Red Hawks crowned COSSA champs
By Darren Lum
The Haliburton Highlands Secondary School varsity A field hockey team are going into the all-provincials next week as Central
Ontario Secondary School Athletics championship winners, beating North Hastings High School 1-0 in
regulation yesterday at the Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School sports field in Peterborough.
Haliburton earned its trip to the final against its arch-rival NHHS Huskies with a 2-0 win against
Crestwood in the semi-finals earlier in the day.
Hawks netminder Sydney Cameron earned shutouts in both games.
A late game decision by the fourth-year goalie helped to preserve the win when she dove out and cut
off a pass and the subsequent shot in close.
The NHHS Huskies of Bancroft also advanced to the OFSAA tournament next week.
They will host the tournament in Peterborough at the Fleming Sports Field Complex on Brealey Drive.
