Richmond Hill Medal Haul at Cambridge and Whitby Tournaments
Submitted By D Lee on Thursday, January 11, 2018
Teams from the Richmond Hill Ringette Association kicked off the new year in style with 4 silver medals at the Cambridge and Whitby Ringette Tournaments.

U10 Price wins Silver in Cambridge

Following a strong finish of the fall session to place 1st in their loop, the U10 Price team was excited to get back on the ice for their first tournament of the season in Cambridge.

The team came out ready to play in the first game, taking a solid lead early against Dorchester on the Olympic-sized ice and hanging on for an 8-4 victory to start the tournament.

In the Friday afternoon game Sunderland came out of the gates strong, checking and grinding to open the scoring. Though on their heels a bit at the beginning, U10 Price quickly adjusted to Sunderland’s play using their speed and skill to work around the heavy checking and take the game 11-5.

After convincing wins over Cambridge and Paris on Saturday, they placed first in the loop to move onto the gold medal game. The girls had some well deserved fun and a team dinner back at the hotel and got a good nights sleep ahead of the final versus Dorchester.

U10 Price again had a quick start taking an early 4-1 lead in the final. With a couple defensive breakdowns and penalties to kill, U10 Price let Dorchester back in the game with the score tied 4-4 at the half. During the second period some fatigue from playing 4 round robin games on the big ice surface was setting in, allowing the bigger and older Dorchester team to take control of the game for a 12-7 victory.

While it was not the result they were working for, U10 Price was proud to take home the silver medal and will be ready to go for gold at their next tournament in Newmarket.

The team started the tournament on a positive note on Friday with a 5-4 win over West Ottawa and 2-2 tie against Forest.  On Saturday morning, London and Richmond Hill tied 6-6 in a back-and-forth affair setting up a win-and-in game against the top U14AA team from Manitoba (the Magic) on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Ava Ianni, Caden Lee, and Kiana Fraser and excellent goaltending from Riley Hamilton carried the Lightning to a 3-1 victory and a Sunday AM birth in the final against Ontario's top U14AA team from GCRA.

Seven minutes into the final, Richmond Hill found itself down 4-0 and back on their heels.  After a timeout, the girls battled back on goals from Kiana Fraser, Makayla Nunno, and Victoria Lee and narrowed the margin to 5-3 at the break.  Despite many excellent scoring chances in the second period, the Bolts could not getting closer than that and the game ended 6-3 in favour of GCRA.

Other team members include Miranda Anderson, Taryn Joy, Alexia Himelfarb, Serena Saltarelli, Abigail Gelfand, Taylor Weatherall, Emily Haskins, Abby Bisson, and Abigayle Perry.
