16U OVA McGregor Cup

2018 / 02 / 17

16U Blackjacks were extremely disappointed in their last 16U Tournament where a 3 point lack of game management cost them and sent them down to Championship. That ache of giving it away motivated the girls in every practice leading up to the weekend. "Never Again" was the driving motto. Saturday started with a match against the Ottawa Fusion. With a focus on taking care of the ball the team won in two. The next match would be against the eventual Bronze Medalists, Durham Red. The girls with strong serving and some spectacular tip recoveries were able to take set one. In the second set one or two missed opportunities and we had to go to a third set. The girls stayed focused and did not give any light to the spunky Durham team and came out victorious. Play-offs: 1/4 final match against the Thundercats resulted in a convincing 2-set win. 1/2 final match against our 15U Ambush, back and forth it went but in the end a two set victory over their baby sisters. Final against DRVC, we had played them in the first OVA tournament of the year and had won a very tight 2 set match. This time it looked like the tank was empty for DRVC as we cruised to a 2 straight set victory to claim gold and return to Select where we have some unfinished business to take care off.

“ When you make a mistake, don't look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind, and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. ”
