Gold Medal For West Ferris Ringette U19A Team

The West Ferris Ringette’s Under 19 Team came away with a gold medal from the Burlington Blast tournament over the weekend.

Their first game was a Northern Ontario match-up as the 63s met the Sault Ste. Marie Ice Hawks on Friday afternoon, beating them 8-1. A game against Mississauga later that day gave the team their second win of the day doubling Mississauga 4-2.

Saturday proved more challenging for our North Bay girls as they played a strong team from Nepean, taking a 3-2 loss in a fast-paced, action-packed game. This loss was only their second all season and their only loss in round robin play.

Saturday’s second game was a battle with the Markham Bears ending in a scoreless game for both sides and putting West Ferris in second place.

The gold medal game was a re-match against the Nepean Ravens. Nepean scored first, but the 63s quickly bounced back, tying the game. The scoring went back and forth with both teams very determined to win. The score was tied at 5 at the end of regulation time, sending the game into sudden death overtime. West Ferris scored after four minutes of nail-biting, edge of your seat action, earning them the win and their second gold medal of the season.
