• 13U Girls Red Team TNT take Bronze at McGregor Cup

    On Saturday January 24th team TNT took to the courts at Queen’s University in Kingston to play in the McGregor Cup.
    The girls were excited to get play under way as they were familiar with many of the teams in their pool.
    TNT started out strong against NBVC 13U winning both sets 25:10 and 25:13. This put TNT in a very confident mind set going into game two.
    The second match of the morning the girls faced the Maverick Rattlers. The Rattlers played to win, overcoming TNT in both sets with TNT losing 21:25 and 22:25. This would not dampen TNT’s spirit as the girls knew that after a quick lunch break they would be re-energized and ready to take on whatever the cross-over round would bring.
    As luck would have it, TNT was forced to face their sister team the Red Devils in the first round of the cross-over. The two teams have met before and it has always been a very close match. The Red Devils were determined to take down TNT winning the first set 25:14. TNT rallied back in the second set playing a nail biter winning 26:24 bringing this match to a tie breaker. TNT was not going to stop there, playing to win the third set 15:5. Coach Jeannine and Coach Gord were happy to see the girls put a great effort forth.
    As TNT surged forward, the next opponent was their mighty sister team Dynamite. TNT played their best games ever against the explosive team Dynamite even leading the set at times. Although TNT was defeated, their scores showed vast improvement in their game. They lost against this strong sister team 25:10 and 25:23. The girls were extremely proud of this performance. Team Dynamite went on to the final to win Gold.
    This brought TNT to the Bronze Medal match to meet the Maverick Rattlers for the second time in the day. This did not rattle TNT’s nerves. TNT knew what need to be done and they were determined to do it. TNT put to play all that they have learned. The girls won 25:10 and 25:20 to capture the Bronze.
    Well done TNT on another proud showing!!
