After going undefeated in the round-robin, the U14B Flying Squirrels lost to a hungry 4Cities team, both games played against the team were close and it was appreciated that 4Cities played in the WORA tournament. For those of you counting, that’s four tournament finals with one gold and three silvers for the Flying Squirrels. An amazing season indeed! Their last tournament is coming up and the girls are ready and want that gold. Look out, the Flying Squirrels are coming, and they’re hungry!
West Ottawa’s U8 Rockets played some great ringette and had lots of fun at the February 12 WORA Tournament. The girls not only won all three of their games, but spent some time in the stands cheering on the other WORA teams from the other divisions! It certainly was a great learning opportunity for the kids.
The girls of U12 Whiting won Gold after a long, hard-fought tournament of play at the WORA tournament. Having won three out of four games, they entered the final against one of their toughest opponents from the regular season. They showed their coaches and bench staff that all of their hard training from the season came together for a triumphant win and the gold.
West Ottawa U14A-Gorham who won Gold in double overtime – going 6-0 at the February 15-16 Newmarket Tournament.
