Congratulations to the boys and girls floor hockey teams who represented LMS yesterday at the annual tournament held by Maranatha school.
The boys team kicked off the tournament in impressive style led by outstanding goaltending from David Nunes and goals from Michael and Peyton defeating First Lutheran 3-1. The boys looked poised to to make a further mark on the tournament but came up short against still competition from the host school Maranatha. The boys dropped games to Marantha “A” and Maranatha “B” eliminating them from the championship. The boys played an outstanding tournament and should be commended on their hard work and determination. Special mention to David who was named goalkeeper of the tournament! Way to go Boys!
The girls championship followed the boys, and our girls were up to the test. They girls faced a very difficult first game against the Maranatha and fell short to the host school. The girls never lost hope in their quest for the championship and followed up a tough loss to MCA with two outstanding games against First Lutheran and Academie Ste. Cecile. The girls got out to an early start against First Lutheran taking an early 2-0 lead. First Lutheran fought back and tied the game with a final score of 2-2. The girls final game was against Academie Ste. Cecile with the winner advancing to the championship game. Led by goals from Kate and Rachel the girls went out to an big lead of 5-1. Academie Ste Cecile stormed the net towards the end of the game and with an impressive display of goalkeeper from Smaranda the girls managed to beat Ste. Cecile 5-3 booking their ticket to the schools first ever Championship Game. The girls faced off against Maranatha once again. The girls played an impressive game limiting Maranatha to their lowest scoring game of the tournament! The girls finished second in the tournament and made school history by claiming the schools first EVER banner. Congratulations to Batoul, Lexus, Delylah, Rachel, Kate and Smaranda! Way to go Lakeview!
