As luck of the draw would have it the Girls had there hands full right from the beginning by being in arguably the most difficult pool. The girls began the day facing Oakville Thunder in their first Match, losing 2 straight games 25-17, 25-18. In Match 2 they where determined to turn the day around and played a tight game winning both sets against MVC Hamilton 25-20, 25-18. The 3rd and Final Match of the day was the most exciting as we where facing one of our own and the eventual Tier 1 Gold medal wining Durham Attack Aces. Despite a strong effort and a very tight first game that saw the lead change hands several times they eventually lost 25-19, 25-10. This put us into 3rd place in our pool and a moved us into the Tier 2 division. The girls ended the day with a much deserved swim followed by a good dinner then of course shopping and last some fun bonding time at the hotel.

Day 2 began in a good manner with very positive attitudes and strong determination we manage to win both games 25-8, 25-17 against Brampton Selects 98’s. The 2nd win of the day and probably most important thus far came against the Akwesasne Soaring Eagles winning both sets 25-17, 25-16 which moved us to the semi-finals and assured us a chance to play for a medal. The next match was the “go to gold” match against a very tough Grizzlies team from Guleph. This was the girls tightest Match of the tournament that could of went either way but unfortunately we came out on the losing end 25-21 and 25-23.

This meant the Bronze Medal match for us, a situation we have been in many times before but the outcome was a much different and enjoyable one to watch. The Durham Attack Knack seemed to have just the “knack” and easily won both games against Waterdown Raiders Campbellville 25-12, 25-8 and finally an over due Bronze Medal for the girls.

Congratulations and job well done to Emma Baker, Grace Bischop, Emily Brooks, Elizabeth Crouchman, Katarina David, Angel Gallacher, Savannah Green, Lauren Kaminski, Jennifer Main, Amanda Moschella, Tristyn Smith, Coach Linda and Coach Kelly.
