Entering into their first tournament of the year, expectations for the Avalanche Red were minimal, with the focus being on a fun weekend and some team bonding.
What transpired was an exciting event that saw a group of girls gel as a team and exceed all expectations.
The team went undefeated in round-robin play with three wins against Cambridge, Walkerton and Burlington and a tie against Stoney Creek.
The gold medal game against Barrie was a hard-fought match from the opening puck drop until the final buzzer. Although the score was 6-2 for Barrie, the action on the ice was fairly even.
It was a fantastic tournament, where the entire team played well and coming together as a team was the major achievement.
