Hamilton Open A wins Provincial Bronze
Hamilton Open ‘A’ team capped off a very successful season with a well-earned Bronze at Provincials in Newmarket in the McCarthy Division Tier I. The team finished their round robin play with a 3-1-2 record to secure their chance to go for Gold. Wins against Markham, Carlton Univ, Valley East, ties against Western Univ. and the Ottawa Gee-Gees (who went undefeated the entire tournament), and a regulation loss to nemesis Cambridge. Hamilton lost a key player in their 5th game of the tourney but managed to fill the void with total team effort but could not hold off Cambridge in the 2 vs. 3 game. Ottawa would end up winning it all. The coaches are proud to be part of a great team consisting of: Tisha Barnes, Sam Coleman, Kendra Wait, Christine Haynes, Danielle Clark, Shay Armstrong, Brit Firth, Heather Heaps, Carly Flemming, Brianne O’Rourke, Stephanie Black, Melissa Black, Sam Carruthers. Looking forward to next season ladies.
McMaster University wins Ontario Adult Invitational Cup
Congratulations to McMaster for achieving their first OAIC Gold in their inaugural entry in the event. Their start was slow but the team managed to pull together to secure a top four finish out of 12 teams in the Open ‘BB’ division. With a round robin record of 2-1-1 they finished in 4th place and lined up for a semi-final game against #1 Caledonia. McMaster rallied despite early deep penalty trouble to down Caledonia 5-3 for the right to go for Gold, but lost outstanding goalie Quantrill in the process to a hip injury. Meeting Pickering in the final with a substitute goalie in Alex Farmer (thanks Alex), McMaster game back from a 2-0 deficit to win 5-3 with full team effort and confidence they could prevail. The coaches are extremely proud how well the team played together, disciplined and a belief in themselves with as little game and practice time we had together as a team. Well done ladies, and let’s do this again next season. Team members: Jenny Sage, Kendra Wait, Hillary Quantrill, Ciara Levely, Amelia Savoie, Kelly Long, Melanie Gascoine, Rebecca Lariviere, Madison Vickers, Taylor Blatchley, Torie Frisina, Shay Armstrong. Additional members are Tracey Neufeld, Megan Levesque, Melissa Davies
