Bridgman Cup field hockey results

Cowichan High rise above, winning Bridgman Cup high school girls field hockey tournament

Cowichan High defeated South Delta to win the 2013 Bridgman Cup high school girls field hockey tournament at the University of Victoria on Oct. 13.

Cow High was a favourite heading into the tournament but only narrowly edged South Delta after the two teams played to a nil-nil draw in the final, and needed shootouts to decide it.

Of the four Greater Victoria schools participating only St. Michaels University School cracked the top-eight, faring well against powerhouse Cowichan in a respectable loss of 2-0. Oak Bay hung on against South Delta but couldn’t get the all-important goal in a 1-0 loss to eventual second-place finishers South Delta.
