Kamloops handball club wins in Abbotsford
The Kamloops Team Handball Club posted a pair of wins — 13-8 and 18-14 — over hometown Abbotsford on the weekend.
"They were good warm-up matches to the highlight of our season, which is the Battle of B.C. on April 13 at the Tournament Capital Centre," head coach Peter Hilton said.
"Clubs from Vancouver, Abbotsford and, possibly, Seattle will compete for the bragging rights of west coast team handball supremacy."
Last year, Kamloops beat Vancouver 25-24 to claim gold. Admission to this year's event is free.
Scoring on the weekend for Kamloops were Cam Rich (8), Quinn Bjordal (7), Ryan Gill (6), Mixon Madland (3), Jamie Niederaufner (3), Stuart McColl (3), Flo Simon (2) and Peter Hilton (1).
Dan Bott was the visiting team's goalkeeper.
