The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

A team from Cres­cent Col­le­giate in Blake­town bowed out in the fi­nal of the girls’ 4A pro­vin­cial high school ball hockey cham­pi­onships in Bay Roberts on Satur­day, April 9.

The Coy­otes fell 4-1 to Dis­cov­ery Col­le­giate of Bon­av­ista in the fi­nal, with Carey Burt reg­is­ter­ing the only goal for Cres­cent. The tour­na­ment fea­tured eight teams. Cres­cent en­tered the fi­nal as the favourites to win it all, af­ter go­ing un­de­feated through­out the tour­na­ment up to that point.

The team had a strong per­for­mance in the roundrobin, go­ing 3-0 with wins over the host As­cen­sion Col­le­giate Astros (6-2), Ap­palachia high of St. Ge­orge’s (70) and the even­tual champs from Bon­av­ista (5-3). Ali­cia Gil­lam tal­lied five goals in the win over Ap­palachia.

In semi-fi­nal play, the Coy­otes re­bounded from a one-goal deficit to de­feat a stub­born Mount Pearl Se­nior High squad 5-3. Re­becca Green net­ted a hat trick, Carey Burt had a goal and two helpers, and Gil­lam tal­lied once for the win­ners.

But the re­match against Dis­cov­ery in the fi­nal saw an op­po­site out­come from the 5-3 score in round-robin play, with Bon­av­ista com­ing out on the win­ning end and claim­ing the pro­vin­cial banner.

The host Bay Roberts team recorded one win in three out­ings. It came again Ap­palachia by a score of 70. Chelsey Brad­bury scored two goals and picked up an as­sist to lead As­cen­sion to vic­tory. Courtney Car­a­van recorded the shutout.
