The OVA regular season has wrapped up for all age groups save for 18U. This past weekend saw six of our nine teams participate in Winter League play. Here is how the each team finished their weekend:
Acting as a host for their POD, the Walezi brought their typical high energy play to Haber Rec Center in Burlington. The team fought hard and were highly competitive in most of their matches, bought ended the day without securing a match win. The team now sets their sights on a friendly event on April 10th before participating game action in Division 2 at Provincials from April 14 – 16.
Like Walezi, the Sjamboks also played host to their Winter League POD at Haber Rec Center. The team went 3-2 on the day, with a couple of convincing match wins and being competitive in the two matches that they fell short. Overall, a successful day at the office. The Sjamboks will also play in a friendly on April 10th before hitting Provincials in Division 2 from April 14 – 16.
The Takobas travelled to Hamilton to participate in their Winter League POD. It was a tough start to the day, dropping the first two matches, however the team turned things around by taking the last 2 of 3 matches with their final match being the strongest of the day. They now enter Provincials on April 14th as the 29th seed in Division 2 and will also take part in a friendly match on April 10th.
The girls took their game play to the hardcourt in Brampton for their final OVA event of the season. Having another strong showing this season, the team played to a 4 – 1 record on the day, and a 2nd place finish on the day. They now await Provincial Championships where they enter as the 4th seed in Division 3.
It was a tough Saturday at the office for the Silahas. Having to travel to London, ON for their POD play matches, the team struggled to get into any sort of rhythm, winning only one set on the day. They now enter the Ontario Championships as a lower seed in 16U Division 4. All the best to the team as they try to finish the season on a winning note!
Much like the Silahas, the Kascara never got out of the starting blocks on Saturday. Although the managed to compete in a couple of sets, this young team of players new to the game got the chance to gain valuable playing experience as they head to Provincials to compete in Division 4 at 16U.
Good luck to all of our teams as they enter the final month of the indoor season!
