GDCI Advances To WOSSA

Goderich | by Fadi Didi  

Field hockey squad advances, looking for fifth medal of the season.

The girls field hockey squad at Goderich District Collegiate Institute (GDCI) hope to keep the hardware coming.

The GDCI Vikings team finished their season at 11-1 to move on to the WOSSA finals, being held Thursday in Goderich.

Coach Ray Lewis says the Vikes will take on Medway in the first semi-final matchup, with Parkside taking on South Huron in the second semi-final game.

A medal at WOSSA would be another in a long line of prizes from the team this year.

Earlier this month, the girls picked up gold at the Waterloo Oxford Duckies tournament, preceded by silver at the AK Pro International event, and gold at the Waterloo Women's Field Hockey tournament.

The squad also grabbed silver at the St. John's Kilmarnock Tournament in Kitchener.

Most of the matches in the tournament were either shut-out wins, or draws.

Lewis says the numerous prizes come simply because of the hard work of the squad, but says Thursday's event could go any way.

Remnants of Hurricane Patricia are expected to sweep through Goderich on game day, but the event will only be cancelled if lightning is present.

Game 1 kicks off at 10 AM on Thursday at GDCI.
