J.L. Crowe takes home Fair-Play Award at field hockey provincials

The J.L. Crowe Hawks senior girls field hockey team capped off a great week at the provincials with the Fair Play award.

The J. L. Crowe Hawks senior girls field hockey team may have just missed a medal but didn’t come home empty handed as the Hawks received the prestigious Jenny John Fair Play Award at the AA Provincial Field Hockey Championship in Surrey on Friday.

“We are very proud of our girls for this,” said Hawks coach Donna Hebert in an email. “We played a very solid tournament and although narrowly missed the medal round we are extremely pleased with our performance.”

The Hawks came within a goal of making it to the medal round, but were ousted by Seycove of North Vancouver 3-2 in a quarter-final shootout. The game was a defensive battle throughout and was scoreless after regulation forcing a shootout. The first two shooters from each team scored to make it 2-2, but Seycove’s third goal was the deciding factor in a 3-2 victory.

J.L. Crowe opened the tournament with wins over Okanagan Mission, 3-0, and Enver Creek, 5-1, before falling to eventual finalist and last year’s champion Collingwood 5-0. The Hawks advanced to the playoff round by finishing second in their pool. Following the shootout loss to Seycove, the Hawks shut out Southridge 3-0, then beat Brentwood 2-1 for the fifth-place finish out of a dozen teams at the provincial championship, including the L.V. Rogers Bombers from Nelson which finished ninth. Seycove went on to capture bronze with a victory over St. Michaels.

J.L. Crowe and Okanagan Mission were awarded the Jenny John Fair Play Award for the teams that best exemplifies integrity, fairness and respect, as selected by the umpires, who rates the teams based on their interactions with umpires, opponents, and teammates.

Hawks goal scorers for the tournament were Brooke Foli, Darian Coull-Weir, Elle Mayer, and Allie Stanley with three goals each, Cam Haines with a pair, and Emma Farley with a single tally.

Crofton House won the 2016 AA BC Field Hockey Championship with a victory over Collingwood.
