SHSS Field hockey team comes from behind to beat LVR

SHSS caps off a busy week with a win over Nelson

SHSS centre-forward Morgan Flynn prepares to pass the ball as the L.V. Rogers defender guards her during Monday's game in Castlegar.

Despite being short two players, the Stanley Humphries senior girls field hockey team was able to defeat L.V. Rogers from Nelson 2-1 on Monday in league action at Pass Creek Park.

Sisters Kerstin and Morgan Flynn scored the goals for SHSS.

“It wasn’t bad. It kind of sucked playing with only ten players and then nine,” said Kerstin, who’s in grade 12 and plays centre-midfielder. “It was a lot more running for everyone.”

“It was fun. But a little tiring,”  said Morgan, who’s two years younger and plays centre-forward.

On the weekend the team travelled to a tournament in Oliver. The Rockettes played well, beating Oliver (South Okanagan Secondary) and Clayton Heights from Surrey, and losing to South Kamloops and G.W. Graham of Chilliwack.

Last Wednesday, SHSS play hard against a strong Rossland team but ultimately fell 3-0 to the Rockets.

“We were playing with no substitutes, so everyone had to play with no breaks,” said SHSS team manager Fiona Martin. “Despite this, a great effort, considering some of the more experienced players were not able to play.”

The game was a great opportunity for the SHSS grade 8’s and 9’s to get some more experience on the pitch.

“There were four grade 8’s and 9’s playing (almost half the team) who are only in their first season against an experienced Rossland team,” said Martin. “For an inexperienced team, we’re doing very well.”
