While the field hockey season ended last week for the Westmount Wildcats, Sofia Fox is already looking ahead to the 2015 season.

 The Wildcats’ coach noted she will need to do some recruiting as she expects to lose eight of her 17 players to graduation.

“I have a good core to keep us competitive, however I will be looking for some young new faces to be n the team next year,” Fox said.

Westmount was edged 1-0 in overtime by the Saltfleet Storm in the Hamilton public high school Division 1 final at a cold, wet and muddy Sackville Hill Park Oct. 21.

It was the second year in a row that Saltfleet beat Westmount in the final.

Fox noted her troops did a good job of containing some of the Storm’s key players during regulation time and they kept the ball in the Saltfleet end for a good part of the second half.

“We were definitely putting good pressure on them, however we weren’t able to reach the back of the net,” said Fox, who noted the Wildcats had a successful season with a 7-2 record, including a couple of overtime victories.
