The Durham Attack Black 16U girls travelled to Burlington this past weekend to compete against the top ranked Premier Division teams. The girls found themselves back in Premier Division ranked #7 after having won a gold medal in the Championship East tournament in December.
Placement put the girls in a strong pool with #1 ranked Pakmen and #6 ranked Defensa. After a tough pool play round the girls recorded a very close 13-15 loss to Pakmen in a third set and a close 15-11 third set win over Defensa. With all three teams having the same win/loss record it came down to points. The points for and against put Durham Attack in 3rd place, setting up a tough quarter final game against the “C” pool winner – the Halton Hurricanes.
The girls played excellent in a two set win over the Halton Hurricanes, winning both sets 25-21…off to the semi’s to meet the Pakmen girls.
In the semi’s the girls played well but lost in two sets to a strong Pakmen team, setting up a Bronze medal match against Defensa, who the girls had beat earlier in pool play. After a tough three set game Durham Attack Black came out on top to win a bronze medal.
Congratulations to Durham Attack 16U Black for an exciting tournament and great teamwork.
