Four Provincial Lightning teams holding down top spot
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Monday, January 12, 2015
Four of the seven Richmond Hill Provincial Ringette teams occupy top spot in their Central Ontario Ringette League (CORL) divisions at the halfway mark of the season.  The U12P-Ianni, U14A-West, U16A-McKnight, and U19A-File teams are all leading the way in their respective divisions.  

Playing in one of most closely contested divisions, the U14AA-Roman team currently sits in 7th place, but is only 2 points behind second place Guelph.  The U16AA-Sarjeant team occupies 5th place, while the U19AA-Sandercock team is in 6th place.

In other ringette news, several Lightning teams started the New Year playing in tournaments before resuming league action.  In a Waterloo tournament, the U12P-Ianni team brought home a silver medal after posting a 3 win, 1 loss record to advance to the final against a strong Waterloo team that beat all opponents by seven or more goals in each of their round robin contests; including a 10-3 decision over the Lightning.  In the final, the Lightning managed to tighten up defensively in a 6-1 loss with Caroline Routledge getting the lone goal.  Also playing in Waterloo, the U14AA-Roman team posted an impressive 3 win, 1 loss record in round robin play; but came away empty handed in a tight 2-1 overtime loss to Guelph in the semi final where Mackenzie Snelgrove got the lone Lightning marker. The U19AA-Sandercock team finished tied for 4th place with eventual gold medalists Nepean team; but did not advance as Nepean had a better goal differential. Similarly, the U16A-McKnight team was tied with London for a berth in the final but they too, did not advance due to goal differential.  The U16AA-Sarjeant team started the tourney with a solid win but were unable to advance after dropping their remaining 3 games.  Playing in a tournament in Whitby, the U19A-File team finished in second place after round robin play with a solid 3 win, 1 tie record but lost 5-3 to Forest in their semi-final match-up.  The U16B-Thompson team finished 3rd in their division while the U14A-West team finished tied for 5th with a respectable 2 win, 1 loss, and 1 tie record.  

In other action, the U9-Applebaum team kicked off the 2015 session with a solid 7-3 victory over Newmarket.  Natalie Applebaum had the hat trick; Caitlyn Ling added a goal and two helpers while Hannah Weaver, Vanessa Kernohan and Sabah Esmail rounded out the scoring.  Nicole Pham was terrific at keeping the ring out of her net, aided by excellent teamwork from Brynna King, Karmalini Vundemodalu and Isabel Ianni.  The U10-Harling team shook off their Holiday time quickly by cruising to an 8-0 victory over Paris. Ashley Haji recorded the shut out, supported by a very strong defensive effort by Michelle Pham, Katherine Harling, Violet Meadows and Sophia Laliberte. Taryn Joy led the attack with three goals while Alexia Himelfarb and Mary Rose Batthish added a pair each.  Victoria Harling netted the other goal on a set-up from 7 year old Agnes Laliberte with great support from Ashelle Adams and Saanvi Dixit.  In their next game, the team had a short bench of 9 players, but that didn't stop them from winning one for injured Katherine Harling. The girls put up a very strong defensive display while also showing their strong offensive skills. Taryn Joy led the way again with five goals while Alexia Himelfarb netted three and Mary Rose Batthish added a pair en route to a 10-4 decision over Richmond Hill’s U10-Laughlin team.  The U12-Mews team started 2015 with a 3-1 victory over Etobicoke and an 8-3 decision over Richmond Hill’s U12-Chamandy team.
The U14B-Giordan team had a busy opening weekend dropping a close 6-5 decision to Cambridge before splitting a pair of home-and-away games with Markham where the Lightning came away with a 7-5 win on the road before dropping an 8-6 decision to the Bears at home.  The Open B-Todd team skated to a 2-2 tie with the Ajax Shooting Stars.
