LVR Bombers defeats Humphries 5-1 in field hockey

The Nelson ladies team defeated Castlegar 5-1.

The LV Rogers lady bombers defeated Stanley Humphries of Castlegar 5–1 in a convincing fashion last week.

Controlling the play from the beginning the lady Bombers passed the ball around with confidence. Therewas strong work in the midfield by Allie Zondervan, Naomi Perkins, Lakpa Dietz, Rylie Zondervan and great defence by Heather Potkins, Kyra Burkart, Noa Butterfield, Emma Gregorich and rookie defender Mia Kraus.

The Bombers first goal came from scoring machine Hanna Quinn on great passing efforts by Allie, Butterfield and Perkins. A few minutes later Emma Borhi netted the Bombers second on passing from Allie, Quinn and rookie Kassandra Schloeder.

The second half started much like the first with the Bombers controlling much of the play. Bombers rookie Liza Demski netted the Bombers’ third goal of the game from a goal mouth scramble.

Stanley Humphries scored after a little to much line juggling caused some confusion in the back line ruining goalie Camille Gebhart’s bid for a shutout.

From the restart after the Castlegar goal, Quinn ran the ball straight at the Castlegar goal untouched and deposited a low shot into the corner recording her second of the game.

A few minutes later Borhi scored her second of the game and fifth for the Bombers after some solid midfield work.

Next up for the Bombers is JL Crowe of Trail on Wednesday, October 7.
