As Tara Yowek goes, so go the L.V. Rogers Bombers Fieldhockey team.

Yowek was flawless in three games sparking the Bombers to a 3-1 record at the Fall Festival Fieldhockey Playday Saturday in Oliver.

The Bombers posted wins over Lord Tweedsmuir (Cloverdale) 3-0, Princess Margaret of Penticton 2-0 and Summerland 2-0.

The lone loss came against Chilliwack when the Fraser Valley squad scored the winner in a 1-0 game in the final minute.

“The ball went off our defence and in on their only penalty corner of the game,” said coach Val Gibson. “We dominated the game thoughout.”

Against Lord Tweedsmuir Allie Zondervan, Kyra Burkart, and Sydney Zondervan, with an assist from Paige Mansveld, scored for the Bombers.

Sarah Wade from Lauren Walgren, and Naomi Perkins from Sydney Zondervan notched markers for LVR in the win over Maggie.

Against Summerland Paige Mansveld from Allie Zondervan and Chiara Chirico from Sydney Zondervan found the back of the net.

Along with Keeper Extraordinare, Tara Yowek, Gibson was pleased with the play of team captain Paige Mansveld.
