Gaels, Royals and Celtics jockey for position atop field hockey loop
GUELPH — With a week to go in the District 4/10 high school girls’ field hockey league’s regular season, three teams have distanced themselves from the rest of the pack.
The Guelph CVI Green Gaels won a pair of games Wednesday to remain unbeaten and atop the league at 5-0-1. They’re a point ahead of the Bishop Macdonell Celtics and Ross Royals who have identical 5-1-0 records. Bishop Mac scored two 1-0 wins Wednesday, one of them over Ross while the Royals rebounded from that setback to defeat the Centre Wellington Falcons 2-0.
The Green Gaels are looking for their first ever D10 field hockey crown while the Royals are after their first title since 1996 when they won for the seventh time in 11 years. And Bishop Mac has its eye on repeating as D10 champions and winning the title for the third time in four years.
