Markham Stingers Pre-Season

The Durham Attack 16U Black team participated in their first tournament of the season on Saturday, November 10th in the Stingers Pre-Season tournament in Stouffville . This was the first tournament for the team with only 4 returning players. This was also the first opportunity for new coaches Paul and Chelsea to see the girls in game action.

Their first game found Durham Attack 16U facing Oakville Thunder White. The DA girls got off to a flying start with some excellent serving and offence taking the first match 25 -15. In the second game the Thunder seemed to settle down and provided the DA team with some stiff competition but the Attack girls managed to hang on for a 25 – 23 victory. Next up for the Attack girls in pool play were the Barrie Elites, again the Attack girls seemed to cruise for a first game win 25 – 16 but a closer second at 25 – 21. The last game of pool play was against a very quick Markham Stingers 15U team who didn’t seem to let any ball hit the floor and proved to be up to the task against an older DA team. This was to be the Attack’s first loss 22 – 25. In the second DA seemed to have their game back on track but the feisty Stingers kept pace. Thanks to some excellent serving the DA girls took the second 25 – 21 to finish first in their pool.

After finishing first in their pool the girl’s first crossover would be against the Markham Stingers Black team. Now the girls had a lunch break and a rest and were ready to play. This game was filled with some great serving and excellent defensive play and the girls cruised to a 25 – 16, and 25 – 16 win to advance to semi-finals in their first tournament of the season.

The semi-finals found the girls against another strong opponent the Storm Hurricanes, this was not to be an easy task and the Attack girls were able to win the match in 3 games in a very well played match by scores of 25 – 23, 16 – 25, 15 – 7. The girls were off to the Gold medal game against the host team Markham Stingers 16U.

The gold medal match saw the 2011/2012 National 3rd place team from Markham against a relatively new Attack team so their work was cut out for them. As expected the Stingers came on strong but the Attack girls kept pace losing the first 23 – 25. The second was a completely different game with the DA girls dominating and winning the second 25 – 13 to force game 3 for the Gold. The third game was just as exciting and the score went back and forth before the home Stingers took game 3 13 – 15 and the Gold Medal.

Congratulations girls and coaches! What a great season opener.
