AA Provincial Ringette Championships
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Monday, March 14, 2016
The Richmond Hill Lightning’s U14, U16, and U19 teams all qualified to play in the AA Provincial Championships in Waterloo this past weekend with both the U14’s and U16’s getting off to a good start posting 3 wins and 1 loss in their first four games of round robin play. 


The U14’s started the tournament with a 2-1 win over the eventual Silver Medalists from Mitchell who had previously bested the Lightning in their season series 2 games to one. The Lightning dropped their next game 5-1 to the Waterloo Wildfire who has had the Lightning’s number all season long in posting a 3 win, one tie record during league play and outscoring the Lightning 23-11 in those matches. The Lightning rebounded with wins over West Ottawa 2-0 and Whitby 2-1 before their final matchup against Guelph with a playoff spot on the line for both teams. Unfortunately it was not to be for the Lightning as Guelph’s specialty teams netted 2 shorthanded goals en route to a 3-0 victory to book their place in the playoffs.

U16- Sarjeant

The U16’s opened with a strong game in goal by Elena Gamm as they got past Cambridge 4-3 on a 2 goal performance from Jada Laliberte. In their next match they got scoring from throughout the line up as they downed Gloucester-Cumberland 10-5 with Kate Vandeloo, Allie Pepper-Murray, and Laliberte each netting a pair of goals with Mackenzie Snelgrove adding a goal and 4 assists. The Lightning continued their winning ways with a 5-2 win over Nepean with 5 different scorers finding the back of the net before suffering their first loss at the hands of the eventual Silver Medalists from Mississauga 6-2. The Lightning split their final two RR games defeating Oshawa 6-3 before dropping a 6-4 decision to London to finish in a tie for the final playoff spot. This resulted in an elimination game between the Lightning and Ottawa where the Lightning’s run was halted when Ottawa scored with less than 3 minutes to play for a hard fought 2-1 victory to advance.

U19- Sandercock

The U19’s dropped their opener to Gloucester-Cumberland 4-1 before the offence exploded for eight goals against Mississauga en route to an 8-1 victory with Madison Sandercock netting the hat trick. Their next match found the Lightning skating to a 2-2 tie with a strong Ottawa squad before dropping a 7-2 decision to eventual Gold Medalists, Waterloo. The Lightning needed wins in their final 2 RR games plus help from other teams in order to stay in the playoff hunt. The Lightning got past Cambridge 3-2 in a hard fought battle when Alessia Roman broke a 2-2 tie with just over 5 minutes remaining to keep their playoff hopes alive. Their final RR game saw Exeter-Seaforth with a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half; however Sandercock tied the score early in second. Exeter-Seaforth retook the lead a few minutes later and held on for a 2-1 win in a wild finish to dash the Lightning’s playoff ambitions.

The team placed high enough to earn an invitation to the Canadian Ringette Championships that will be held in London, Ontario over the week of April 3-9, 2016.  Here is a link to the U19 schedule.  Stay tuned for more detail and webcast information.

In other Ringette action, the U9-Price team has quietly been putting together a strong finish to the regular season beating Barrie 9-3 and Newmarket 4-3 for their 9th win in the last 11 games after starting the season with 2 wins, 8 losses, and a tie. The team is now tied for 1st overall in the Central Division with one game remaining.

The U10-Applebaum squad finished the season with an exhilarating 9-9 tie against Oshawa as they get ready for the Central and Southern Regional Championships. Brynna King made the key saves at the key moments in net, as the Lightning clawed their way back from a 5-2 first period deficit. Sabah Esmail led the way with a hat trick; Natalie Applebaum netted a pair of goals; and Caitlyn Ling, Cassandra Young, Kam Vundemodalu and Cookie Liu added singles.

After reeling off three wins in a row the U14A-Chamandy team dropped their final game of the season to Cambridge 3-1. The Lightning still finished first overall with a 15 win, 4 losses, and 1 tie record as they prepare for the Provincial A Championships next weekend.

The U16A-Roman team bested St Clements 4-1 and Oshawa 8-1 in their final two matches to finish second overall as they head into the Provincial A Championships.

The U19A-File team could have taken over top spot in the CORL standings with a win in their final regular season game but fell 4-2 to Oshawa to finish one point behind Ajax in the standings as they head into the Provincial A Championships.

Lets Go Lightning!
