Weekend Round up

2016 / 12 / 04

With the ladies competing in 13 and 15u divisions and the boys at 15u and 17u there were lots of action on the court all over the province including the Mustangs heading south of the border for their first competition in Pennsylvania

In Oshawa the 16u Longhorns and 17u Rangers were at Maxwell Heights and making people sit up and take notice. The Longhorns may have only tipped the scale in their favour once in the ledger they did show many that they will be a team to watch-out for both at their age division and even when playing up. The 'Horns were able to extend their day with a win over the 17u Markham Wildcats but fell in their final match to Ottawa Fusion's 17u squad for 5th.

Meanwhile the Rangers were prepared to show the OVA that they were re-tooled and ready to go for the seson with a perfect pool record including a thrilling three win over Provincial Champion Durham Attack on their home court. Continuing to roll through the playoff rounds the Rangers strung together wins in the quarters over Reach Volleyball from Markham and Aurora Storm17u. The final was a rematch with the Attack Black squad and after squandering a 21-17 lead in the first set the boys were able to bounce back and win the second wire to wire. Bolting out to an 8-4 lead they must have left their magic on the other side of the court at the side switch because the wheels fell off the bus and a Silver lining would have to be their reward along with a promotion to Premier for their next event.

Meanwhile here in Ottawa the 15u Chargers, 15U Cavalry and 14u Bandits were all fighting for hardware at LDHS. The draw was a heavy Eastern Ontario draw and as expected the Chargers set out to improve on their season of a year ago, They were quick to establish dominance with a perfect record on the road to the Gold. The Cavalry which sports 5 new Maverick players quickly adapted to the play and recovered from a tough semi final loss to win the bronze putting two Mav teams on the podium. The Bandits proved that they are ready to play at this level with solid performances in each match.

The Mustangs have yet to report in but once they cross the border we will get an update.

On the ladies side we see that the 13u Rattlers and Sidewinders were quick to show their adaptation to the winning ways by finishing their day with wins in the Bronze for the Rattlers and the 5th place match for the Sidewinders.

At 15u with 6 teams playing it is hard to keep them all straight but here goes. Ambush and Stampede struggled at the Championship level but the Stampede will live to continue at that level. In the local trillium event the Trailblazers lost a tough battle to the Cornwall Vikings for Gold while the 14u Outlaws were 4th with a tough loss in the bronze. The Scouts, Pioneers were relegated to consolation and will fill us in soon I hope.
