The senior field hockey team travelled to Crofton House on Friday for the ISA Championships. As expected, the gold medal match featured Collingwood and the host CHS Falcons. The two bitter rivals pushed each other but at the end of regulation neither team had managed a goal. In the penalty shoot-out, the Cavs rode the brilliant goaltending of Izzy Fry to the victory and the gold medal.
It appeared that a highly suspect goal was going to give the Windsor Dukes the North Shore senior boys' soccer league title, but a last-minute tally by Tariq Alibhai saved the day for Collingwood as they rallied to defeat Windsor in penalties. The Cavs now find themselves in the driver's seat as a win over STA on Thursday will give them the league title.
Collingwood's Junior B field hockey team had a great two days at the ISA tournament this past weekend. The Killer B's proved that the depth of the Collingwood field hockey program is truly extraordinary with a terrific showing at the tournament. Here is a report from Coach Mulock:
Collingwood's junior field hockey teams travelled to the ISA Championships at Shawnigan Lake School this weekend. The Gold team returned last night victorious after defeating Crofton House 2-0 in the final.
In the battle yesterday for bragging rights between West Van's two independent schools, there was one soccer team that made a resounding statement and it was the Collingwood Cavaliers. The Cavs raced to a 3-0 halftime lead and they never looked back as they defeated Mulgrave 5-1.
The senior field hockey team won a thrilling semi-final against Cowichan but fell short of their ultimate goal when they were defeated 3-0 by Handsworth in the Bridgman Cup final. The loss in the final should not take anything away from a tremendous long weekend of field hockey for the Cavs.
The senior field hockey team defeated Little Flower Academy and Oak Bay yesterday to earn a spot in the Bridgman Cup semi-finals. This is a terrific accomplishment considering the depth of teams in this tournament.
The senior field hockey team travelled to Victoria on Thursday to play in the prestigious Bridgman Cup tournament. On a wet Friday morning, they took to the field for their first game.
The senior soccer team pushed their record to 4-0 with a 2-0 win over Sutherland yesterday. The team is playing some terrific soccer this year and yesterday was no exception as the Cavs dominated much of the game.
The senior field hockey team pushed their league record to 2-0 with a 4-2 win yesterday over the West Van Highlanders. The Cavs now sit on top of the North Shore Premier Division, which features some of the best AA and AAA teams in the province.
For the second straight game DJ Moretto saved three penalty shots to lead the senior boys' soccer team to victory. After a spectacular display in the 9-penalty marathon against Bodwell, DJ was even better as he saved one penalty in regulation time and two in the shoot-out as the Cavs defeated Rockridge 4-3 for their third straight league win.
Collingwood's junior field hockey Blue squad defeated Sutherland last Friday. It was an impressive performance by Collingwood's young team. Here is the game report from Coach Mulock:
The senior soccer team defeated Bodwell in dramatic fashion last week in a tense penalty shoot-out. The game was tied 0-0 after regulation time so the two teams automatically went to the penalty shoot-out to break the tie. The Cavs were to score seven goals in the shoot-out and won the game after goalie DJ Moretto made his third save on Bodwell's nine shots.
The senior volleyball team tipped off their season in terrific fashion with a win over Whistler. The team has a strong group of returning seniors and this experience showed in the season opener. Here is a report from Coach Lee:
The senior soccer team opened league play today with a convincing 4-1 win over Seycove. The rain may have been falling but nothing could dampen the spirits of the Collingwood squad as they played beautiful soccer all game long and completely dominated the Seahawks.
The senior field hockey team overwhelmed their West Van rival Sentinel in an exhibition match today. McKinley Kennedy opened the scoring off a short-corner and the floodgates quickly opened for the Cavs. Maddy Augustus, Maisie Hastings and Jacqueline Webb all scored before the halftime whistle.
The senior field hockey team kicked off their season in spectacular fashion with four straight wins at the Polar Bear Cup. A ten-minute implosion in the fifth game was to cost the Cavs the championship, but Coaches Bruner, Gold and Underwood were thrilled by how quickly the team has already come together as it meshes its many returning starters with some terrific rookies.
The senior soccer team travelled to Victoria for the annual ISA Tournament which always kicks off the season. The team finished with three wins and one loss and came home with the bronze medal. This is a terrific start to the season for a team that is blessed with a large number of returning veterans. Coach Faly came away from the weekend feeling very optimistic about the Cavs' chances this year in the tough North Shore league.
For Coach Payne it has been a long time coming. After multiple second-place finishes at the BC AA Golf Championships, the chase for gold ended this afternoon in Chase, BC. The Cavs are coming home with the gold medal. Phoebe Yue (75), Sean Buckles (76), Michael Kennedy (77), Sandee Park (84) and Ben Wrixon cruised to a 16-stroke lead on the first day and brought it home today.
It is now official, this is the greatest sports year in Collingwood history with five teams winning gold medals in five different sports. Field Hockey, Combined Skiing, Tennis, Rugby and Golf will all proudly place big blue banners on the wall this summer.
