Provincial “A” Championship Results
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Monday, March 21, 2016
The Richmond Hill Lightning’s U14, U16, and U19 teams all qualified to play in the Provincial “A” Championships in Timmins this past weekend with all three teams coming away with medals.


Playing in the top tier, the U19A-File team was the lowest ranked team at 7th overall but showed they were not to be taken lightly when they opened the tournament with a 7-5 win over number one ranked Elora-Fergus, and then followed with a 5-4 win over 4th ranked Timmins.  The Lightning then skated to a 1-1 tie with fifth ranked Ottawa before dropping close matches to 3rd ranked West Ottawa 4-2 and number 2 ranked Forest 3-2. They got past the sixth ranked Ayr squad 2-1 in their final round robin match to finish tied with Timmins for 3rd overall with identical records of 3 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. This resulted in a 10 minute mini-game between the Lightning and Timmins to determine which team would advance to the medal round. The teams were knotted at 0-0 at the end of the 10 minute regulation game and went to sudden death overtime where Lizette Shulz scored in the first minute of extra time to vault the Lightning into the medal round for a rematch against Elora-Fergus to determine which team will advance to the gold medal final, or finish as Bronze medalists. Despite another strong effort against the top ranked team and the eventual gold medalists; the Lightning fell 3-1 to finish as Bronze medalists and a very respectable third best U19A team in the province. The goaltending duo of Brianna Cake and Sara Gervasi posted the second best goals against average at 2.63 with Shulz recording 10 points to finish 7th in tournament scoring.


Ranked fifth in the Tier II (McCarthy) division, the U16A Lightning quickly served notice that they came to play. Winning their first five games before settling for a 3-3 tie with Mitchell during round robin play, the Lightning finished first overall to secure a spot in the gold medal final. The gold medal final was a rematch with Mitchell where the Lightning carried much of the play forcing Mitchell to take numerous penalties. However, the Lightning had trouble finding the back of the net eventually falling 4-1 to finish as Silver medalists. Amanda Cuthbert, Leanne MacAskill, and Amy Bradford finished in the top ten in scoring while Erica Siow recorded the 3rd best goals against average (2.14) in net.


Also playing in the second tier of their division, the U14A-Chamandy team was the team to beat as they were ranked number one. The team quickly established why they were ranked where they were with wins over Whitby 5-1, West Ottawa 7-4, and Cambridge 6-4 before dropping a close 4-3 decision to Dorchester. The team had to settle for a 4-4 tie with Sault Ste. Marie before dropping another close 4-3 decision, this time at the hands of Ottawa. Finishing third after round robin play, the Lightning could redeem themselves with a rematch against Ottawa to determine who would advance to the gold medal match or go home as Bronze medalists.  The Lightning put together a solid effort in downing Ottawa 3-0 and was now faced with another opportunity for redemption, this time against Dorchester with the gold medal on the line. Unfortunately, Dorchester scored in the final minute of regulation to defeat the Lightning by a 4-3 score for the second time in the tournament while relegating the Lightning as Silver medalists. The Lightning’s Saveena Jandoo finished atop the leader board with 15 points in 6 games with Zahra Mustin, Rhianna Lin, and Kailey Trottier finishing in the top ten.

Another great showing by the Richmond Hill Ringette Association’s Provincial teams in the Championship finals!
