Flickers off to rough start in VILFHA Div. 1

The Cowichan Flickers played their first game in Div. 1 of the Vancouver Island Ladies Field Hockey Association last Saturday, and didn’t get off to the start they were looking for as they fell 5-1 to the Mariners.

Amanda Kurianowicz scored Cowichan’s lone goal. The Flickers will be back in action this Wednesday against Lynx I. In Div. 2, the Cowichan Cardinals also had a tough first game of 2014, losing 4-0 to the Sailors on Saturday. Next up for the Cardinals is Lynx II next Saturday.

The Cowichan Stellers won both their games last weekend as they held on to first place in Div. 3. April Keller and Maddie Pirie had two goals apiece and Olivia Burton had one in a 5-1 win over Lynx III. Keller scored in the next game, a 3-1 win over the Pirates, while Hayley Koers and Olivia Yeats also found the back of the net.

The Kestrels, Cowichan’s other Div. 3 team, were shut out 2-0 by the Pirates last Saturday.

The Kestrels play the Devils next Saturday, while the Stellers face the Demons.
