Nelson's Bombers off to field hockey final
The L.V. Rogers Bombers field hockey team will meet Rossland on Thursday in the West Kootenay championship after downing Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries Secondary 3-0 Tuesday afternoon.
Fuelled by great goaltending by ‘keeper Tara Yowek, the Bombers topped their rivals on a sloppy Pass Creek field in the semi-final to set up the match against powerhouse Rossland Secondary.
Sarah Wade, Allie Zondervan and Paige Mansveld scored the goals for the Bombers.
The final goes at 3:30 p.m. at Pass Creek (near Castlegar) on Thursday. The winner will get a berth in the high school provincials. The loser will still keep hope alive and have a chance to play in the wildcard next week in Kelowna against a Fraser Valley team.
