A feel-good story to start off your Wednesday! Great to see field hockey back in Burnaby & New West schools.
The game ended in a 2-0 win, with one team prevailing over another.
But in true fact, the season completed with four teams winning – in that those who came to play and restart a once-strong league have established a foothold for others to follow.
The Moscrop Panthers will proudly display the Burnaby-New West senior girls field hockey banner, after blanking the New Westminster Hyacks 2-0 on Thursday.
It crowned a season where four schools formed teams to re-animate programs dormant since the 2014 teacher labour dispute. All the participants this year have things to be proud of, remarked Moscrop volunteer coach and Class of 2016 grad Sade Alexis.
“I’m really proud of them … Burnaby field hockey in high school has kind of fallen apart in the last couple of years. Last year it didn’t exist, the year before because of the strike it didn’t happen. The last time it (existed) was when I was in Grade 10.” –
