On March 25, 2017, the 14U DA Energy traveled to Ottawa to participate in the 15U Bugarski Cup. The girls entered the tournament ranked 7th with some strong 15U and 14U teams competing. Despite some very close games in pool play, DA Energy placed third in their pool. Following a game break and lunch, the girls pulled together in the first cross-over game beating 15U Ottawa Maverick Ambush in three sets, securing a spot in the semi-finals. After another game off, DA Energy experienced a bit of a lapse, struggling with unforced errors against the Ottawa Maverick Stampede, the team who went on to win the tournament. In the face of adversity, DA Energy showed grit and determination coming back as a team after the tough loss to win the Bronze medal match against the 14U Ottawa Maverick Outlaws. Moving from 7th to 3rd in the tournament left the girls with valuable confidence that they will take with them into the 14U Provincials which begin this Friday March 31st.
GOOD LUCK 14U GIRLS DA ENERGY!!!
