Junior Cowichan Storm wrap up season with loss to Victoria rivals

The Cowichan Storm junior team lost a close field lacrosse game against Victoria at the Cowichan Sportsplex on June 9. Chantal Arnold and Chelsea Warke each scored twice and Jenna Howard added a single as Cowichan fell 7-5 to their Island rivals.

Despite the result, coach Jackie Harrison was pleased with the team’s performance.

"The girls have worked very hard this year and have made great improvements through the season," she said. "Unfortunately, we fell just short in our last game with Victoria. Our transition game proved challenging as the girls had trouble making strong passes and successful catches through the midfield. Communication and supporting the ball carrier were focus points in the game."

Harrison also praised the defensive work of Cassie Latham, Erin Kennedy and Shaelynn Ross.
