It’s hard to believe the end of January is here and we have competed in 2 tournaments. The weekend of January 16 we drove far north to snowy Sudbury for our U15 tournament. We had a tough start facing Titans Quest and lost in 2 games. We managed to pull together after that disappointing start and take a game off of Storm U15 girls but lost a tough tie breaker match to them 15-17. After refuelling at lunch and nursing some injuries in the players we faced Northumberland Chill in the pre-quarters and won 25-20 and 25-15. We faced the very skilled Leaside team in the quarters and finished our first game with a 20-25 loss to them. We gave them some good competition on the first game but lost our second match quite easily. The final game of the day had us face the U15 storm girls again but this time we wanted to redeem ourselves! We won the first set and lost the second so we faced another tie breaker with them. This time we won 15-12 which allows us to stay in 15u premier. Our girls were tired and sore after this tournament but knew they had a few days to rest as they needed to prepare for the next weekend U14 tournament.
We hosted this tournament at Maxwell Heights in Oshawa. The day went smoothly and as expected the competition was tough. It was the Premier East with some very strong teams.
We faced Barrie Elites in our fist match of the day. We won 25-16 but struggled and lost 19-25 in the second game. We took the tie breaker 15-5. Ottawa Mavericks were our next match and The Durham Attack U14 girls Infinity team. After the lunch break the girls came out strong and took the Thundercats and DRVC to 2 games each and won their way to the finals. We met Leaside in the finals who gave us a good competition. We rose to the occasion and had to play strong. We won in 2 games 25-12, 25-21. We came first in our pool so got the by for the pre quarters. We faced Pakmen in the quarters and we went to a tie breaker game and won. The semis saw us facing the U14 Scarborough Titans team and after losing the first game we almost came back to win the second but couldn’t quite do it! We lost 23-25.
The bronze medal match saw us facing Ottawa Mavericks again where we won 25-9, 25-13.
We proudly took home the bronze medal with Aurora Storm winning Gold and Scarborough Titans winning Silver.
