Last weekend the 13U Blaze participated in their first 14U tournament of
the season the Provincial Cup in Uxbridge. They went into the tournament confident and excited after their gold
medal win in the 13U Provincial Cup in Ottawa the weekend before.
The team got off to a good start by defeating both DRVC Extreme and Aurora Storm Fire to win
their pool and earn themselves a buy in the crossover. The Blaze then moved on to the quarter finals where they faced Durham Attack 13U Blitz, their opponents fought hard but were defeated by the Blaze in 2 sets.
The Blaze then moved on to face the 14U DRVC team in the semi-finals, quickly beating them
in 2 sets.
Finally, the Blaze faced 14U Storm Surge in the final, they played with heart and determination but lost the first
set 25:16 and the second 25:18. Although they didn’t win the final game, the Blaze were proud
of how they played throughout the day and happy to take home a silver medal in their first 14U
tournament of the season.
A gold and silver in the first two tournaments of the season for Durham Attack Blaze! The Blaze intend to keep lighting it up for the rest of the season!
