The L.V. Rogers Bombers continue their strong play this High School Girl’s Field Hockey season finishing with a 3-1 record at the South Okanagan Hornets Tournament in Oliver.

The Bombers defeated host South Okanagan, Enver Creek of Surrey and GW Graham of Chilliwack. The lone loss came against a strong team from Churchill in Vancouver.

LVR opened against the host Hornets.

“This was a very good game as Oliver worked hard checking the bombers tenaciously,” said Bomber coach Bruce Walgren.

“Even under pressure the experienced seniors, Hanna Quinn, Shianne Michalchuck and Julia Burkhart turned the tide of the game and began to control play. 

Quinn scored three times and goalies Rylee Zondervan and Johanna Brochhagen shared in the shut out for a Bomber 3-0 win.

LVR then matched up against Enver Creek.

The offence was flowing as the Bombers routed the Fraser Valley squad 6-1.

“The Bombers started the game fast and pressed Enver Creek right from the start never giving them a second with the ball,” Walgren explained.

Quinn continued to score in bunches along with Shianne Michalchuck and Julia Burkart.

Saturday, LVR was edged by Churchill.

“This was a really hard game for the girls as Churchill is a very fast and highly skilled team, this really tested the Bomber defense and mid-field,” Walgren said.

In the final game, Quinn scored twice while Michalchuck added a single to lead the Bombers to the 3-0 win.

Bomber Senior keeper Rylee Zondervan shut the door to register the shutout in goal.

LVR played a league game this week before heading to Chilliwack Friday to compete in a tournament.
