The 2019 Field Hockey Canada U18 National Championships got started this Thursday at Tamanawis Park, in Surrey. Every Team BC in the competition had their first games on Day 1, with some great performances.
This first day of the U18 Women’s National was a true face-off between British Columbia and Ontario, with Quebec and Prince Edward Island only playing this Friday.
At 8:30 in the morning, the opening match of the tournament was between the girls from the BC Rams and Ontario Central, in Pool A. It was a very thigh game, and no one was able to get anything on the scoreboard, ending in 0-0.
The Rams went back on the pitch to close out the day, and what a game it was; 10-0 against Ontario East, with eight different players scoring.
Still in Pool A, the BC Lions were defeated by Ontario Central, 2-0. Playing in Pool B, the BC Stags girls had a great 3-1 win versus Ontario West.
There was only one game on this first day of the boys U18 National. BC played well against Quebec and managed to secure a 3-0 win. BC, Quebec and Alberta will play each other three times in the men’s pool, with whoever finishes in first place will get the gold medal.
