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

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.
