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.
