The L.V. Rogers Bombers field hockey team came close to the Kootenay upset last week

Nelson high school field hockey team in wildcard

There is still hope for a provincial championship shot, but the Bombers will have to enter through the back door to make it happen.

There is still hope for a provincial championship shot for the L.V. Rogers field hockey team, but they will have to enter through the back door to make it happen.

The Bombers lost a 1-0 heartbreaker to Rossland Secondary on Thursday afternoon at Pass Creek just east of Castlegar. The win gives Rossland the Kootenay berth in next month’s provincials and the Bombers the task of travelling to Kelowna on Tuesday to compete for the last spot in the tournament.

The Bombers will play Sullivan Heights from the Fraser Valley no Tuesday afternoon for the wildcard spot. The provincials will be played in Burnaby from November 6 to 9.

The West Kootenay field hockey finals are scheduled for this Monday at the Pass Creek field with LVR and Trafalgar Middle School taking part.
