SAULT ICE HAWKS FLOCK TO PICKERING FOR ANNUAL TOURNAMENT
Submitted By Dennis Campbell on Friday, December 9, 2016
Hello again ringette fans as you are well aware the 2016/2017 ringette season is now in full swing and Pickering  played host this past weekend to the second event on the Sault Ice Hawks calendar with 3 teams from the Sault making the long trek to the shores of Lake Ontario. Representing the Sault were the U10 Ice Hawks coached by Dan Frigon, Chelsea Clingen and Chris Kresin, the U14 Ice Hawks coached by Pam Muncaster, Scott Booth, Dave Walker, Scott Bowman and the U16 Ice Hawks coached by Bruce Graham, Debbie Desgagne, Carl Desgagne and Marc Baril.

Competition for the U10 division was fierce and the effort shown by these young ladies was beyond expectation…they began the tournament with a hard fought loss 9-8 to the team from Nepean followed by a second loss to the eventual division winners Ajax by a score of 8-1. In the final game of the round robin tournament the U10 hawks were narrowly edged out by Newmarket in a 6-5 final.

In the U14 division the Sault opened the tournament dropping their first game by the narrowest of margins to Burlington 4-3…in the evening game on Friday the girls played to another hard fought decision dropping the second contest to Richmond Hill 5-3. On Saturday the team got out to an early lead on Markham but eventually dropped the decision 5-4 and in the final game of the tournament however the Sault prevailed over Elora Fergus by a 4-2 final elevating them to 4th place in the 7 team division.

In the U16 division our girls got off to a fast start with a win over Ottawa 4-1 and followed that up with a great effort and a 5-0 win over the tournament host Pickering. Saturday night saw our second meeting of the season with London, who narrowly won the first game of the season 1-0, the result in this meeting, was a physical hard fought scoreless draw. The teams were then reseeded for the final game of the round robin in which the Ice Hawks drew Ottawa…this time around, though the end result was still a win the game was not decided until the last few minutes when our side scored two quick goals to take the win 2-1. In the final the Sault matched up with London for the third game of the season but this time for the divisions gold medal game…the Ice Hawks opened the scoring in the first period only to have London tie the game late in the second period, however two quick tallies in the last minutes of the game secured the win and tournament title.

Having been a ringette dad for the past 10+ years I find myself in wonder at times with the manner in which these young ladies from our modest ringette association can compete in events with teams that are more centrally located to a much larger pool of competition…sometimes the final scores do not completely capture the efforts shown and the ability to compete at a higher level. So it is on that note I would like to take an opportunity to thank the coaching staff of all of the Sault Ice Hawk rep teams for their efforts and preparations that may not always show on the score sheets but definitely show in the level of competition each of their respective teams achieve.

GO ICE HAWKS!!!
