15U Girls DA Mighty Ninjas Shine Silver in 16U Championship East Provincial Cup!

The first 16U tournament of the season for Girls 15U Black “Mighty Ninjas” was the Provincial Cup Championship East on November 15th/14 in Keswick. The Mighty Ninjas had an up-and-down start in pool play – in the first match pulling out a very tight and thrilling win in the third set set vs. 16U Aurora Storm Surge (25-20, 23-25, 16-14), but losing the second match in two (19-25 and 13-25) against 16U Aurora Storm Vortex. The Ninjas cleaned up in the Quarter Finals vs. 16U Leaside Lightning (25-10, 25-14), and then faced the first team they played in the morning, 16U Storm Surge, in the Semis. This time it wasn’t so close – 25-16, 16-25 – but in the 3rd, the Ninjas gave Surge more than they had bargained for – dominating for the win 15-4! It was déjà vu again, as they faced their other morning opponent, 16U Storm Vortex, in the Gold Medal match. It was a very exciting match with the debut of the first ever Mighty Ninjas libero, and a very close 2nd set, but Vortex was determined and used their advantage of a year more development, taking the Gold in two straight (25-15, 25-23). Still, the Ninjas were thrilled to take home their first medal of the 2014-15 season – a Silver Medal at a 16U Championship tournament no less! Great result against top 16U teams!
