Sardis Falcons top Heritage Woods in field lacrosse opener

The Falcons rallied from a halftime hole to take a big win on the road in Port Moody.

The Sardis secondary field hockey Falcons opened their season Thursday with a 9-8 road win over the Heritage Woods (Port Moody) Kodiaks.

The Falcons came out of the gate strong, with Jacob Challman opening the scoring just a few minutes in. Oshea McAdie and Dylan Hawkins scored as well, but the game was tied 3-3 through one quarter.

Challman and Joel Conrad scored second quarter goals for Sardis, which trailed 6-5 at halftime.

Connor Dykstra, Justin Crooks, Jordan Sloan, Eric Wolfe, Jackson Kinneman, Oscar Dekany and Myles Van de Leur played tough defence in the second half, and Grade 10 goalie Luke Davidson made several huge saves to keep his team within striking distance.

In the final 20 minutes the Falcons got goals from Hawkins, McAdie, Conrad and Kobe Bonato to take the win.

Sardis returns to action Tuesday, playing their home opener against Vancouver College at Exhibition Field, with a 3:15 p.m. start.
