victoria, Nov 4-5-6 for the 2015 BC Championships!
Congrats to the girls and their coaches: Mr. Bissett and Mr. Cropley.
