U14A Lightning strikes Gold in Nepean
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Tuesday, November 18, 2014
Six Provincial teams from the Richmond Hill Ringette Association played in a tournament in Nepean recently with the U14A-West team bringing home Gold.  During the round robin portion the team posted a 2 win, 1 loss, and 1 tie record to finish tied for second place with Ajax but advanced to the medal match game thanks to a goal differential tie break rule.  

They met a strong Timmins team in the final, who had handed them their sole loss during round robin play 4-3.  The final was quite the see-saw battle with Timmins taking the early lead before the Lightning replied with 3 consecutive goals to take a 3-1 lead into the second half.  Timmins cut the lead to one goal early in the second half; however the Lightning restored the two goal cushion a little more than a minute later. Timmins kept coming on strong and tied the score at 4 with less than 9 minutes to play. The Lightning re-took the lead just under 2 minutes later and held on for a wild 5-4 finish and the Gold medal.  Maanasa Guda and Meera Sayal led the way each recording 11 points in 5 games with Daniela Sokolova posting a respectable 2.8 goals against average in net.

The U16AA-Sarjeant team went undefeated during round robin play with wins over GCRA 4-3, Ottawa 4-3, West Ottawa 6-3, and Gatineau 6-2 to finish first overall which set-up a rematch against Gatineau in the semi-final.  Unlike their first meeting, the Lightning was unable to take advantage on their power play opportunities, and neither team was able to find the back of the net in the first half.  The Lightning scored first to take a 1-0 lead early in the second half on a goal by Allie Pepper-Murray but was unable to add to the lead despite manufacturing some good scoring chances.  Gatineau eventually tied the score with 3 minutes remaining in regulation to force overtime.  Despite the strong goaltending of Jenni Hearn and Christina Mongillo who led the division with a 2.6 goals against average; Gatineau scored halfway through the first overtime period to win 2-1 and eliminate the Lightning from medal match play.  

The U14AA-Roman team was fit to be tied… literally!  Although they did not lose a game during the tournament, they only notched one win with the other three games played ending in a tie.  This left the Lightning tied for fourth place overall where the top four teams advance to the semi-finals.  Unfortunately the Lightning did not advance due to a tie breaker rule of goals for versus goals against.  Despite the result, the team showed that they are a competitive team to watch out for this season.

Another competitive outing came from the U16A-McKnight team who posted one win against 3 one goal losses.  While the outcome in this tournament was not what they would have liked after winning gold in Oshawa two weeks earlier, they continued to show their ability to compete.  The U12P-Ianni team started the tournament with a 4-4 tie against eventual silver medalists Ottawa, before dropping their next three games.  Haleigh Beam had 5 goals and 1 assist, and Kaylin Joy had 3 goals and 3 assists and were tied for second in the scoring stats of their division after round robin play.  

The U19AA-Sandercock team found themselves in an early 5-1 deficit in their first game, and although they rallied back they fell just short losing 6-5 to Ottawa before dropping another one goal game to eventual semi finalists Pickering 3-2.  The team then suffered a 7-0 loss to eventual gold medalist’s Guelph, before ending the tourney on a winning note with a 9-3 victory over Gatineau.

In other Ringette Action, the U9-Applebaum squad dropped a 12-9 decision to Cambridge.  Sabah Esmail potted 7 goals, with Hannah Weaver netting the other two for the Lightning.  U10 Harling team was missing 4 of their regulars when they faced a fast skating Pickering team. Despite the strong effort in net by Ashley Haji, who faced many 2nd period shots, the Lightning lost 8-4.  The U12-Chamandy team had a great road game taking down the Markham Bears 5-0.  The U12-Mews team had a very successful weekend winning a pair of games thanks to some timely scoring from Caelynn Wiseman who scored with 16 seconds left on the clock in a 5-4 win over Whitby coupled with her hat-trick in a 7-5 win over Paris.

The U14B-Giordan team travelled to Newmarket to post an 8-3 win before coming home to host the Markham Bears in an evening game that ended in a 7-7 draw.  The U16B-Thompson team dropped a 6-5 decision to Mississauga on a late goal scored with less than 2 minutes remaining.