Here is Coach Payne's report:
It was a rags to riches story if there ever was one. A soccer program that had never been to a BC Championship squeaks in with a miraculous comeback in the their zone playoffs. They then lose their first game at the BC's but bounce back to win their pool and then their semi-final. Collingwood's senior girls' soccer squad seemed a team of destiny, but it was not to be as they lost in a penalty shoot-out to St. Michaels University School.
On the same week that coach Dave Speirs went into the BC Hall of Fame with his 1991 Canadian World Cup Rugby teammates, the senior rugby team gave their own Hall of Fame performance in a 45-31 victory over Brentwood College. This win gave Collingwood its 8th BC AA rugby title.
The senior girls' soccer team has advanced to the BC AA Championship game with a 2-0 win over South Kamloops. After dropping the first game of the tournament 1-0, the Cavs have reeled off three straight wins and assured themselves a medal.
The senior soccer team has overcome losing their first game in pool play and assured themselves a berth in the BC AA semi-finals after a 1-0 win today over Pitt Meadows. This means that the Cavs have guaranteed themselves a shot at winning a medal at their first-ever BC Championships.
The senior rugby team will play for the BC AA Championship on Saturday. The Cavs defeated Clarence Fulton from Vernon 50-25 in their opening match of the provincial championships and followed this up with a 50-5 win over GW Graham yesterday. Collingwood will now face Brentwood in the final.
When you've been number one for over a decade someone is always looking to knock you off the top of the mountain. Today, Archbishop Carney almost caused one of the biggest upsets in AA tennis history. It was almost Cavs' Carney Collapse, but instead Collingwood rallied and secured a 6-5 win when the mixed doubles team came through in the clutch.
The senior rugby team defeated the Tupper Tigers 50-10 today to win their third straight Lower Mainland AA title. The Cavs raced to an early 19-0 lead and never looked back as they once again used a mix of forward power running, great handling and outside speed to overwhelm an opponent.
The senior tennis team has posted their usual 2-0 start at the BC Championships. The team defeated Immaculata 9-2 and University Hill 10-1 today. The Cavs now play Archbishop Carney from Coquitlam tomorrow morning in the quarter-finals. As usual, Coach Wong has his talented squad ready for all comers as the Cavs look to add yet another provincial title to the Collingwood trophy case.
The senior rugby team defeated McMath 68-14 yesterday to advance to the Lower Mainland Final for eighth straight year. Collingwood has won the AA New Zealand Shield a record 12 times and will be looking to make it 13 when they play the Tupper Tigers next Thursday. The Tigers upset Rockridge 13-10 yesterday in a thrilling overtime match. Collingwood defeated Tupper in a league match before March Break, but the Tigers look to be a much more dangerous opponent than earlier this year.
The senior girls' soccer program spent many years in the proverbial sporting wilderness when it first started. It was often seen as a chance for recreational fun rather than a competitive challenge. In the past few years, the Collingwood program has changed completely. Two years ago, the Cavs won the league title. However, winning the league is not a ticket to the BC Championships, you must win one of two playoff games to earn the berth.
The North Shore Track and Field Championships were held yesterday at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby. Here is Coach McLaughlin's report on our Collingwood track stars:
The senior girls' soccer team had an amazing regular season finishing with a sparkling 6-0 record. This earned them a spot in the North Shore-Burnaby New West final on Monday. A win against St. Thomas More would have earned them a berth in the BC Championships. Despite taking a 1-0 lead late in the first half, the Cavs fell to a very strong STM squad 3-1 and now find themselves in a must-win game today against Sutherland.
Collingwood's golf team added another title to their 2018 list with a 39-stroke victory in the North Shore Championships yesterday. This massive victory bodes well for the upcoming BC Championships. The Cavs won silver last year at the provincials but are looking for gold this year. Here is Coach Payne's report:
When basketball season ends, Super-Coach Morgan McLaughlin does not put the clipboard and whistle away.She heads out to the track to help coach the track and field team and then in her spare time heads up the netball club. Recruiting heavily from the basketball program but willing to take on anyone who wants to learn, Morgan has built the Collingwood netball squad into one that has to be reckoned with at the BC Championships. Here is her report on the team's big win:
The Hatch Shield game is always an intense affair and Friday afternoon was no exception. Rockridge might be in the midst of a disappointing season by their very high standards, but they came to play in front of their home crowd and gave Collingwood all they could handle in the first half before the Cavs pulled away in the second stanza to post a convincing 40-0 victory. While the final scoreline was high, the game featured all the hard-hitting that is the trademark of Collingwood vs Rockridge battles.
The senior rugby team travelled to Victoria for their second-round match in the Stadium Series. The Cavs faced St. Michaels University School (SMUS) who have won the last three AA BC titles. To make things even more difficult, the game was played in front of a large crowd who were at SMUS for their annual alumni homecoming event. It was a fantastic atmosphere as two of the top teams in BC took to the field.
