Tigers got some help from the Victoria League Selects in grabbing a share of top spot in the Vancouver Island Field Hockey Association competitive division on Sunday at UVic’s Lynn Beecroft Field.
An 8-2 romp over the UVic Vikes in the last game of the day sealed the deal for the Tigers (7-5-0), who kept their momentum rolling through the middle portion of the VIFHA schedule, posting their sixth win in the past eight games.
Connor Brown, one of a trio of talented siblings on the squad, led the attack against the Vikes with four goals, while Javier Virk chipped in three of his own. Shawn Kalar added a single to round out the scoring.
Finley O’Callaghan and Faarman Ajwa tallied for UVic (4-8-0), whose manpower woes have seen them drop first to fourth.
The previous game saw Rebels and Selects play to a 4-4 draw, giving the boys in red a single point, which allowed them to prevent Tigers from taking the outright lead in the standings.
Johnny Jacoby proved to be an elusive check in the game, scoring three times to lead the Rebels attack, while teammate Sawyer Ross bagged the team’s other goal.
Sunny Kahlon connected for a pair for Selects (4-4-3), who led 2-1 at the half, while * Jesse Kaloti* and TJ Parhar had singles.
The morning contest saw Marauders mount a second half comeback but fall short in a 4-3 loss to the rec division-leading Hawks, who won their seventh game in eight starts.
Hardeep Grewal for Hawks and Soner Uzun for Marauders had two goals each to lead their respective teams.
