Avon­lea up­sets fourth-ranked Cor­ner­stone

Ea­gles ad­vance to se­nior boys’ semi­fi­nals

for Cor­ner­stone this sea­son as they dropped their first three matches be­fore win­ning three of their last five.

Like their fe­male coun­ter­parts, it was a bit of a cul­ture shock go­ing up into the se­nior di­vi­sion. But with an ex­tremely young team, El­liott feels they have a bright fu­ture.

“We are only los­ing one guy. We only have one se­nior on the team so we could be a force to reckon with,” she said.

Even in the quar­ter-fi­nals, ev­ery set was close and could have gone either way.

Cor­ner­stone now moves on to their con­fer­ence play­downs on Nov. 10 and 11 in Carn­duff and play­ing at the se­nior level has been a good warm up head­ing into the tour­na­ment.

“I think we have a good chance ac­tu­ally to go to re­gion­als,” El­liott said.

League play­offs will con­tinue on Thurs­day as Avon­lea will re­turn to Moose Jaw to face Cen­tral in the semi­fi­nals, while Pea­cock will host Vanier. Both games get un­der­way at 8 p.m. The win­ners will face each other in the city fi­nals on Nov. 7 at 8 p.m.
