Sports Update: November 3-5

Preston Gillespie
The Senior Boys Soccer team travelled to Tobique Valley for their final soccer game of the season.

They took on the Rothesay Netherwood Riverhawks in the Provincial Semi-Final. The winner of the elimination game moved on to the Provincial Final. Our boys played a hard 70 minutes of soccer but, came up just short of the win.

They fell 3-1 to RNS in a tough game. The boys stayed focused and left it all out on the field. Denver Donovan had the lone goal for the Eagles. Unfortunately, our boys were unable to capitalize on anymore of their shots on net.

An enormous congratulations goes out to the Senior Boys on their stellar season of soccer.  The boys had a historic season, going undefeated in regular season play and laced up one of the most talented soccer teams our school has seen in years. Anticipation for next season is running high as the team will come out swinging and will certainly look for a redemption shot again.

The Middle School Girls Soccer team travelled to Sunny Corner for their final Jamboree.  They took on NSEE in their first game and downed them 2-0. Hailey Singer had both goals for our Eagles while Layla Hallihan recorded yet another shut out in net. They then played against a strong Gretna Green team. The girls suffered a 4-0 loss that ended their season. Congratulations on a great season girls!

The Senior Girls Hockey team laced up their skates for the first time in Blackville history.

In their first game, they took on PRP (Campbellton) on home ice. They did not disappoint, downing the Predateurs 11-3.

Points for the night are as followed: Erin Moody had 7 points, Jaime Vickers with 5 points, Jayna Brennan with 4 points, Amber Walls and K.C. Hallihan with 3 points each, Abby Donovan and Hayley Underhill with 2 points each, and Olivia Buggie, Marlee Schofield and Kensen Brennan with 1 point each.

The girls return to action on Sunday, November 12 in their Home-Opener of the regular season as they take on WAL (Tracadie). The girls are hoping for a huge hometown crowd for their game of the regular season. Don't forget to come out and support you Eagles.
