All-star goalie gives DCS Chargers a chance

Acrobatic all-star goalie Nick Harder kept things close for his team as Duncan Christian School hosted its 27th annual ball hockey tournament at the Island Savings Centre, last Friday, but his heroics weren’t quite enough to get his team into the medals.

The Chargers finished seventh in the final standings, while Surrey Christian topped Langley Christian 2 7-1 for gold and Langley Christian 1 edged Richmond Christian 5-4 in overtime for bronze.

DCS had its closest games in 3-2 losses to Lions Gate and Pacific Christian. Grade 12s Bailey Cook, Doug Groenendijk, Gabe Lachmanec and Dawson Killick were among DCS’s top players throughout the tournament.
