The first annual Men’s Senior Indoor West Coast Championships was a huge success. Taking place at the end of February in Calgary, Alberta, the competition was the first of its kind and featured high level indoor field hockey. The gold medal match featured the Maroons the Kings 11—two talented local squads. The teams traded goals in the first half but in the end it was the Maroons’ quality front-of-goal defending that led them to claim the inaugural crown.
Maroons’ team captain, Manvir Grewal said, “when we play team defense, we’re hard to break. We took advantage of mistakes in their zone and countered quickly.”
The Maroons won a title in Boston earlier in the year and now added a Western Championships to their resume. According to Grewal, the team is excited to carry the momentum to the Canadian Indoor Championships taking place this month.