The senior tennis team was in a familiar position on Thursday afternoon. Once again, they had advanced to the North Shore Finals, but once again, Sentinel stood in their way of claiming the title. Coach Wong's talented squad gave the Spartans all they could handle but eventually fell 6-5 to their local rivals. However, the team is looking strong and peaking at just the right time as usual. The Cavs will be very hard to beat at the upcoming provincial championships. Here is Coach Wong's report:
The senior girls' soccer team kept their impressive win-streak alive with a 2-1 penalty shoot-out victory over Seycove yesterday. The league banner was on the line so it was no surprise that the tightly-fought game went to penalties.
Collingwood now finds itself in the 'driver's seat' for the zone playoffs. As the North Shore #1 seed, the Cavs automatically face the Burnaby-New West champion. The winner of this game on May 14 is given an automatic berth to the BC Championships. The loser will get another chance to qualify on Wednesday. Here is Coach Hodal's report on the title-winning victory:
For years, the North Shore junior tennis title has literally been conceded to the Sentinel Spartans from Day 1 of the season. Collingwood's plucky AA squad could never muster quite enough strength to upset the AAA Spartans. Yesterday, the Cavs rose up and defeated Sentinel 6-5 in an unbelievably tense match and brought home the trophy. Here is Coach Vidic's report on the huge win:
The senior soccer team pushed their league record to a sparkling 5-0 as they defeated STA 2-1 in a penalty shoot-out yesterday. McKinley Kennedy was the star of the show as she had a very unusual hat-trick. McKinley scored in regulation. She then scored in the penalty shoot-out. And to top things off, she stopped a STA penalty shot to secure the victory. Here is Coach Mulock's report on the great win:
The senior soccer girls posted two huge wins this week. First, they defeated Rockridge 4-0 on Monday afternoon. Tannis McKay, Alexa Bossley, Sophia Garofalo and Immy Fry all scored goals. Yesterday's match was far more intense against a fine Whistler squad.
The Cavs scored a brilliant goal in the first-minute of play. Alexa Bossley put in a terrific through-ball to Bella Parker who used her speed to break down the wing. Bella's cross was pin-point for a streaking Tannis McKay who hammered a shot off the post. When the rebound came back to her, Tannis calmly pushed it into the back of the net and the Cavs were up 1-0. Here is Coach Hodal's game report:
The golf team returned from Victoria late last night with the ISA Championship trophy in hand. Since all the top independent schools have outstanding golf teams, this is a very tough trophy to win. Collingwood has had a series of near-misses in the past few years, but the team put it together in the newly formatted two-day event and returned victorious. Here is Coach Payne's report:
Collingwood expanded its soccer squad so it could enter both a junior and senior team in the ISA Championships held last Thursday/Friday in South Surrey. The plans of having two strong teams went a little awry when some of the younger players dropped out at the last moment. This forced coaches Hodal and Mulock to send three of their star Grade 10's down to bolster the junior squad. The result was a powerhouse team that brought home the championship trophy. Here is Coach Mulock's report:
The mountain bike season is now underway. Here is Coach Ramsden's report on the first two races:
The senior rugby team continued its winning ways with a 60-12 victory over the McMath Wildcats. Collingwood beat McMath last year in a tough BC bronze medal game, but were far too strong for the Wildcats yesterday.
The senior tennis team had a fantastic Thursday at the UBC Tennis Centre as the boys' team won the ISA Championship and the girls' team finished 2nd. This was an outstanding way for the squad to start their year in earnest. Here is Coach Wong's report on the great day:
The senior girls' soccer team opened their season with a trip to the Elgin Park tournament. This tournament attracted some of the best AA and AAA teams from the White Rock/Surrey area so it was a perfect way to start the season. After four tough games in the tournament, the team has notched two impressive victories in North Shore league action. Here is a report on this terrific start to the season from Coach Mulock:
When Collingwood's rugby teams travel to Australia on their bi-annual tours, the coaches' greatest fear is a scorching hot game day as this all but guarantees a second-half swoon due to our players' inability to handle the heat. Yesterday, the tables were turned as the Cavs faced Sunshine Coast Grammar in horribly wet, cold and muddy conditions. This was undoubtedly, the worst weather our Aussie guests have ever played in.
The senior rugby team defeated Brentwood College 34-5 yesterday in an all-important Stadium Series game. The two teams came into the game knowing that the winner of this match can count on being ranked higher at the BC Championships so a lot was on line.
Coming off impressive wins over #4 ranked AAAA Carson Graham and #2 ranked AAA Lord Byng, the senior rugby team opened Lower Mainland AA league play with a convincing win over the Tupper Tigers. The Tigers are always a feisty side with some talented individuals, but they were no match for Collingwood's speed and power.
The senior rugby team continued its fine play this March with a win over Carson Graham today. Carson Graham are the defending BC AAA Champions so this was a true test for the Cavs. Collingwood won the contest four tries to one. Since this was an exhibition match, there were no kicks at goal taken.
