The U16 girls are also a force to be reckoned with. These young ladies had a great season. They finished league play as the top team. They continued their excellent play into Provincials and qualified for the Gold medal match. The team was behind 3-1 in the second half. The players showed great poise and maturity as they battled back to tie the match sending the game to penalty kicks. Their opponents won on penalty kicks 4-3. The game was extremely well played by both teams and was watched by a very, very large group of spectators.
Congratulations to the U16 Girls (Mackenzie, Brianna, Kiera, Rachelle, Zoe, Alaira, Lisa, Paige, Michaela, Chayanne, Jenna, Grace, Kaylie, Madisen, Haylee and Carmen) for all that they achieved this season including Gold in league play and Silver at Provincials.
