This week, Ringette Ontario would like to recognize the Paris Thunder U14B team as Team of the Week.
Most of our team has played together since bunny and U10. We have had new players join us and players from other associations that didn’t have a team but we always work hard to make sure they are part of the team on and off the ice. We had a great tournament in Gloucester exploring Ottawa and skating on the Canal. We had the chance to play amazing teams and came away with gold after an OT final game win. This past weekend we had our Paris Ringette Tournament and again on and off the ice this team showed how amazing they are. Half of the team hosted billets from Finland and made friendships that will last a lifetime. The rest of the team spent the weekend volunteering at the tournament or Shot Clocking, Time Keeping and Score Keeping. The tournament was a huge success because of the time and energy put in by all our teams and families to volunteer and step in wherever needed. In our tournament we didn’t have any teams registered for the U14B division so if this team wanted to play in their home tournament they would have to play in the U16 division. The team went into it playing as a team and working hard together to play our game. The team finished the round robin in first place and came home with the Silver medal after another amazing OT final game against Chatham. The bench staff could not be more proud of how every person on this team works hard and together to face any challenge and obstacle in front of them.
Ringette Ontario would like to commend these players, coaches, parents and the entire associations for their wonderful efforts and great sportsmanship this season ! Continue to Own The Rink!
