Chilliwack secondary school, BC High School Sports, field hockey

Chilliwack secondary school’s senior girls field hockey team finished 12th out of 16 teams at last week’s B.C. High School provincial tournament in Kelowna.

The Storm were stuck in a tough pool, and opened the tourney against the eventual champion Handsworth Royals (North Vancouver).

The result was a 7-0 loss.

Chilliwack moved on to a match with Victoria’s Oak Bay secondary school, another title contender. They took another loss on the chin by a 6-0 score.

In their last pool game, on Thursday morning, the reeling Storm girls suffered a 4-0 loss to the North Surrey Spartans.

Chilliwack turned things around in the consolation round, taking a 4-1 decision over the Eric Hamber Griffins Thursday afternoon.

Chilliwack played Francis Kelsey secondary school (Mill Bay) in the consolation semi-final, battling the Breakers to a 2-2 draw through regulation time before losing 3-2 in penalty strokes.

Chilliwack’s final game was against the Kelowna secondary school Owls. CSS forced another game to penalty strokes, where they lost 3-0.

Coach Barb Kroeker was pleased with her team’s effort and the results.

“We went into the tournament ranked 16th and we finished 12th, so it was a huge success for us,” she said.
