Nathan Olson (in green) and his Sardis Falcons are off to provincials after dispatching Surrey’s Princess Margaret Lions by a 2-1 count at Sardis secondary school Tuesday afternoon.
Olson and Lachlan Gilchrist-Blackwood scored the goals as Sardis finished off their Fraser Valley adventure with a 3-1 record.
Their march to provincials started out shaky, with a 2-1 loss to Surrey’s Enver Creek Cougars last week.
That left Sardis in win-or-gome-home mode, with one stumble enough to eliminate them in the double-knockout format. Win out they did with a 6-2 victory over Langley last Thursday followed by a 4-1 win over Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox on Monday and Tuesday’s triumph over Princess Margaret.
The Falcons will now prep for the year-end tournament which takes place Nov. 23-25 in Burnaby.
