Talons take silver at Fraser Valley field hockey playoffs

The Gleneagle Talons women’s field hockey team’s winning streak came to a disappointing end on Sunday when the club fell to South Delta secondary in the championship game of the Fraser Valley playoffs.

Gleneagle started off the tournament in good position.

They shutout Panorama Ridge secondary 4-0, before defeating Sullivan Heights secondary 4-1 in the semifinals.

Last week’s loss is the first time the team has lost all year, after finishing up the regular season with a perfect record followed by a 4-2 victory over Dr. Charles Best secondary in the district championships.

It is the 15th district title for the Talons since they program was launched 20 years ago.

However, the season is not over for the Gleneagle team. They are currently preparing for the AAA provincial championship, which will be hosted by Tamanawis secondary between Nov. 9 and 11.
