Boys & Girls BC Teams at U16 National Championships
After taking in the Men's and Women's Field Hockey Medal Games at the Pan American Games, our Boys BC U15 Blue & White Teams and our Girls BC U15 Blue & White Teams are halfway through their own field hockey competition! U16 Nationals are in Brampton this week and all four of our teams are performing well.
The Boys BC Blue team are 4-0 at the tournament so far, with one game remaining in pool play. The Boys BC White team are currently sitting in 5th position with 1 tie and 2 losses, but can make up ground on the last day of pool play when they take on both Ontario teams.
The Girls BC Blue finished 2nd in pool play, after a narrow loss to Ontario Red. BC Blue beat Ontario White in a tight 1-0 match and advance to the Gold Medal Game! The Girls BC White team had a 1-3 record in pool play, finishing 4th. This morning they faced off against Alberta in a quarter-final match. BC White managed to get by Alberta in a 4-3 sudden-death shootout decision! They will now play Ontario Red in a semi-final later today.
Good luck to all of our athletes! It has been an exciting week so far and we look forward to seeing how it all plays out.
