Third place for field hockey Talons
The Gleneagle Talons appeared poised to roll into the AAA field hockey girls’ provincial championship finals last week but instead will have to settle for third place.
The Coquitlam club hit a road block in the semifinals, which came in the form of Cowichan Valley secondary, a dominant club that went on to win second place in the tournament.
With the loss, the Talons were forced into a consolation game, which the team won 2-1 over South Delta on Friday.
Gleneagle had a strong showing in round-robin play, with a 6-1 win over South Kamloops and a 6-1 win over Winston Churchill secondary. The club also defeated Argyle in the playoff quarterfinals.
Heritage Woods was the only team to deal the Talons a loss in the round-robin portion of the tournament but could not keep the streak going into the playoffs.
The Kodiaks lost their quarterfinal game to Cowichan and ended up finishing the tournament in seventh place.
Port Moody finished in tenth place and Dr. Charles Best finished in 14th out of 16 teams.
