The Princess Margaret Mustangs are headed to the South Zone finals of the secondary school girls’ field hockey championships.

The squad capped off another successful season with a 1-0 shutout of the Similkameen Elementary Secondary School team at Maggie recently. The victory gave them second place overall in the standings.

Maggie controlled the play for the most part but their opponents played a strong defensive match to keep them in the game.
