Undermanned SHSS field hockey girls fall to Rossland

Despite a shortened roster, the Stanley Humphries senior girls soccer team played hard against a strong Rossland team but ultimately fell 3-0 to the Rockets.

Nicole Palmer of SHSS battles for the ball with Jessie Fuller of Rossland on Monday afternoon at Pass Creek Park in Castlegar.

Despite a shortened roster, the Stanley Humphries senior girls soccer team played 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.”

The SHSS girls have a busy week with a tournament this weekend in Oliver and another home game Monday against L.V. Rogers from Nelson.
