What an achievement for the 2018-19 WORA U14AA-Fioravanti West Ottawa Ringette team to be presented with an Ottawa Sports Award on January 29, 2020. The team received their award for their first place finish at last season’s Provincial Championships in Waterloo, Ontario; and, for their representation of Ontario at the Eastern Canadian Ringette Championships in Oshawa, Ontario that were held April 18-21, 2019.
On February 1-2, 2020, the West Ottawa Ringette Association (WORA) entered teams into the Gloucester-Cumberland Ringette Association Tournament and there was no shortage of medals brought home to Stittsville by the girls. This proves that the ‘A’ teams playing the the Provincial Championships will be a force to be reckoned. The Provincial ‘A’ Ringette Championships are being held in Stittsville from March 19-22, 2020.
The WORA U14C Wild Spirits won Gold at the Gloucester-Cumberland tournament. The team went 2-0-1 in the round robin against local rivals Nepean and GCRA as well as a brand new opponent, Beaconsfield, who they also faced in the semi-final game. Going up against the undefeated CORA team in the finals, the girls knew they had a tough battle ahead, but they worked hard and played smart in an exciting, action-packed game and came up with a 2-1 win to secure the Gold.
WORA’s U19A team won Gold at the Gloucester-Cumberland Ringette Association tournament. The team played hard and went undefeated for the weekend. The tournament Gold wasn’t the only highlight this weekend for the team. The wins helped clinch the Eastern Regional Rep title for the team.
The players could count on their #1 Special Fan, sent along by a sidelined teammate, to cheer them on throughout the tournament.
Kudos to U12P-Berg on their Silver win at the Gloucester-Cumberland tournament. Going undefeated (4-0) in the round robin, the girls went into the semifinals Sunday on a high note. Facing a tough Ajax team in the semifinals they won a hard fought battle 5-2. In the finals they faced crosstown rival Metcalfe. The team again fought hard but came up short to leave the tournament with a silver medal – the fourth tournament in a row that they have brought home medals. The team is looking forward to playing in the April Provincials.
Team U14A-Gorham won Gold at the Gloucester-Cumberland tournament. After 4 hard fought round robin games, the team had to dig deep in the semis to come back from behind and net the winning goal with 8 seconds left in game. The final game vs. a very aggressive Nova Scotia team, was another rally from behind. The team was able to score in OT and take home the Gold.
The U14B Flying Squirrels played in the GCRA tournament, and they won another medal. They went 3-0 into the finals and brought home a Silver medal.
