Bronze medal at field hockey provincials for L.V. Rogers

The Lady Bombers defeated Oliver to finish third in Surrey last week

The L.V. Rogers field hockey team are provincial bronze medallists.

The Lady Bombers finished third in the Tier 2 division at the AA Field Hockey Championships in Surrey last week. Skyla Short and Shianne Michalchuk each scored as the Bombers shut out Oliver 3-0 to win the medal.

LVR played in Group A with Crofton House, Windsor and North Delta. The Bombers first opened the tournament with losses to Windsor and Crofton House on water turf, but their luck changed the next day.

Hanna Quinn and Michalchuk each scored twice and Paige Meisner scored a single in a 5-0 win against North Delta. Then against Southride, Quinn led the Bombers with a hat trick en route to a 6-0 victory. Senior keeper Rylee Zondervan earned both shutouts.

LVR faced St. Thomas Aquinas in the semifinal on Day 3. Quinn scored a late goal off her own rebound, but St. Thomas replied with a tying goal. The opposition then scored the winning goal with five minutes left despite the player using the back of the stick, which is a foul in field hockey. That led to a 2-1 loss for LVR and a berth in the bronze-medal match.

The tournament was the final appearance on the team for seniors Julia Burkart, Heather Potkins, Quinn, Michalchuck, Ashley Hall and Meisner.
