Bombers advance to field hockey provincials

LVR will play in Surrey despite dropping 1-0 to J.L. Crowe last week

The L.V. Rogers senior girls field hockey team advanced to the B.C. AA Provincial Field Hockey Championships despite a 1-0 loss on Oct. 25th to Trail’s J.L. Crowe.

The Bombers advanced as the second-place representative from the Kootaney zone. LVR’s rookie keeper Johanna Brochhagen kept the Bombers alive with several saves against Crowe, and only allowed one goal late in the first half on a shot that barely made it through her pads.

LVR nearly tied the game with 40 seconds left in regulation when a shot beat the Crowe keeper, but the ball rolled along the goal-line and somehow bounced out instead of in.

LVR previously dismantled Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries 11-0 on Oct. 24. Hanna Quinn scored five goals, followed by Faith Miesner with two and singles to Heather Potkins, Ella Peloso, Marisa Price and Shianne Michalchuck. Keeper Rylee Zondervan recorded the shutout.

Provincials run Nov. 8 to 10 in Surrey.
