Cowichan Secondary girls face tough test in junior boys

Cowichan Secondary School’s girls hockey team may lost a game against the junior boys squad 9-0 at the Island Savings Centre last Thursday.

Cowichan Secondary School’s girls hockey team may have lost a game against the junior boys squad 9-0 at the Island Savings Centre last Thursday, but they ultimately got what they were looking for from the game.

“It was an exhibition game designed to give the girls a stronger test, which the boys certainly did,” said Mike Moroz, who coaches both teams, but was on the girls’ bench for Thursday’s game.

Despite the loss, Arica Windsor was excellent in the Cowichan girls net.

The Cowichan girls team’s previous game, on Nov. 24, saw the team pay tribute to Don Cherry with a jacket contest, won by Rori Wratten with honourable mentions to Cheyenne Sawchuk and Marisa St. Amand. On the ice, the Thunderbirds defeated G.P. Vanier 11-4 in Courtenay. Lexi Liddle and Jenna Batty each had hat tricks, Maya Hermant scored twice, and Angela Ramwell, Gracie Innes and Taylor Ullman each had one goal.
