Stellers advance to Div. 3 final in ladies field hockey

Although there was a Cowichan entry in the semifinals in each division of the Vancouver Island Ladies Field Hockey Association playoffs last weekend, only one final will feature a team from the Valley.

The Cowichan Stellers were the lone team from the Valley to advance to the championship game, after beating the Ravens 3-2. April Keller, Ashton Aumen and Hannah Craig did the scoring for the Stellers.

The other Cowichan teams were defeated by a single goal.

In Division 1, the Cowichan Flickers’ only goal came from Beth Corish as they were defeated 2-1 by Lynx I. In Division 2, the Cowichan Cardinals pushed the Sailors into overtime, but were downed 4-3. Craig, Michelle Purchase and Shylayne Davidson provided the scoring for the Cardinals.

All three divisions will play their finals this Saturday at Vikes Field. In Division 1, Lynx I will take on the Mariners at 10 a.m., and in Division 2, the Sailors will face Lynx II.

The Stellers will face Lynx III for the Division 3 title at 2 p.m.
