Second-place for Mustangs

Princess Margaret Mustangs lose to Oliver Hornets to finish second in AA Okanagan Valley

The Princess Margaret Secondary School Mustangs girls field hockey team finished second in the AA Okanagan Valley championship on Oct. 28.

The Mustangs earned a berth in the championship game, hosted by South Okanagan Secondary School Hornets (Oliver) after they defeated the Okanagan Mission Huskies 1-0. Kaycee McKinnon netted the winner, while Alaysha Funk earned her third consecutive shutout. However, they lost to the Hornets 4-0.

Brenda Kelly, who helped assistant coach Mark Hartmann while coach Christy Bevington was away, said the players were excited by their result. In placing second, the Mustangs were given the chance to qualify for provincials by playing two games in Kelowna on Oct. 29. The Mustangs faced the L.V. Rogers Bombers from Nelson and lost 2-0. They then defeated a school from the Fraser Valley 2-1.

“Both games were really good hockey,” said Kelly. “It was played on turf which makes it much faster. Our team finished second in the valley which is a very honourable end to a positive season.”
