It’s win or go home time for the L.V. Rogers Bombers.

The-two-time defending zone champion travels to Creston Wednesday for the opportunity to get back to the provincial tournament as five teams vye for the right to represent the zone at the Kootenay High School AA Girl’s Soccer Championships.

The Bombers, the top seed entering the tournament, meet the winner of Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries Rockers and Prince Charles Comets at 10:30 a.m.

A win advances LVR into the 2:30 p.m. final against the winner of J. Lloyd Crowe of Trail and Invermere’s David Thompson Lakers.

The Bombers have had a very successful season to date, sporting a record of 9-2-2 at tournaments in Kelowna, Cranbrook and Summerland.

“Confidence is high going into our upcoming Kootenay playdowns,” said Bomber coach Jamie Spendlove, carrying a team of 24 players through most of the season.

“We have progressed very well, refining our system of play and playing better and better each tournament.

The BC High School AA Girl’s Soccer Championships are set for May 29-31 in Penticton.

The 16-team tournament is hosted by Princess Margaret High School.

Last year the Bombers, finishing fourth in the tournament, shocked the tournament experts by advancing to the Final Four.
