Another full weekend of OVA tournament action saw the last of the age groups – 15U – take to the courts for the Provincial Cup.
In Oakville, Lakeside hosted a Trillium White event that saw two of our 15U teams participate. Team Walezi finished top of the table for the tournament as they went on to win the event without dropping a set over the five matches on the day. Congratulations on a great day of play for Walezi!
Our Billao squad competed hard and split their morning pool play matches, but struggled to build any momentum in the afternoon playoff matches and ended up finishing the day in 7th place.
The Shujaa hit the road for their Trillium Green tournament, travelling to Simcoe, ON as the second seed for the event. After a slow start, the team kicked into high gear over the next three matches to set up a rematch with Norfolk Chaos – the team they fell to in the morning matches. Unfortunately, the Shujaa ran out of gas and could not endure, but a great day overall saw the team take second place.
Meanwhile, in Thorold, the Sjambok participated in a 12-team Trillium Green event. A split record of 1-1 had the team finish 2nd in their pool. A tough three-set loss to Niagara Rapids in the pre-quarter sent the Sjambok to the 9th/11th matchup where they won convincingly to secure 9th place in the event.
A successful and exciting day overall for our 15U girls. Next up for the group is the 16U Challenge Cup running over the weekend of December 9&10. Good luck to all of our teams!
