Cowichan Kestrels remain undefeated

The Cowichan Kestrels managed a decisive 4-1 victory over the Renegades in Vancouver Island Field Hockey Association play at the Cowichan Sportsplex last Sunday.

Morgan Battie, Hayley Picard, Sharyn Higginson and Steph Yeats scored for the Kestrels, who remain undefeated in Division 3. Cowichan’s other Div. 3 team, the Stellers, were blanked 2-0 by the Ravens last weekend, while in Div. 2., the Cowichan Cardinals were defeated 3-0 by the Sailors. The field hockey season began on the weekend of Sept. 20-21, with the Kestrels defeating the Pirates 3-0 on two goals by Teresa Gregus and one by Picard, while the Stellers fell 4-0 to Lynx III. The Cardinals got a hat trick from Shylayne Davidson and two goals from Jill Roberts as they earned a 5-1 win over Lynx II in Div. 2, and in Div. 1, Kristie Sykes scored twice as the Cowichan Flickers tied the Mariners 2-2. The Cardinals and Flickers were off on the weekend of Sept. 27-28, but both of Cowichan’s Div. 3 teams earned wins. The Kestrels prevailed 6-0 over Lynx III thanks to two-goal performances by Picard and Cheryl McCreary, and singles from Gregus and Tanya Bennett; and the Stellers doubled up the Pirates 4-2 as Roberts and April Keller each scored twice.
