Silver & Bronze at Provincial “A” Championships
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
With the inspiration of Richmond Hill’s U19AA's winning bronze at the “AA” Provincial Ringette Championships recently, the U19A-Turner, U16A-McKnight, and U14A-West teams headed off to the “A” Provincials in Kitchener looking to medal as well.

Ranked second after round-robin play in the U19 McCarthy Division, the U19A team needed to get past the Whitby Wild in the semi-final, a team that had Richmond Hill’s number during the regular season, to advance to the Gold medal match.  After taking an early 2-0 lead on goals from Amanda McDougall and Alessia Roman, Whitby narrowed the gap to 2-1 going into the final frame.  Midway through the final frame Roman restored the 2 goal lead.  Whitby continued to press but the Lightning’s defence came up strong in limiting any scoring opportunities.  Whitby got within one goal with 24 seconds remaining, but by then it was too late and the Lightning advanced to play London in the Gold medal match.  In the final, London turned the tables by jumping out into an early 2-0 lead and then tightening up defensively to limit the Lightning’s scoring opportunities on route to a 4-1 win and relegating the Lightning as silver medallists.  Read more about the U19A story.

The U14A-West team came into the Provincial Championships ranked 2nd in Ontario before going undefeated and finishing first during round robin play with a record of 3-0-3 which included a 5-1 win over #1 ranked London.  Meeting a strong team from Forest in the semi-final who they tied 3-3 during round robin play, the Lightning jumped into an early 1-0 lead which they held going into the final frame, however Forest stormed back with 3 unanswered goals in defeating the Lightning 3-1 to advance to the Gold medal match and relegating the lightning to the Bronze medal match.  In the Bronze medal final the Lightning faced West Ferris where the Lightning once again scored first and continued to carry the play forcing West Ferris into penalty trouble on route to a 4-1 win and the Bronze medal.

The U16A team found that goals were hard to come by as they only gave up 16 goals over 6 games while only scoring 13 themselves.  They were unable to advance to medal play posting a 1-3-1 record during round robin play.  In fact the most goals scored by any of the 7 teams competing were 19, while the most surrendered was 18 which demonstrates just how evenly matched these teams were.

In other ringette action, both the U14B-Edward and U16B-Booth teams finished their regular season games with wins over teams from Sunderland 3-1 and 4-3 respectively and now prepare for the Southern and Central Regional finals.
