A golden performance with a silver lining / Dec 5-7 summary
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Tuesday, December 9, 2014
The U19A-File Lightning team had quite the ride in reaching the finals of a ringette tournament in Mississauga recently.  Winning their first game of the tournament 5-2 over Guelph in what some might describe as a sloppy performance.  The team then ended up losing the second game they played in a match where they scored seven goals.  

Despite two goal performance from both Madeline Boyle and Jacqueline Badgery, with singles from Meg Casbourn, Lisette Schulz and Jenny Bedard; the Lightning allowed nine goals against in losing to Chatham.  The team bounced back with a gritty win over host Mississauga 5-4 in their third game to keep their medal hopes alive, with Badgery and Schulz potting a pair of goals each, and Casbourn netting the winner.  Needing a win in their final round robin game to advance to the gold medal match, the team came out fast taking an early 2-0 lead on goals by Talia Brock and Badgery. The teams traded goals the rest of the way with Badgery scoring the final two Lightning goals giving her a natural hat rick en route to a 4-2 win over Burlington, and a berth in the final.  The final was a rematch against Chatham where again there was no shortage of goals. Lisette Schulz had figured in on all five Lightning goals scoring three times while setting up the other two to stake the team to a 5-4 lead that they held into the final minute of regulation. Unfortunately, Chatham tied the game 5-5 with 12 seconds left on the clock and went on to win three minutes into overtime to relegate the Lightning as silver medalists. Jacqueline Badgery finished the tournament as the scoring leader of their division with 15 points in 5 games.

Also playing in the Mississauga Tournament, was the U16AA-Sarjeant team who started out with a pair of 5-5 ties against Elora-Fergus and host Mississauga before dropping a 5-1 decision to eventual gold medalists, London Lynx, and then ending the tourney with a 5-4 loss to Whitby.  Jada Laliberte had 4 goals and 2 assists in four games to finish in the top ten on the points leader board.

While the U19A and U16AA teams were in Mississauga, the U19AA-Sandercock team was in a tournament in St. Mary’s opening up the tourney with a pair of 5-4 losses to London and St. Clements despite playing well in both contests.  Things turned around in their third game which was the teams’ only ranking game in the tournament.  The entire team played an outstanding first period and were rewarded with 6 goals which they rode to a 6-2 victory over Cambridge.  Goals were scored by Sarah Esmail with two, with singles from Darcy Woods, Tiffany MacDonald, Madison Sandercock, and Mackenzie Craig.  Up next was one of the best teams in the province in the Guelph Predators where the team turned in a solid performance from Alexa Christopoulos in goal, right through the defence of Taylor Hobson, Mackenzie Craig, Jordan Koop, Clare Palmer and Jamie Zanon along with forwards Alessia Roman, Madison Sandercock, Tiffany MacDonald, Mackenzie Shaver, Darcy Woods, Sarah Esmail, Brienne Paterson, Megan Simone, and Brooklyn Kassermelli.  Despite the solid outing the team dropped their third one goal game of the tournament 2-1 with Mackenzie Craig getting the lone goal.  In a rematch against Guelph in the semi final, the Lightning provided another strong outing; however the Predators were able to capitalize on their opportunities taking the game 5-2 to advance to the final where they won gold.  

In other ringette action, The U9-applebaum team dropped an 8-3 decision to Cambridge despite an excellent performance by Caitlyn Ling in her debut in net.  Scoring for the Lightning were Hannah Weaver, Vanessa Kernohan and Natalie Applebaum.  The U12-Mews team came up with a defensive gem in posting a 4-3 win over the Pickering Shooting Stars thanks to goals by Natasha Willi, Jenna Marchand, Matangy Kanesamoorthy and Julia Mews, with timely saves in goal by Stephanie Zahn, especially in the last few minutes.  The U12P-Ianni team took down the Oshawa Storm 8-1 while the U14A-West team tied the Burlington Blast 3-3.  The U14AA-Roman team took to the road and shut out the Cambridge Turbos 2-0 on goals by Kate Vandeloo and Emily Gomes-Szoke with Victoria Gosio getting the shut out in net.  The team travelled on to Kitchener where they dropped a close game to the Wildcats 5-4.  The U16A-McKnight team had a very successful weekend posting home wins over Markham 3-1 and Whitby 7-4 before going on the road for a 6-2 victory over Cambridge.  the NRL Lightning split a pair of home games posting a 6-5 win over the Glouchester-Cumberland Devils before dropping a 7-4 decision to the Cambridge Turbos.
