Historic weekend at RIM park

2017 / 04 / 23

Following up on their March GrandPrix win the 18u Mustangs were perfect this weekend under Coach Dunning, Lavigne, Gaboury and Martin went undefeated all weekend in claiming the Gold. The team saved their best for Sunday with a perfect 6-0 performance making the case for their 3 All Stars and Ken Davies awards. (Add to that setter Max St-Denis' 17u all star nod.)

The weekend was also huge for Coach Judi Mousseau and her 18u Broncos. This team suffered a few setbacks during the season and as such came in ranked behind their ability. The girls set that straight on days 1 and 2 with a 2-1 and 1-2 performance securing their place in the quarter-finals. The draw was tough in the opening round coming up against the defending OC champion Pakmen who gave the Broncos their only opening round blemish. The Broncos took care of the Mississauga group in three and then went on to dominate LVC who they beat on Saturday as well. Into the finals vs Halton Hurricanes a perennial finalist this season and the Broncos battled tough in the first set only to have the second run away from them as the Hurricanes ramped up their serving game. 

Finally the 14u Bandits who started the weekend in the 4th Seed position which brings with it a date in the power pool with #1 and if all goes well a rematch in the semis. Well all that and more took place for Paul Rainville's Bandits as they went 3-0 Friday and started Saturday perfect as well. Then the match-up with #1 Storm. The Bandits fell in three. Sunday the boys came out flying in their quarters. The win resulted in that rematch with storm where the guys took the lessons learned and went to work upsetting the Storm and moving into the finals vs Pakmen. Here the journey came to an end but the result meant two consecutive finals with Maverick 14u boys battling for gold. Exciting for the next few years to be sure.
