Team TNT participated in the 14U Bugarski Cup on March 28.
The girls started their day playing against the Markham Wildcat Tiggers to which they were off to a good start playing point for point until Tiggers started to pull away winning the first set 25:19. TNT was determined to show them what they were made of in the second set. It was again a very close game with TNT leading most of the way through the game only to be overcome in the end 25:23.
The next set of games was against DRVC. This time around TNT played hard for a win 29:27 in the first set but lost the second 25:16.
The last game of the morning was against the mighty Scarborough Titans Quest. TNT has been up against this team before. TNT played a tight game with great blocks at the end of the first set. TNT lost both sets 25:16 and 25:9.
After lunch, TNT was 4th in their pool at the crossover and was yet again matched to play their sister team the Red Devils. TNT was off to a great start after re-fuelling and won both very well-played sets 25:22 and 25:17.
After the big win against the Devils, TNT met their other sister team the Black Dynamite. As always Dynamite was a force to be reckoned with as TNT lost both sets 25:8 and 25:6.
The last game of the day was against Leaside Lightning 13U which TNT has played in the past. Leaside played hard to win the first set 25:11, however TNT was not ready to give in coming back in the second to win 25:21 with the last point being very well hit into the back corner of the court. The tie-breaker was very intense. The teams were playing point for point with one team pulling slightly ahead and the then the other battling back to take the lead, only to lose 15:13.
TNT was ranked 9th at the beginning of the day and finished in 7th. It was a full day of practice and encouraging coaching which the girls will take forward to their upcoming Provincial Weekends in April.
