OCRRL Regional Finals - Results Summary
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Monday, March 28, 2016
Three Richmond Hill Ringette Association (RHRA) teams reached the finals at the Ontario Central Region Ringette League (OCRRL) Regional Finals held in Oshawa March 24-26. 

U9 Division

The U9-Price squad opened the tournament Thursday afternoon with a 4-2 win over the Barrie Blizzard, before playing two games Friday where they bested Newmarket 6-4 and Oshawa 5-1 to finish the round robin portion undefeated to secure a spot in Saturday’s gold medal final. The final was a rematch with Barrie where the Lightning once again held the Blizzard to 2 goals en route to a 3-2 win to finish as gold medalists. The Lightning was also presented with a banner for finishing first overall in league play during the regular season.

U10 Division

Playing in the “Green” division, the Lightning’s U10-Weaver/Ianni team had trouble getting their scoring prowess going as they dropped their opener 9-2 to the Markham Bears with Agnes Laliberte and Hannah Weaver netting the Lightning goals. The Lightning got their goal scoring going in the next outing as they scored 10 times against Sunderland with Weaver netting 5; Laliberte netting 3; and Meghan Cizmar netting a pair. Unfortunately, Sunderland scored 11 to hand the Lightning their second loss. In their final match against Oshawa, Weaver continued to wield the hot hand as she netted 7 goals, but it wasn’t enough as Oshawa went on to a 10-7 victory.

Playing in the “Red” division, the Lightning’s U10-Applebaum squad opened the tournament with a solid 5-2 win over Mississauga before dropping a close 7-5 decision to Pickering. The Lightning’s final round robin game with the Whitby Wild would determine which team would advance to the gold medal final, however the Lightning couldn’t find that much needed scoring as they dropped a 10-4 decision to the Wild who went on to win the gold.

U12 Division

Both the U12-McKnight and U12-Harling Lightning teams were playing in the “Red” division. The McKnight squad opened the tournament with a pair of 3-3 ties with Newmarket and Oshawa. The Harling team dropped their opener to Oshawa 5-4 before besting Newmarket 6-4. This set up an all Richmond Hill match up to determine which Lightning team would advance to the gold medal final. Typical of the outcomes of when these two teams meet; the game was decided by a single goal as the Harling squad got past the McKnight team 4-3 to advance to the gold medal final.

U14 Division

The U14-Mews team opened the tournament with a strong game as they battled the eventual gold medalists from Oshawa to a 4-4 tie. However, they couldn’t seem to get anything going against the eventual silver medalists from Mississauga in their next outing as they were shut out 7-0. The team finished strong with a 7-0 shutout of their own over Sunderland, but it wasn’t enough to get them into the gold medal match as they finished third overall.

U16 Division

There were seven teams vying for a spot in the U16 gold medal match. Consequently, not all teams would face each other during round robin play which resulted in the final becoming a battle of undefeated teams. The U16-Thompson Lightning team, and the Whitby Wild, each posted a perfect 3 win, 0 loss record to advance with Whitby holding a slight advantage in goals for and against.  The final saw the Lightning jumping out to an early lead when Jocelyn Langlois found the back of the net on a power play before Mickayla Bistrovich added a goal late in the frame to give the Lightning a 2-0 lead at the half. Kylie Thompson, Alessandra Tuzi, and Bistrovich with her second of the game added goals in the final frame as the Lightning went on to a 5-1 victory to capture gold. The goaltending tandem of Jordan Ho and Haley Zanon played strong in net throughout the tournament posting a sparkling 1.75 goals against average. The Lightning was also presented with a banner for finishing first overall in league play during the regular season.
