Tournament finals more exiting than Superbowl!
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Tuesday, February 4, 2014
The following tweet has been getting a lot of re-tweet action “Super Bowl is Super Bad this year! Our ringette tournament finals were way more exciting!!!”  Ten of the 12 division finals were decided by 2 goals or less making for some of the most exiting Richmond Hill Ringette finals ever, including games involving two Richmond Hill teams.  

The U16A Lightning took gold with a 5-3 decision over a strong Mitchell team to avenge a 5-1 loss incurred during round robin play at the hands of the same Mitchell team.  U16A_Gold_Medal_edited.JPGRichmond Hill never trailed in the final but did see their 2-0 lead evaporate before restoring 2 goal leads at 4-2 and 5-3.  Leading the attack in the final was Kylie Nobes with a pair of goals with singles coming from Isabel Boni, Lehna Shukster, and Lisette Schulz while Sara Gervasi was making game saving stops in net.  

The U10-Harling team came away with silver in a hard fought battle against Whitby 6-5.  Their only loss during round robin play was another hard fought battle with Whitby 7-5.  In the final, Whitby had 3 goal leads 3 times but the Lightning battled hard to get within a goal with over 7 minutes remaining before Whitby shut the door completely.  Scoring for the Harling team in the final was Makayla Nunno with 2 goals with singles coming from Taryn Joy, Alexa Togneri, and Caelynn Wiseman.  

Richmond Hill’s U12P-West team finished tied for 1st with 3 other teams with identical records of 2 wins, 1 loss, and a tie; but ended up in 4th and out of the final once the tie-breaker rules were applied.  Similarly, the U10-Lee team finished round robin play with an identical record as the U10-Harling team, but missed out on playing in the final due to goal differential.

Teams from Goderich were the big winners in the tournament with all four teams entered coming away with gold medals in their respective divisions. Walden also had 4 teams entered in the same divisions as Goderich, taking silver medals in 3 of those divisions.  

In the U12 Regional final, the Goderich and Walden teams entertained the crowd with a terrific see-saw battle. The Goderich team jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, only to see the Walden team storm back for a 3-2 lead before the Goderich team reclaimed the lead at 4-3.  The Walden team continued to press for the equalizer and with time running out and the goalie on the bench for an extra attacker; tied the score at 4-4 with 14.4 seconds remaining in regulation time.  Just when everyone thought the game would be going into overtime, the Goderich girls had one last possession and quickly penetrated the Walden Zone and scored with 4.4 seconds remaining on the clock to take a 5-4 lead. Walden managed to get a shot away before the final buzzer sounded but it was blocked and cleared away giving Goderich the win and the gold medal.

Here is how the other Richmond Hill teams did in their respective divisions.  The U14B, U14A-West, and U14AA teams finished in 3rd overall; the U10-Laughlin, U12, U12P-Zanon, U16B, and U19A teams finished 4th; the U16AA finished tied for 5th but was ranked 6th after tie-breaker rules were applied; and the U14A-Thompson team finished 7th.
