On November 26th 2016 Durham Attack displayed the perfect amount of “RAGE” at the season’s first 14U OVA competition!!!! The Durham Attack 14U Raged showed why the name they collectively chose was a perfect fit for this years team!!!
In pool play the girls raged through the competition with convincing straight sets wins over teams from Georgina and Peel.
The teams flawless pool play seen them entering the knock out round as a well deserved number 1 seed!
With a walk through quarter final match against Troyka behind them, the girls were pitted against a formidable foe the “Thundercats”. In the opening set the Cats showed their Thunder and clawed out a 25-16 win over our girls.
But then it happened…..the girls and Coaches huddled, the team from Durham returned to the floor with a different look in their eyes and lived up to their name by raging through the final two sets as if the cats had instantly become kittens and won the match along with a chance to play for the gold!!!
In the finals, the Attack faced the Titans from Scarborough. The Rage played with passion and came very close to taking the powerful Titans to a final winner take all set but fell just a tad short of a gold this time around.
Congratulations on your well deserved Silver Medal and fantastic start to the OVA season!
Way to go Rage!!!!
